Two graduate students from Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering were honored during the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) 2013 annual meeting that took place November 3 to 8 at San Francisco, California.
The focus of this year’s meeting was “Global Challenges for Engineering a Sustainable Future.” Chemical engineers from across the world addressed the latest research in energy, water, sustainability, pharmaceuticals and health care in more than 750 sessions.
Folarin Latinwo and Danielle Mai, both graduate students in Assistant Professor Charles Schroeder’s research group, placed in the Fluid Mechanics graduate student poster session at the AIChE annual meeting.
Latinwo was awarded first place for his poster “Nonequilibrium Work Relations for Dilute Polymer Solutions.” He and Schroeder were authors on the poster.
Mai received second place for her poster “Flexible Branched Polymers for Single Molecule Rheology.” Authors on the poster were Mai, Schroeder, Amanda B. Marciel, and Christopher Brockman.
