Professor Daugulis Named a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering

Congratulations goes out to Dr. Andrew Daugulis, Queen’s University Chemical Engineering professor and Queen’s Research Chair in Biochemical and Cell Culture Engineering, who has been named a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, one of the highest professional honours accorded to engineers in Canada.  

Founded in 1987, the Canadian Academy of Engineering is an independent, self-governing and non-profit organization established to allow Canada’s most distinguished and experienced engineers the opportunity to provide strategic advice on matters of critical importance. Its membership comprises many of the country’s most accomplished engineers, who are elected by their peers in recognition of their dedication to the application of science and engineering principles.

As a Professor Emiritus in the Department of Chemical Engineering, Dr. Daugulis has continued his very important research which focuses on industrial biotechnology – using microorganisms and biological systems in a wide range of commercial applications such as biopharmaceuticals or industrial bioprocesses. His research also touches on the field of environmental engineering, which uses biological systems to degrade toxic compounds.
