Mah Memorial Lectures

The Richard S. H. Mah Lectures on Modeling and Computation in Chemical and Biological Engineering have been established through the generosity of the Mah family to honor the memory of Richard S. H. Mah and his contributions to Northwestern University, its Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, and the profession of chemical engineering. In particular, the lectures are meant to honor Mah's role as a champion of introducing digital computing into modern chemical engineering.

Each year a recognized leader in the field is invited to address topics that will cover diverse applications within the broad area of modeling and computation in chemical and biological engineering and will also appeal to individuals working in a wide range of disciplines.
