Amish Patel promoted to Associate Professor with tenure of CBE
Congratulations to Professor Amish Patel who was promoted to Associate Professor, with tenure, in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, effective July 1, 2019.
Professor Patel’s research strives to achieve a molecular-level understanding of solvation and transport in aqueous and polymeric systems, with applications ranging from the prediction of protein interactions to the design of advanced materials for water purification and energy storage. His group combines principles of statistical mechanics and liquid state theory with state-of-the-art molecular modeling and atomistic simulation techniques to study these biological, nanoscopic and polymeric systems.
Tenured faculty at Penn Engineering demonstrate teaching excellence and international leadership in their fields of study and research collaborations.
