Stuart Churchill Honored with Festschrift

Stuart Churchill, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has been honored with a Festscrift on the occasion of his 90th birthday in the August 2011 issue of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Research (Volume 50, Issue 15), a leading archival journal in chemical engineering.

The Festchrift notes, "Stuart's breadth extends far beyond that of most engineering science researchers. His enthusiasm for design, research and teaching has increasingly suggested interactions for us in recent years. Also, for the last 30 years, even in retirement, Stuart enthusiastically continues to advise one of our senior design groups. He understands the importance of teaching students how to translate engineering science principles into process and product designs that satisfy consumer needs and to seek designs that optimize profitability in the face of uncertainty."
