- Mansi Shah, a chemical engineering graduate student, has received a 2016 American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Separations Division Graduate Student Research Award. This highly competitive award seeks to recognize outstanding graduate students conducting research in various chemical engineering separation processes such as in distillation and absorption, crystallization and evaporation, extraction, membrane-based separations, adsorption and ion exchange, fluid-particle separations, and bioseparations. Shah's research, with advisors Michael Tsapatsis and Ilja Siepmann, identified promising zeolite structures that will be instrumental in the design of next-generation gas sweetening technologies. This research was recently published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition and also featured as a Frontispiece. As an award recipient, Shah will receive a monetary stipend and plaque at the Separations Division’s Awards Dinner at the AIChE Annual Meeting in San Francisco in November 2016.
