Floudas earns chemical engineering award
Posted November 29, 2001; 01:59 p.m.
Christodoulos Floudas, professor of chemical engineering , has received the Professional Progress Award for Outstanding Progress in Chemical Engineering. The prize is given annually by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers in recognition of outstanding progress in research by a member of the profession under 45 years of age.
Floudas was honored for his seminal contributions to research on the theory, methods and applications of deterministic global optimization in chemical process system engineering, computational chemistry and molecular biology. The author of two textbooks and the co-author of more than 100 scientific papers, he has applied the techniques of deterministic global optimization to the protein folding problem, which is widely regarded as one of the major scientific challenges in computational chemistry and structural biology.
