Information exchange, research and project appraisal, and process immersion were among the underlying accomplishments of a June 20 – 21, 2018 trip to and tour of Praxair headquarters and facilities in upstate New York, where CIVS Director Dr. Chenn Zhou, Senior Research Scientist John Moreland, and Dr. Tyamo Okosun delivered presentations on a variety of simulation- and visualization-based projects and Consortium accomplishments.
While at the facilities, the CIVS staff were able to discuss and re-explore previous collaborative activities and update industry research partners on further advancements and investigative avenues … and found photo-op moments alongside well-polished friends, and the engineers who constructed them.
“We were very impressed with the facilities, people, and culture at Praxair,” Zhou said, “and are always pleased to explore more opportunities for collaboration.” Added Moreland, “It was impossible not to smile and appreciate the creativity and integration of only-partly-decorative physical equipment and workspace in the facilities. We felt quite at home.”
