Professors Jonathan Rothstein and Jungwoo Lee have been selected as outstanding faculty in the College of Engineering in 2020. These selections were made through the hard work of a college-level faculty selection committee.
In a new College of Engineering record for one year, five of our researchers have obtained career-boosting grants from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program. The accomplishment includes another record of four CAREER recipients from the Chemical Engineering (ChE) Department.
The Department of Energy (DoE) website Energy Research Newsletter recently carried an enlightening profile about Assistant Professor Omar Abdelrahman of the Chemical Engineering (ChE) Department dealing with what writer ChoongSze Lee called Abdelrahman’s “non-traditional” academic journey to the West. After earning his Doctorate in Chemical Engineering at Syracuse University in 2016, Abdelrahman served as a post-doc in former UMass ChE Professor Paul Dauenhauer’s lab at the University of Minnesota, an experience which, along with other influences, helped to transform Abdelrahman’s view of science.
