Professor Arthi Jayaraman from the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Delaware is the winner of the 2021 CoMSEF Impact Award. She is cited “for outstanding developments in modeling, theory, and simulation of polymer blends, nanocomposites, solutions, and biomaterials critical to the engineering design of advanced materials.” Prior to joining the faculty at Delaware in 2019, Arthi was a professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder. She received her PhD from North Carolina State University in 2006 with Carol Hall. For her post-doctoral research, she worked with Kenneth Schweizer in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign. She was also the winner of the inaugural CoMSEF Young Investigator Award for Modeling and Simulation in 2013. Arthi will deliver a presentation describing her research during the CoMSEF Plenary Session at the 2021 AIChE Annual Meeting. The CoMSEF Impact Award is given annually to a CoMSEF member who is within 15 years of completion of their highest degree.
