CHBE alumnus Susan Daniel talks about her experience at Lehigh with Prof. Manoj Chaudhury

CHBE alumnus Dr. Susan Daniel ((BS (1999), MS(2001), PhD(2005) recently discussed the impact that her Lehigh education has had on her independent career as a faculty member in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Cornell. In an interview with Cornell's engineering staff writer, Susan credited her experiences with her advisor, Professor Manoj Chaudhury at Lehigh for stimulating her interest in engineering that ultimately opened many doors for her to pursue new areas of inquiry in her own research.

Excerpts from this interview and conversation can be found in the Related Content section below.

Dr. Daniel received all three degrees in chemical engineering from Lehigh, completing her PhD under the supervision of Professor Manoj Chaudhury, the Franklin Howes Jr. Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Lehigh. Daniel’s research focuses on the biological physics of supported lipid bilayers and on their applications as model biological membranes for: (a) sorting, extracting, and compartmentalizing membrane species; (b) establishing protein structure-function relationships; and (c) characterizing lipid-protein interactions.

In 2012, Daniel was the recipient of both the 2012 NSF CAREER award for her early promise and innovative contributions, as well at the Denton Emerging Leader Award, presented to junior faculty members "pursuing high-quality research in any field of engineering or physical sciences, while demonstrating a significant leadership capability and contributing significantly to promote diversity in his/her environment."
