Wilfred Chen, Gore Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Delaware, is the recipient of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) 2015 D.I.C. Wang Award for Excellence in Biochemical Engineering. Chen is cited for the creative application of molecular techniques in engineering proteins and microbes to perform an extraordinary range of biotechnological tasks for bioremediation, biocatalysis, biofuel production, bioseparation and biosensing.
Polymer nanocomposites are used in a wide range of applications, from automobile parts and tires to high-tech electronics and solar cells. As with traditional composites, the properties of nanocomposites can be tailored to the requirements of specific applications, but achieving those properties can be challenging.
The University of Delaware is ranked 29th among public universities and 75th among all national universities in U.S. News and World Report’s Best Colleges 2016 edition.
Just three percent of America’s venture capital-backed startups are led by women and only about one percent by African-Americans. And, with capital for innovative startups predominantly available in just a few places, high-growth business creation is a challenge outside a handful of metro hubs. On Tuesday, Aug. 4, President Barack Obama hosted the first-ever White House Demo Day, aimed at changing those numbers to reflect better ethnic, gender and geographic diversity in entrepreneurship.
Jacob Bernoulli, Leonhard Euler and Simeon Poisson are all icons in the world of mathematics, but to Babatunde Ogunnaike, they’re more than just pioneers who developed foundational principles of engineering — they’re part of his academic heritage. That heritage is so important to Ogunnaike, dean of the University of Delaware College of Engineering, that he passes it along to each of his graduate students in the form of an academic tree upon graduation.
