Three Cullen College chemical engineering Ph.D. students have returned from Denver, Co. where they were special guests at the 25th North American Meeting (NAM25) of the North American Catalysis Society. Sashank Kasiraju, who studies under the direction of Assistant Professor Lars Grabow, Wendy Lang, who studies under Mike Harold, chair of chemical and biomolecular engineering and Wei Qin, mentored by Jeff Rimer, Ernest J. and Barbara M.

Graduate Student Wins AIChE Travel Award for Biomass Research

Each year, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) presents travel awards to outstanding students from across the nation to present their research at the annual AIChE meeting. Sashank Kasiraju, a chemical and biomolecular engineering graduate student at the UH Cullen College of Engineering, is one of just 20 students to receive this honor from AIChE’s Catalysis and Reaction Engineering (CRE) Division this year.

Chemical Engineers' Paper Named Best of AIChE South Texas Section

Last year, a professor and student in the chemical and biomolecular engineering department at the UH Cullen College of Engineering published an article in Science outlining a surprising discovery about gold’s unexpected catalytic properties.

Two Engineering Professors Earn NSF CAREER Awards

Two professors in the Cullen College of Engineering at the University of Houston earned Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF) this year. Each received a five-year, $500,000 grant for integration of outstanding research and educational outreach.

UH Chemical Engineering Faculty Wins Department of Energy Early Career Award

Lars Grabow

Researchers across the world are looking into various sources of sustainable feedstock for energy and chemicals production with the hope that these cleaner sources will dramatically reduce our need for petroleum-based feedstock and lower our carbon footprint in the future.  One such renewable energy source is biomass derived from naturally-occurring raw materials such as wood and agricultural waste, which can be converted to biofuels and biochemicals.
