It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of our friend, mentor and associate Dr. Marco A. Satyro.
Marco, one of the original founders of Virtual Materials Group, continued his interests in thermodynamics and development of properties predictions from his initial days with Hyprotech and developed the foundation of VMG’s simulation program and property predictions. His dedication to the development of the thermodynamic engine for VMGSim and corporate leadership was instrumental in leading VMG through its early years of growth.
In recent years Marco shared his passion for science at Clarkson University and most recently at HTRI. As a professor he was loved and respected. His students couldn’t help to be fascinated with Marco’s enthusiasm for Chemical Engineering either at the University of Calgary or Clarkson University.
The legacy of his technical works will continue to reach thousands of engineers around the world every day through the software and publications he created. He was an absolute pleasure and joy to work with and be around. He will be greatly missed.
Details of Memorial services are forthcoming and will be available on our website when they are available. We will pass any messages passed to us to Marco’s family.
