UCLA Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department invites their Alumni to their first Alumni Reunion
Join fellow chemical engineering alumni, faculty, students, friends and other distinguished guests for dinner, networking, entertainment, department talks, and student posters.
The academy’s citation recognized Liao "for advances in metabolic engineering of microorganisms to produce fuels and chemicals." He joins 68 other new members and 11 foreign associates elected for their outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education," the academy announced today.
Christofides, a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and of electrical engineering at UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, was honored for "the development of rigorous methods for analysis and control of nonlinear, hybrid and distributed parameter processes." His research interests are in the areas of control, dynamics and optimization, including both theory and applications; computational process modeling and simulation; and applied mathematics. His laboratory seeks to develop new methods for the systematic and rigorous solution of complex process-control and systems-engineering problems.
The Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department of the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is seeking a faculty candidate with extraordinary research and teaching capability in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
