Phil Westmoreland is Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at North Carolina State University. He was 2013 President of AIChE, was the founding chair of the Computational Molecular Science and Engineering Forum, is a Fellow of AIChE and the Combustion Institute, and is a trustee and past president of CACHE (Computer Aids for Chemical Engineering Education). He received the 2017 AIChE Institute Award for Excellence in Industrial Gases Technology for his experimental and computational achievements in the chemistry of fire suppressants and air-pollutant prevention. He also received the American Society for Engineering Education's 2002 William H. Corcoran Award, AIChE's 2007 George Lappin Award, and shared the 2009 AIChE Gary Leach Award. His chemical engineering degrees are from N.C. State (BS), LSU (MS), and MIT (PhD).
