Marc-Olivier COPPENS is Ramsay Memorial Professor in Chemical Engineering at UCL, since 2012. Having been Head of Department for almost 8 years, he is becoming the first Vice-Dean for Interdisciplinarity at the Faculty for Engineering Sciences. Prior to UCL, he was Professor at Rensselaer and TUDelft. He founded and directs the UCL Centre for Nature-Inspired Engineering, which was granted EPSRC Frontier Engineering (2013) and Progression (2019) Awards. He is most recognized for pioneering nature-inspired chemical engineering (NICE): learning from fundamental mechanisms underpinning desirable traits in nature to develop innovative solutions to engineering challenges. A Fellow of AIChE and IChemE, Corresponding Member of the Saxon Academy of Sciences (Germany), and Qiushi Professor at Zhejiang University, he has published >150 journal articles and delivered >50 named lectures, plenaries and keynotes. He received the AIChE PSRI Lectureship Award in Fluidization (2017), and School of Engineering Education Awards at RPI (2012) and UCL (2020).
