The Chemical Engineering Department held it’s annual Research Symposium on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 in the Galanti Lounge. Students under the guidance of CHE Faculty presented posters of their research – showcasing research that is taking place in the CHE department not only at the Graduate level but also at the Undergraduate level. Congratulations to […]
Twelve URI Chemical Engineering Students attended the 2017 AIChE Northeast Regional Student Meeting at Worcester Polytechnic Institute on March 25 & 26. Congratulations to all who participated and presented a poster! Congratulations to John Neilsen who finished in 2nd place – and to Michael Eggleston who finished in 3rd place.
The research that URI Chemical Engineering Assistant Professor Daniel Roxbury is conducting could lead to the invention of a wearable device that could detect a wide range of biomarkers that signal the start of diseases such as cancer.
Yuzi Zhang’s SEM image appears on the cover of the American Carbon Journal, in which her paper, “Towards reducing carbon content in silicon/carbon anodes for lithium ion batteries” was published in Carbon, Volume 112, February 2017 on pages 72-78. Conducting carbon is added to electrodes of lithium ion batteries (LIBs) to provide electrical conductivity. Because this carbon does […]
What if a wearable device, such as a wristwatch, could be used for real-time bio-imaging and bio-sensing for the purpose of detecting a wide range of biomarkers that signal the start of diseases such as cancer? The research that URI Chemical Engineering Assistant Professor Daniel Roxbury is conducting in his Nanobio Engineering Lab at URI […]
A group of 4 faculty, 8 graduate students and 13 undergraduates from the Chemical Engineering Department traveled to San Francisco, CA for the Annual AIChE Conference held November 13 – 18, 2017. Congratulations to Elisa Torrico Guzman who won 1st place in the Nanoscale Science & Engineering Forum poster competition and 1st place in the […]
Zachary Caron was a chemistry whiz working in private industry and eager to work on a project that could thwart terrorism when he met Chemical Engineering Professor Otto Gregory. Together, they’ve created a sensor that detects triacetone triperoxide, or TATP, the explosive terrorists used in bombings in Brussels, Paris, and London. (MS ’16)
