Dr. Hall Selected to Receive the AIChE 2015 Founders Award

carol-hallDr. Carol Hall has been selected to receive the 2015 Founders Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Field of Chemical Engineering from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).  Per the AIChE, "The award is presented to a member of AIChE who has had an important impact on chemical engineering and whose achievements, either specific or general, have advanced this profession in any of its aspects. The recipient should have a long and distinguished record of service to the profession, including both technical and professional activities."

Dr. Hall is internationally known for her contributions to the field of molecular theory, modeling and simulation. Her primary tools in this effort are statistical thermodynamics, which allows estimation of thermophysical properties from knowledge of intermolecular forces, and computer simulation, which permits the visualization of systems on a molecular level.

These techniques are used to model the self assembly of soft materials including polymers, colloids, and surfactants, proteins whose aggregation is implicated in Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases, and DNA with particular focus on hybridization. She has been a leader in several associated research areas, including phase separation in colloidal suspensions, and equations of state for alkanes and polymers.

Among many other honors and awards, Dr. Hall is the the Camille Dreyfus Distinguished University Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and a member of the National Academy of Engineering.

Congratulations to Dr. Hall for this prestigious award!
