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.
Yannis Kevrekidis will receive the 2008 Computing in Chemical Engineering Award from the Computing and Systems Technology Division of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
The research team of Professors Robert Prud'homme, Yannis Kevrekidis and Athanassios Panagiotopoulos has created particles that can deliver medicine deep into the lungs or infiltrate cancer cells while leaving normal ones alone.
Professor Yannis G. Kevrekidis has been named the Pomeroy and Betty Perry Smith Professor of Engineering.
Yannis Kevrekidis, professor of Chemical Engineering and the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics, has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for research on "Equation-free Studies of Complex Systems" along with six other Princeton faculty.
