In November 2015, the national AIChE student conference was held in Salt Lake City Utah. Lafayette College sent seven students to participate in the conference – several of which participated in the student poster competition to present his/her research. Out of 386 total posters from highly regarded institutions in the U.S and select international schools, four Lafayette students were placed highly in their respective research categories.
Sean McSherry ’17 finished second in the Sustainability subsection. Advisors: Ashley Cramer and Dr. Phil Brunner
Aaliyah Shodeinde ’17 finished first in the Food, Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology subsection. Advisor: Chris Anderson
Cara Abecunas ’17 finished first in the Materials Engineering and Sciences subsection. Advisors: Lauren Anderson and Chris Anderson
Rachel Elias ’17 finished first in Fuels, Petrochemicals and Energy subsection. Additionally, this subsection offers overall prizes and Rachel finished first in Fuels, winning $500 and a plaque. Advisors: Lindsay Soh and Michael Senra
This is a true testament to the quality and diversity of Lafayette College’s research endeavors in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Each of the students who participated in the poster session is thankful for the carefully fostered relationships shared with the research advisors and professors in the department.
