Chemical Engineering Students Enjoy Success at CSESC

Nicole Devlin, a chemical engineering PhD student, received first place in the poster session at the 2014 Computational Science and Engineering Student Conference (CSESC) at Purdue University, which took place in April. Nicole is advised by professor Michael Harris and her focus is on computation models of evaporating droplets.

At the same conference, Andy Koswara, also a chemical engineering PhD student, earned first place for his oral presentation on “Robust Control of Quantum Dynamics".

CSESC is a conference entirely organized and run by students. It was founded by the Purdue chapter of the Student Chapter of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM@Purdue). CSESC is an opportunity for students to practice their teamwork skills, network with other researchers who work in computational science and present their current research. Bradley Ridder, another chemical engineering graduate student, serves as the 2014 SIAM@Purdue President and was part of the CESC 2014 organizing committee.
