The Institute and Board of Directors’ Awards are AIChE’s highest annual honors, with each recipient nominated by the chemical engineering community and voted on by the members of AIChE’s volunteer-led Awards Committee. The awards recognize eminent achievements and world-class contributions across a spectrum of chemical engineering endeavors.
Ronald G. Larson of the University of Michigan will receive this year's William H. Walker Award for Excellence in Contributions to Chemical Engineering Literature. Read more about his career and accomplishments.
Laura J. Dietsche, PhD, P.E., Senior Research Scientist at Dow in Midland, Michigan, will receive the award for contributions in the application of computational fluid dynamics to advance chemical manufacturing capabilities, equipment design, and materials development.
This early-career award goes to Ryan Lively for his work creating novel, scalable materials for small molecule separations, and for the conceptual and experimental development of the organic solvent reverse osmosis separation modality.
Dr. Jeong and co-recipient Dr. Lai are being recognized for pioneering contributions and sustained excellence in the field of metal-organic framework membranes for gas separations development.
Dr. Lai of KAUST (Saudi Arabia) is recognized for his pioneering contributions to the advancement of technology in the production, distribution, and application of industrial gases.
Dr. Kotov is being recognized for his fundamental studies and practical implementations of self-assembly processes at the nanoscale.
