Massimiliano “Max” Delferro is a chemist and group leader of the Catalysis Science Program in the Chemical Sciences and Engineering Division at Argonne National Laboratory.
Max’s work focuses on plastics recycling and the development of cleaner, safer solutions that benefit industries and individuals around the world. He is also a principal investigator of the Inorganometallic Catalyst Design Center, an Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Max earned his doctorate in organometallic chemistry from the University of Parma, Italy in 2008. He is a member of the American Chemical Society and has served as the president and program chair of the Catalysis Club of Chicago since 2016.
His research interests include the synthesis and characterization of multimetallic single-site hydrogenation/dehydrogenation catalysts to atomic layer deposition, polymer recycling and upcycling, additives for tribological applications, and supported organometallic catalysis for C-H and C-C transformation.

Dr. Lauren Charles, D.V.M., Ph.D., is a research data scientist in the Data Science and Analytics group at PNNL. Dr. Charles is a Veterinarian with a PhD trained in public health, epidemiology and zoonotic diseases as well as mathematics, biology, environmental and geographic information science, plant pathology, and bioinformatics.
Dr. Charles' research integrates heterogeneous data sources, e.g., medical records and disease reporting with social and news media, natural disasters, meteorological and climatic data, behavioral and cultural factors, into complex mathematical models to advance current Biosurveillance, event and anomaly detection, threat assessment, and early warning through a one-health approach. Her past research has focused on wildlife population health, epidemiology, ecology, and the interface between wildlife, humans, domestic, and agricultural animals. She currently focuses on One Health and National Security solutions in support of non-governmental and governmental organizations, e.g., State Department of Health, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Agency for International Development, and Department of Energy.
Matt Eichenfield is a Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff and the group leader of the MEMS-Enabled Quantum Photonics (MEQP) group at Sandia National Laboratories. Under Matt's direction and in collaboration with many other Sandia experts, the MEQP group works on bold solutions to the most demanding quantum science and engineering challenges using microsystems fabricated in Sandia's MESA nanofabrication facility. Examples of these microsystems include: piezoelectric photonic integrated circuits for control of atomic species with dense UV and optical circuitry; quantum transducers that convert microwave frequency quantum information between superconducting circuits, phonons, and photons; and generation of massive entangled states of photons using integrated quantum emitters and photonic integrated circuits at cryogenic temperatures. Matt received his PhD from Caltech in 2009 in the field of quantum nano-optomechanical systems and received the Demetriades Award for best thesis. Subsequently, Matt was the Kavli Nanoscience Institute Prize Postdoctoral Fellow at Caltech until joining Sandia in 2011 as a Harry S. Truman Presidential Fellow in National Security Science and Engineering.
