The 19th Annual GRACE Symposium was held at the Reitz Grand Ballroom on Thursday, April 12.
The symposium is a one-day research showcase where chemical engineering Ph.D., M.S., and M.E. students have the opportunity to present their research in a conference style format (presentation or poster) to their peers and a panel of judges. In addition, the symposium had keynote presentations delivered by Prof. Christopher Batich, from Materials Science and Engineering, and Prof. Lisa McElwee-White, Chair of Chemistry.
“We are really grateful to all the keynote speakers and judges for their time, input and feedback on all the talks and posters,” said Mythreyi Unni, GRACE Academic Chair and symposium planner.
We’d like to thank Mike Nazareth, the administrative staff, and all the student volunteers without whom this event would not have been possible, says Unni.
GRACE also appreciates the efforts and dedication of all the participants and extends congratulations to the winners.
