Dr. Sindee Simon's Biography
It is an exciting time to be a chemical engineer at Texas Tech. We are one of the top departments in the university with extremely productive faculty and great students, and we continue to strive to reach our vision – that of becoming the undergraduate chemical engineering department of choice in Texas and one of the top research and graduate chemical engineering departments in the nation. Both our students and our faculty continue to receive recognition for their excellence through receipt of a variety of awards, and the department as a whole improved its U.S. News and World Report ranking to 60th out of all chemical engineering programs in the country. We have recently hired National Academy of Engineering Member Dr. Chau-Chyun Chen, who comes to us from AspenTech and brings expertise in molecular thermodynamics and phase equilibrium to the department. We are also delighted to welcome Assistant Professor Dr. Wei Li who performs bioengineering and microfluidics research and Professor of Practice Chijuan Hu who will take responsibility for teaching and renovating our undergraduate laboratories, both of whom will start in the Fall.
