Segalman to Present 2023 Acrivos Professional Progress Award Lecture

Rachel A. Segalman

Rachel A. Segalman, the Edward Noble Kramer Professor of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Materials and the Warren G. and Katherine S. Schlinger Department Chair of Chemical Engineering at the Univ. of California, Santa Barbara, will present AIChE’s Andreas Acrivos Professional Progress Award Lecture for 2023. The 2022 recipient of the Acrivos Award for Professional Progress in Chemical Engineering, Segalman will discuss her research at the 2023 AIChE Annual Meeting on Nov. 7 in Orlando, FL.

The Award recognizes the contributions of a chemical engineer in their early career. It is endowed by the AIChE Foundation and named in honor of Andreas Acrivos, Professor Emeritus at The City College of New York, who is a pioneer in the field of fluid dynamics and an influential leader in the chemical engineering profession. The associated lecture is a highlight of each year’s AIChE Annual Meeting — a foremost educational forum for chemical engineers working in research and development.

In her lecture, entitled “Charge Neutral Polymer Complexes as Battery Components,” Segalman will discuss superionic conductivity, and her research team’s work to design semi-crystalline zwitterionic polymers that demonstrate superionic conductivity for use in lithium-ion batteries and other applications.

At UC Santa Barbara, Segalman and her research group work on controlling the structure and thermodynamics of functional polymers for...
