Assistant Professor Michelle Calabrese among AIChE 35 Under 35 Award recipients

Assistant Professor Michelle Calabrese is among 35 recipients of the 2023 American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) 35 Under 35 Award. The award recognizes chemical engineering professionals who have made great contributions to the field and to AIChE. The recipients were selected for their achievements and contributions in one of seven different categories: bioengineering, chemicals and materials, education and outreach, energy and environment, innovation and entrepreneurship, leadership, and safety. Calabrese was honored for her contributions in the chemicals and materials category. Her research group employs rheology, soft matter physics, and polymer and nanoparticle synthesis to address a range of fundamental and applied problems in polymer and soft materials engineering. She hopes her research group will be recognized both for their scientific contributions and their efforts to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
All winners will be formally recognized and celebrated during an awards reception at the 2023 AIChE Annual Meeting in Orlando in November. In addition, each awardee will receive a cash prize of $500, have their profiles highlighted throughout AIChE and the chemical engineering community, and receive complimentary AIChE membership for 2024.
Congratulations Michelle!
