Chemical Engineering seniors win honors at the David and Lorraine Freed Undergraduate Research Symposium

 

A total of 47 student engineers from Lehigh University and Lafayette College presented the best in undergraduate research on Wednesday, March 30, at Lehigh University's STEPS Building in Bethlehem, PA. The rivalry between Lehigh and Lafayette was on display again, with eight teams from the Easton, Pennsylvania college in the 2016 competition.

At the recently completed undergraduate research symposium hosted by Lehigh Engineering, the following Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering students won honors for their research posters:

(1) Kaylynn Johnson, senior in CHE. Second runner up prize of $800 for her project entitled "Dynamics of Bats Populations: Migration and Ebola Outbreaks.", which was supervised by Dr. Javier Buceta, Associate Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.

(2) Patrick Barry and Xu Yan, seniors in CHE. Honorable mention for their project entitled "Ethanol conversion to 1,3-Butadiene" under the supervision of Dr. Israel Wachs, Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.

We would like to congratulate all of the students who participated in this event.
