CHME - Research Seminar Series


Research Seminar Series


Throughout the Research Seminar Series, faculty of the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering and invited guest speakers from both academia and industry, present their research topics for the benefit of current and prospective graduate students, alumni, and chemical engineering professionals. During each seminar, speakers give a 30-40 minute presentation, immediately followed by a question and answer period. There is no need to RSVP, however, refreshments are first-come, first-served. Seminars are open to the public and interested students from any major are encouraged to attend.

Research areas to be presented throughout this series include:
  • Biocatalysis
  • Biomaterials
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Biomolecular Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Heat Transfer
  • Materials
  • Modeling, Simulation & Theory
  • Molecular Medicine
  • Nanotechnology
  • Polymers
  • Reactors, Kinetics & Catalysis
  • Surface & Interface Science
