Gina Fioroni is a senior scientist and acting group manager for the Fuels and Combustion Sciences group within the Center for Integrated Mobility Systems. Fioroni joined NREL in 2009 and has worked in the fuels performance area, designing, and conducting experiments to analyze the quality and chemistry of alternative and low net-carbon fuels for the difficult-to-electrify aviation, marine, long-haul trucking, and rail sectors. She has been the principal investigator on numerous projects, developing technologies for new analytical methods with state-of-the-art techniques. She has extensive experience in liquid and gas phase chromatography, thermal analysis, organic synthesis, experimental gas phase reaction kinetics, and rheology of fluids.
