Our congratulations goes out to Peter Gilbert on his receipt of the very prestigious Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship. Peter came to the Department of Chemical Engineering in 2013 as a MASc student, and commenced PhD studies in 2015 upon completing his Master’s degree. He received the three year Vanier scholarship for his research in polymer rheology and processing. We in the Department are thrilled for Peter and proud to call him one of our own.
We are equally proud of our PhD student Hannah Dies, who received a Vanier Scholarship in 2015 for her cutting edge work in lab-on-a-chip diagnostics.

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.

Queen's Research Opportunities Fund awards 25 researchers, including our very own Laura Wells and Reza Nosrati, a chance to begin innovative projects and forge new collaborations with colleagues and scholars around the world.
Dr. Paul Nomikos, an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, is the winner of the 2016 D.G. Fisher Award. This award is presented to an individual who has made major contributions in the field of systems and control engineering while a resident of Canada. As an award winner, Dr. Nomikos will present a lecture at the CSChE Conference.
Dr. Greg Russell of the University of Canterbury will be conducting a seminar on April 7, 2016, entitled "Do We Really Understand the Kinetics of Radical Polymerization?"
CFI awarded over $1 million to six innovative Queen’s researchers, including our very own Dr. Laura Wells. Dr. Wells is addressing the needs for better treatments of ophthalmic diseases through the development of bioresponsive drug delivery systems (a system that releases drugs on a controlled basis) and novel materials that can improve medical device outcomes.
Dr. Heather Pilkington of First Key Consulting Inc. will be conducting a seminar on March 24, 2016, entitled "Trends and Opportunities in the Brewing Industry"
