Kothare named chair of ChE

In July, professor Mayuresh Kothare will take over as the chair of chemical engineering at Lehigh. Dr. Kothare recently became one of only two chemical engineers to be named as a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. His research includes constrained and optimal predictive control theory, embedded control of biomedical systems, neuroengineering, and closed loop neuroprosthetic systems. In this role, Kothare will be succeeding professor Anthony McHugh, who will be stepping down from the position he has held for nine years to return to the faculty.
