NEW FACULTY LI-CHIANG LIN (PhD University of CaliforniaBerkeley), currently a research scientist at MIT, joins CBE this fall. His research to discover novel, energy-efficient and cost-effective materials for energy-related applications uses largescale computational screenings and molecular simulations. His methodology integrates multiscale computational techniques to achieve more accurate simulation predictions and more efficient screenings. Dr. Lin first published in 2012 with papers in Nature Materials and Nature Chemistry. Both papers have been cited over 100 times (per Google Scholar). To date, he has 32 peer-reviewed articles and his research has been featured on the covers of Angewandte Chemie, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, The Journal of Physical Chemistry C, and ChemPhysChem. Additional publications in high impact journals include Nature Communications (four papers), Nano Letters, Journal of the American Chemical Society (six papers), and Energy & Environmental Science. He also received several awards and fellowships such as the 2013 DOW Excellence in Teaching Award, Chevron Fellowships (2012-13), the 2012 AIChE Separations Division Graduate Student Research Award, and six Presidential Awards (top 5% of students) at National Taiwan University.

NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS KATELYN SWINDLEREILLY (PhD Washington University-St.Louis), most recently a senior scientist at Rochal Industries overseeing wound care and soft tissue regeneration products, begins a 25% tenuretrack post in CBE this fall. Her research focus is the biomimetic design of optimized biomaterials for tissue repair. She holds two patents and has been a sub-awardee PI on eight grants totalling over $5 million (NIH, NSF, and DOD).

TOM CLAUGUS ‘73: Lifetime Achievement Award

BHAVESH (BOB) PATEL ‘88: Distinguished Alumni Award

RICHARD SCHWARZ ‘73: Advisory Board Chair

The College of Engineering presented Thomas E. Claugus with the Lifetime Achievement Award for Leadership at its annual Alumni Awards Banquet last fall. Claugus is president and senior portfolio manager of GMT Capital, a hedge fund with $5 billion in assets. He is also the firm’s founder and majority shareholder.

LyondellBasell Chief Executive Officer Bhavesh (Bob) Patel was recognized with a Distinguished Alumni Award at the fall 2015 College of Engineering Alumni Awards banquet.

The CBE Advisory Board is re-organizing to create a more active board that can be better involved in the life and success of the department and chemical engineering program.

Patel is a board member for Junior Achievement of Southeast Texas and serves on the executive committee and the board of directors for the American Chemistry Council. He joined LyondellBasell, one of the world’s largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies, in 2010. Previously, he had been general manager at Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, Olefins and Natural Gas Liquids, where he had worked for over 20 years.

Richard Schwarz, a partner in Edgewater Capital Partners in Cleveland, Ohio, will chair the newlyformed board. Schwarz, who joined Edgewater in 2003, has over 40 years of experience in operations management, leveraged buyouts, entrepreneurship, and management consulting and sales. He holds an MBA from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University and is a Registered Professional Engineer in the state of Ohio.

In addition to his Ohio State ChemE degree, he obtained an MBA with high distinction from Harvard Business School. He received a Distinguished Alumnus Award from the College of Engineering in 2008.

Private investor and aviation enthusiast Edward Claugus (‘81) left a very special mark on the William G. Lowrie Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and the College of Engineering. His $14M estate gift provides 45 scholarships, an Innovation Fund, an endowed chair, and equipment/operating funds.

Kris Lakshmanan (‘86), Bill Lee (‘83) and Tom Heeb (‘83), pictured above with other classmates, surprised Professor Bob Brodkey by raising funds from other alumni to create the first-ever graduate scholarship, which they named in his honor. Working over several months, they exceeded their $50,000 goal by 100% when the fund topped $100,000 this past fall.

At a recent commemoration held for Ed, brother Tom Claugus (‘73) said, “I am sure Ed would be proud to see the scholarship recipients and the work that’s ongoing to further the mission of Ohio State. He would just be glowing to know he was supporting 45 students.” We are eternally grateful for Ed’s transformational gift, which provides CBE with a crucial foundation.

“It was easy,” said Kris Lakshmanan at last fall’s dinner celebrating Brodkey and the creation of the scholarship. “Nearly everyone we contacted wanted to participate. The first scholarship recipient, Kai Chen, was present at the dinner. Chen, who is at the top of his class, said “I would like to thank the professor and his students who made this happen. I feel very honored.”

COMMITTEE RAISES $17.5M+ FOR NEW KOFFOLT LABORATORIES Members of the Campaign for New Koffolt Laboratories met on campus for the Spring 2015 Grand Opening of the new building, marked by a chemical reaction ribbon-cutting which surprised and delighted attendees. Thanks to our many generous donors and the hard work of the Committee, the campaign exceeded its $17.5 million goal. Because you cared, over 1,000 of our currently enrolled students, the faculty who serve them, and the alumni who return to visit are benefiting from the vast improvement and opportunities created from having these beautiful, state-of-the-art facilities. - 29 -


NEW KOFFOLT LABORATORIES THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIFTS A chemical engineering education is a precious commodity which requires an investiment of time, effort, and resources, the fruit of which enables chemical engineers to individually and collectively make innovative contributions to society. The impact is enormous - whether it is devising more cost-efficient processes or producing systems which can transform the way in which we live, the work of every chemical engineer benefits society and even the world in some way. This is why it is important that we support the education of future chemical engineers. The department is fortunate to have loyal alumni and donors who have given generously over many years. Declining state funding means that the cost of tuition only partially covers today’s expenses, and it is no longer possible for students to work their way through school and emerge debt-free. Thus, the need for support is ongoing. Your support literally creates opportunities for chemical engineering students to succeed, and it is crucial to the continuing health of CBE and the betterment of the world at large. Having the new Koffolt Laboratories is a key element in the formula for this ongoing success, thanks to our donors. What we have created in New Koffolt Laboratories is much more than just a building. It is our home for the lifelong learning, relationships, and innovations that are born and developed here. Thank you for sharing in our vision of a better future for all!

IN THEIR OWN WORDS “Students love the Dow Student Lounge, which is a great space for student collaboration. The multi-media workstations provide a great space for completing unit ops reports. The large screen simplifies the editing process and allows students to work more efficiently. It’s also just a great place to work on homework and for TAs and students to come together to improve the learning experience.” -Hussein B Alkhatib AIChE Co-President, Class of 2016.

"It is such a joy to work in a building where we can conduct cutting-edge research with the most modern safety standards and research capabilities, and where our undergraduate students feel at home. It is such a joy to see our students at every corner of the building, any time of day, working, reading, writing, interacting with each other or with faculty, or taking a break. What could be better than providing such a feeling of belonging to our students?" -Umit Ozkan College of Engineering Distinguished Professor. See more quotes on the 2015 Annual Report website:


SCHOLARSHIPS We thank the corporations and alumni who have established scholarships in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, several of which honor other individuals. Scholarship funding for 2015 totalled $268,100, with 155 students receiving an average of $1,729, compared to $1,242 the previous year. Please visit the 2015 Annual Report online at for the scholarship recipient list.
