One of the Cullen College of Engineering’s chemical and biomolecular engineering students took the college’s tradition of excellence overseas this summer, winning the Best Poster Award at the International Summer School in Denmark.

Sashank Kasiraju is a third year graduate student, and his poster was entitled “Hydrodeoxygenation of furan vs. hydrodesulfurization of thiophene: A first principles investigation.”

According to Lars Grabow, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and Kasiraju’s advisor, the summer school is attended by students and postdoctoral researchers from “the best theoretical groups in the world,” and the award is quite prestigious, particularly for early graduate students.
