Simon Selected to Receive SPE Research/Engineering Technology Award

Sindee Simon, Whitacre department chair and Horn Professor of chemical engineering, has been selected to receive the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) 2014 Research/Engineering Technology award for research and technology developments in polymers and polymer composites and for her pioneering contributions in thermal analysis of polymers. She will accept the award at the Annual Technical Conference in April.

This award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions in the fields of polymeric material development, processing, design, the innovative application of polymer engineering principles, and/or the fundamental understanding of the science of polymeric materials and their behavior (creation of new polymer structures, characterization and understanding of polymer structures, properties, performance and processing).
