CBE graduate alumni Chrysanthos Gounaris *08 (now at Carnegie-Mellon University) and Karthikeyan Rajendran *13 (now at Bloomberg LP), along with current CBE faculty Ioannis Kevrekidis and emeritus faculty Christodoulos Floudas, have been jointly awarded the 2016 Glover-Klingman Prize for their paper, “Designing Networks: A Mixed-Integer Linear Optimization Approach”.  Established in 2003, the Glover-Klingman Prize is awarded annually for the best paper published in the Wiley jou
Professor Yannis Kevrekidis will retire from the University effective July 1, 2017, with the titles of Pomeroy and Betty Perry Smith Professor in Engineering, Emeritus, and Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering and Applied and Computational Mathematics, Emeritus. Professor Kevrekidis joined Princeton's chemical engineering faculty in 1986. Research in the Kevrekidis group has focused on the dynamic behavior of chemically reacting systems, and the development of innovative com
Yannis Kevrekidis, Pomeroy and Betty Smith Professor in Engineering and  Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering, has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, as announced in a press release issued today.  The Academy, founded in 1780 and headquartered in Cambridge, MA, is an independent policy research center that conducts multidisciplinary studies of complex and emerging problems.  This year, the Academy elected 228 new members, spanning the fields of
On February 21, the University announced three new projects to be supported by the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Transformative Technology Fund, a generously endowed fund which “gives Princeton the capacity to invest in truly innovative and highly promising research — research that is often considered too forward-looking for traditional funding mechanisms”.  One of these three projects, targeted at the optimization of biofuel production, will be pursued by Jose Avalos, Assistant
Yannis G. Kevrekidis, Pomeroy and Betty Perry Smith Professor in Engineering and  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.  Kevrekidis was recognized as “both an inspired and original researcher and an effective educator… due to the interdisciplinary nature of his work, he has also been an ambassador and a link between our profession a
Yannis Kevrekidis, the Pomeroy and Betty Perry Smith Professor in Engineering and Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering, was selected to receive the 2016 W. T. and Idalia Reid Prize. The Prize, consisting of an engraved medal and a monetary award of $10,000, is awarded every year by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) at their Annual Meeting.  Kevrekidis is cited for his “pioneering work on the ‘equation-free’ framework for c
Yannis Kevrekidis, the Pomeroy and Betty Perry Smith Professor in engineering and Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering, was selected by the University of Houston Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering faculty as the 2016 Payatakes Memorial Lecturer.  Alkis Payatakes was a former member of the UH faculty who made seminal contributions to transport phenomena and fluid mechanics focus on porous media, colloidal systems, and biological media. The lecture will be given i

Professor Yannis Kevrekidis, the Pomeroy and Betty Perry Smith Professor in Engineering and Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering, has been named an Einstein Visiting Fellow in Berlin (through the Free University and the Zuse Institute). This is a two-year association which comes with a total of 300K Euro to support collaborative research activities.  He also has been named a Rothschild Visiting Distinguished Fellow as part of a semester-long program in Stochastic Dynam
Yannis Kevrekidis, Pomeroy and Betty Perry Smith Professor in Engineering and Professor of Chemical Engineering, has been appointed as a Hans Fischer Senior Fellow at the Technical University of Munich Institute for Advanced Study (TUM-IAS).  Named for Professor Hans Fischer, 1930 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, the fellowship runs for three years and will allow Professor Kevrekidis to spend an extended period at TUM-IAS, beginning with a sabbatical leave this Fall, to further his collaborati
At a lunch and ceremony on February 22, open to the entire School of Engineering and Applied Science, the Princeton Engineering Council (E-Council) and Graduate Engineering Council (GEC) jointly recognized a record-breaking FOUR members of the CBE department for their excellence in teaching during Fall 2012.  Professor Yannis Kevrekidis was recognized for his teaching in the graduate-level course CBE 502, “Mathematical Methods of Engineering Analysis II”.  Professor Pablo D
Fourth-year Chemical and Biological Engineering Ph.D. student Karthikeyan Rajendran has been named as one of three 2012 recipients of the Ray Grimm Memorial Prize.  Rajendran, who is working with Professor Yannis Kevrekidis, was recognized with the $4,000 prize, “for his ingenious and innovative combination of modeling and scientific computing tools, from nonlinear dynamics, multiscale modeling, optimization and uncertainty quantification with ideas from graph theory towards the model
Yannis Kevrekidis, Pomeroy and Betty Perry Smith Professor in Engineering and Professor of Chemical Engineering, will receive the 2010 R. H. Wilhelm Award in Chemical Reaction Engineering from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).
Yannis Kevrekidis, Pomeroy and Betty Perry Smith Professor in Engineering and Professor of Chemical Engineering and in the Program and Applied and Computational Mathematics, and an associated faculty member in Mathematics, has been named a fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
Isolated n-alkane chains in water serve as useful model systems in which to study the role of hydrophobicity in protein folding. A nonlinear dimensionality reduction technique known as the diffusion map, was applied to long molecular dynamics simulations of n-alkane chains to systematically extract order parameters describing the slow, fundamental dynamics of the chain.
