ResearchAreas of Research
The ability to integrate knowledge over a broad range of length scales and the detailed knowledge of fundamental physics, chemistry, and biology endows chemical engineers with the ideal training for undertaking pioneering research at the boundaries of traditional disciplines.
Our faculty members' research interests lie at the forefront of chemical engineering research. In these areas, our faculty members strive to seamlessly integrate experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches. The diversity and reach of our research is strengthened by enduring collaborations with departments, as well as our partnerships with research centers both in and outside of Northwestern University.
