Event Date: February 18, 2019
(February 18, 2019) The Center for Innovative and Strategic Transformation of Alkane Resources (CISTAR) congratulates Professor Linda Broadbelt, Sarah Rebecca Roland Professor of chemical and biological engineering at Northwestern University and CISTAR Thrust leader, as she has been elected to National Academy of Engineering (NAE).
Induction to the NAE is one of the highest professional distinctions in engineering. Broadbelt was recognized for her “contributions to complex kinetic modeling, particularly for understanding the pathways by which hydrocarbons and polymers undergo pyrolysis,” according to the NAE.
Broadbelt’s impressive list of academic achievements, as listed in a press release from Northwestern University include, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, and an E.V. Murphree Award in Industrial and Engineering Chemistry from the American Chemical Society in addition to being a Fellow of AIChE and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She also received the R.H. Wilhelm Award from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers in 2018.
