On June 18, 2021, Nicole Tratnik presented a talk on the effect of amylose and amylopectin content on epoxidation and adhesion properties at the 25th Annual ACS Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference.
UTM will host an online screening of the Tribeca Film Festival selected film, Picture a Scientist.
“PICTURE A SCIENTIST chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we encounter scientific luminaries – including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists – who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.”
Following the film, a panel of four researchers including Professor Ning Yan will have a discussion. Register online for the links for the viewing and discussion here.
This year Professor Ning Yan was selected as the recipient of the 2021 Bill Burgess Teacher of the Year Award for Small Classes by the Department’s Teaching Effectiveness Committee. This award aims to recognize the efforts and excellence in teaching within ChemEng.
The award was announced during the virtual awards celebration Friday April 9, 2021.The plaque for this award lives on the second floor of the Wallberg Building where Professor Ning Yan’s name will be added.
Professor Ning Yan has been elected Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada for her contributions to engineering and service to the profession and society.
