The UC Santa Barbara Department of Chemical Engineering hosted the fourth annual “Duncan & Suzanne Mellichamp Emerging Leader Lecture” on October 15th, 2019, at the Engineering Sciences Building 1001, with a reception following in the ESB Courtyard.
Associate Professor Yuriy Román-Leshkov from MIT gave a presentation on his research titled ‘Molecular engineering of catalytic interfaces: Towards improved stability for earth-abundant catalysts’.
The Mellichamp Emerging Leader Lecture features up and coming researchers in a wide variety of Chemical Engineering disciplines supported by the generous endowment.
In 2015, Duncan & Suzanne Mellichamp generously endowed a new lecture series in the Department of Chemical Engineering to highlight up and coming Chemical Engineers.
