Last summer, the Department of Chemical Engineering hosted its first "Distinguished Young Scholars Summer Seminar Series." Eight early-career scientists were selected from 90 national applicants, and came to the UW to present their research. The event was so successful, it's back for its second year. Seven preeminent postdoctoral researchers and graduate students have been chosen to participate in this summer's series. Below is a list of the seminar speakers, their home institution, and their presentation title and abstract.
Seminars start at 4 p.m. in PAA A102, with a social time to follow the seminar in the Benson Hall lobby.
