ChE Wave is the newsletter for the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Tulane University. It was started in the spring of 1995 to provide information of interest to Tulane Chemical Engineering alumni and friends.
John Y. Walz, BS ’82 and former Tulane chemical engineering faculty member is now the 10th dean of the University of Kentucky, College of Engineering.
In his welcome letter, Walz, who received his doctoral degree from Carnegie Mellon University in 1992, mentions “a world-class faculty, a growing, talented student body and a sought-after alumni base” as aspects of the college that have him “energized about the future.”
In a recent article, Walz said he was drawn to the University of Kentucky because of the opportunities to collaborate with the medical school, dental school and pharmacy school which are located in close proximity to the College of Engineering.
Virginia A. Davis (MSE ’93), an associate professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering in Auburn University’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, is among 85 researchers named by President Barack Obama to receive the prestigious Presidential Early Career for Scientists and Engineers Award, the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on early-career researchers.
Davis, who earned a doctoral degree in chemical and biomolecular engineering from Rice University in 2006, joins 18 other National Science Foundation recipients of the 2010 PECASE Award.
Davis is recognized for innovative research to advance the understanding of nanomaterials as well as their dispersion, microstructure, processing and properties on a macro scale. She was also honored for engaging in outreach activities involving K-12 students from underrepresented groups.
