selected publications


courses taught

  • CHEN 2810 - Biology for Engineers
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2024
    Develops a basic understanding of the science of biology, including an introduction to the disciplines of biochemistry, cell organization, metabolism, genetics, genomics, molecular biology, recombinant DNA technology and evolution. Provides a basic introduction to several key techniques used in biological engineering laboratories. Uses examples of complex and creative structures engineered by natural processes.
  • CHEN 3210 - Chemical Engineering Heat Transfer
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Examines conservation and transfer of mass and thermal energy. Focuses on conduction and convection of heat in the context of chemical processes and heat exchangers. Addresses radiation. Also studies mass transfer rate processes, including diffusion, microscopic material balances, and correlations for mass transfer coefficients.
  • CHEN 4801 - Pharmaceutical Biotechnology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Spring 2021 / Spring 2022 / Fall 2022
    Focuses on the engineering needed to bring therapeutic products derived from living organisms (e.g., proteins, peptides, DNA, RNA) from the production plant to the patient. Covers the challenges of keeping these products "active" as they are stored, shipped, and administered to patients.
  • CHEN 4820 - Biochemical Separations
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022 / Fall 2023
    Lect. and lab. Presents purification methods, mass transfer coefficients, problems specific to biologicals, and scale-up of processes. Also covers chromatography, phase extraction, supercritical fluids, sedimentation, precipitation, electrophoresis, dialysis, affinity techniques, cell separation, application of separations to bioreactors, and comparison of batch and continuous processes.
  • CHEN 5919 - Special Topics in CHBE
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
    May be repeated up to 5 total credit hours.
