Debenedetti to receive the 2008 AIChE Walker Award

Pablo Debenedetti, Class of 1950 Professor of Chemical Engineering and Vice Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, will receive the 2008 William H. Walker Award for Excellence in Contributions to Chemical Engineering Literature from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) at its November Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. The award recognizes Debenedetti’s “outstanding contributions on the theory of hydrophobicity, the thermodynamics of supercooled and glassy water, the properties of water in nano-scale confinement, and the theory of glasses and supercooled liquids.”  Other Princeton faculty who have received this prestigious award include William Russel (1992), William Schowalter (1982), and James Wei (1980).
