“I am honored and grateful for this recognition, especially because it comes from both the American Institute of Chemical Engineering and the Interamerican Confederation of Chemical Engineering, representing collaboration between Chemical Engineers in the USA and the rest of the Americas,” says Rinaldi-Ramos.
Rinaldi-Ramos’ talk is titled, Response of Magnetic Nanoparticles to Time Varying Magnetic Fields: Ferrohydrodynamics, Nanoscale Thermal Therapy, and Magnetic Particle Imaging, and will review fundamental and applied research by his group over the past decade.
This lecture was jointly established, in 2008, in memory of James Y. Oldshue by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and the Interamerican Confederation of Chemical Engineering (CIIQ/IACChE). Jim Oldshue was an important leader and supporter of the CIIQ/IACChE. He was President of the AIChE in 1979 and President of the CIIQ/IACChE in 1995. Jim was a recipient of the prestigious Víctor Márquez award in 1983, which is conferred by the CIIQ/IACChE. Jim was an ambassador of the profession who visited more than 100 countries. It is envisioned that this lecture provide a global perspective of a specific contingent topic. The Oldshue Lecture alternates between the AIChE Annual Meetings and the Interamerican Congresses, which take place every two years.
