The Distinguished Lecture Series is an annual series which features some of the most dynamic leaders of industry and academia. Initiated in Fall 2000, the series has proven to be a valuable forum to illustrate the diversity of applications and specialties within chemical engineering and to provide our students with the opportunity to interact with leading engineers, researchers, and educators.
