Kevrekidis Elected AIChE Fellow

May 24, 2016

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 and the applied and computational mathematics, physics, and chemistry communities.” 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.  Kevrekidis will be recognized at this year’s AIChE Annual Meeting in San Francisco, at the Fellows Breakfast on November 15.
