Panagiotopoulos Elected AIChE Fellow
Athanassios Z. Panagiotopoulos, Susan Dod Brown Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering, has been elected as a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), as approved by the AIChE Board of Directors at their March meeting. Panagiotopoulos was recognized for his exceptional, sustained accomplishment in the creation of computational methods for the analysis and prediction of the behavior of complex fluids of interest to the chemical engineering community, and for his extensive service to the profession, including through the AIChE. As described in AIChE's Constitution and By-laws, election as Fellow—the highest grade of membership— “shall be recognition of professional attainment, and significant accomplishment in engineering.” In 2008, a history of the AIChE Fellows program was written to coincide with the AIChE Centennial. Panagiotopoulos will be recognized at this year’s AIChE Annual Meeting in Atlanta, at the Fellows Breakfast on November 18.
