    ChBE Seminar Series: Dean Julio Ottino

    McCormick-Chemical and Biological Engineering

    EVENT DETAILSmore info

    Northwestern's own Dean Julio Ottino

    Title:
    Chemical Engineering in the Broader Engineering Ecosystem: A Personal View

    Abstract:
    “when a field of science is represented by a sphere, intellectual growth occurs not at the center but at the border, where it is in contact with other scientific areas…the sphere representing a particular field of science is in fact a bubble, and those inside the bubble tend to associate almost exclusively among themselves” - JMP 2015

    Disciplines grow and invariably they reach crises; every science and engineering discipline goes through these cycles. Having a broader view – looking simultaneously backward and forward – helps put things in perspective. Dean Julio M. Ottino shares his views on these issues, using his own experiences and work as a point of departure, discussing how history can shape ideas and how basic ideas can expand into new domains.

    Bio:
    Dr. Julio M. Ottino is dean of the Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science at Northwestern University and holds the titles of Distinguished Robert R. McCormick Institute Professor and Walter P. Murphy Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering. Previously, he was chair of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and founding co-director of NICO, the Northwestern Institute for Complex Systems, run jointly by McCormick and the Kellogg School of Management. Ottino received his PhD in chemical engineering at the University of Minnesota and held positions at UMass/Amherst and chaired and senior appointments at Caltech and Stanford.

    Ottino’s research has appeared on the covers of Nature, Science, Scientific American, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA, and other publications and has impacted fields as diverse as fluid dynamics, granular dynamics, microfluidics, geophysical sciences, and nonlinear dynamics and chaos. A recipient of many awards in the field, Ottino was listed by AIChE as one of the “One Hundred Engineers of the Modern Era" (Post WWII) and was awarded the Fluid Dynamics Prize from the American Physical Society. In 2017, he was awarded the Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education from the National Academy of Engineering, regarded as the highest award for engineering education. He is a member of both the National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
