4th North American Symposium on Chemical Reaction Engineering
The 2019 Rutherford Aris Award recognizes outstanding contributions in experimental and/or theoretical reaction engineering research of investigators in early stages of their career. The recipient must be less than 40 years of age at the end of the calendar year in which the award is presented. The Aris Award is generously supported by a grant from the UOP, L.L.C., a Honeywell Company. The award will be presented at ISCRE 24. It consists of a plaque, an honorarium of $3,000, and up to $2,000 in travel funds to present at NASCRE 4.
The ISCRE Board is pleased to announce that Professor Yuriy Román-Leshkov of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has been selected as the winner of the Aris award, from a pool of 10 outstanding candidates
Prof. Román-Leshkov was nominated “For innovative advances in heterogeneous catalysis and processes for renewable energy applications". Professor Román-Leshkov’s contributions to advancing knowledge in the areas of reaction engineering and heterogeneous catalysis are made evident by the 60+ papers that have been published from his group at MIT over the last 8 years as well as the fact that his work has been cited over 9000 times in that same time period.
