Hey! My name is Jonathan Santoso and I'm a senior undergraduate studying chemical engineering with a concentration in energy and environment. Though I am a chemical engineer (in training), I put special focus on sustainability and negative emission technologies (NETs). In my free time, I love to read motivational/self-help and wholesome books (e.g. "tuesdays with Morrie", "Don't sweat the small stuff", etc.) and watch YouTube or browse Reddit.
The people that I've met in Energy Journal Club (CBE 98/198) and Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CBE 195/295Z) have led me to learn about Cal Energy Corps. I currently work at the Carbon Removal Lab with Professor Daniel Sanchez along with a great mentor, Jun Wong, and they have been incredibly supportive in my application for Cal Energy Corps. I'm happy to announce that I will be working with Integral Group for this summer in the Mechanical Engineering department. I am hoping that I can dig deeper into the world of sustainability and help drive the world closer to net zero carbon (and even negative!). I'm also incredibly excited to share my thoughts and reflections along my journey in Integral Group. Hope you'll enjoy being a part of this journey through future posts!
