Yovani Trujillo is a junior Chemical Engineering major expecting to graduate in May 2019. In the past, Yovani has been a Resident Advisor, an SEP Tutor for most STEM classes, Teaching Assistant for Introduction to Engineering and Co-Founder/VP Finance for the Non-Music Major Orchestra. He is currently a member of AIChE and SHPE and will be serving as the Vice Chair of Social Events for the General Events team in The Energy Coalition. Yovani has worked an internship with Praxair in their HyCO operations group. He was placed in the Marathon Galveston Bay Refinery at twin hydrogen plants to gain experience with unit operations and process control systems. He has had the privilege of learning about Steam Methane Reformers, Pressure Swing Adsorbers and overall plant efficiency.

Yovani's career goals are to work in design or plant operations and eventually hold an executive position so that he can make a larger impact in energy and the direction it should take. He hopes to eventually retire and become a professor for the next generation of scientists and engineers so that they can tackle the energy and engineering related challenges. He is a first generation college student and would like to provide opportunities and guidance through his position with The Energy Coalition for incoming students who will face the same challenges that he has.
