The Futures issue parallels the annual Founders issue, which honors an eminent chemical engineering scholar through a collection of contributions from colleagues, former students, and collaborators. While the Founders issue celebrates the scholarly legacies of the greats from our profession, the Futures issue recognizes the scholarly potential of emerging scholars. “I am hopeful and expect that a future Amundson, Bird, Prausnitz,...
