Meliton Chiong III
Mel completed his MS degree in Materials Science and Engineering in 2017 with the support of the DOST ASTHRD Program. He used density functional theory to perform electronic structure and nudged elastic band calculations to model the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide with an organocobalt catalyst. He obtained his BS degree in Chemistry from UP Diliman and was one of the top scorers in the 2016 Licensure Examination for Chemists.
