College of Engineering | August 26, 2019
Edward J. Maginn, the Dorini Family Professor of Energy Studies and chair of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in the College of Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, has been named a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).
Nominated by peers and elected by the AIChE Board of Directors, Fellow is the highest grade of membership in the organization, which boasts over 60,000 members across more than 110 countries. Each Fellow must have attained a minimum of 25 years of experience, demonstrated significant service to the profession of chemical engineering, and been a member of the organization for at least 10 years.
Maginn, who is also a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, was recognized for his research, which focuses on the development and application of molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulation methods to study the thermodynamic and transport properties of materials. The information gained as a result of this work — understanding how chemical composition and structure controls the properties of fluids and solids — allows Maginn and his team to partner with experimental groups in the development of new materials that are useful in applications ranging from energy storage to chemical separations.
