Dr Kim McAuley wins Fisher Award

In October 2017, the 67th annual Canadian Society for Chemical Engineers Conference awarded the prestigious D.G. Fisher Award to Dr. Kim McAuley. The award is described as being “presented to an individual who has made major contributions in the field of systems and control engineering while a resident of Canada.”

As a faculty member of the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at Queen’s University, Dr. McAuley took the opportunity to thank her graduate students for their work on the projects. Her excellence in research has long been recognized with her receiving such honours as the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and the Premier's Research Excellence Award.  

Sponsored by the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Alberta, Suncor Energy Foundation and Shell Canada Limited, the award has included top talent in the area of systems and control research including past winners associated with Queen’s University like Paul Nomikos and Tom Harris.

Best Graduate Student Paper - Chaimongkol Saengow

Another amazing member of the Department of Chemical Engineering, Dr. Chaimongkol Saengow is a post-doctoral researcher who won the Canadian Society of Chemical Engineering’s 2017 award for the Best Graduate Student Paper Published in The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering.

Given at the 67th annual Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering Conference in Edmonton this past October, Dr. Saengow accepted the award for his paper on “Bubble Growth from First Principles” that investigates bubble growth in fluids which was part of an international collaboration effort with Dr. Wu from Shandong University and Dr. Jeffrey Giacomin  from Queen’s University.

After completing his second doctoral degree at Queen’s University in Chemical Engineering, Dr. Saengow is currently pursuing his research at Queen’s in the area of polymer processing and on the physics of polymeric liquids while he works towards a position as an engineering professor.
