(Shirts, Michael R - 2020) -- Computational Molecular Science & Engineering Forum (CoMSEF)/CoMSEF Impact Award
Award or Honor Receipt
Associate Professor Michael Shirts is the recipient of the 2020 Computational Molecular Science & Engineering Forum Impact Award. This is an annual award given out by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers that recognizes mid-career researchers working in computational molecular science and engineering across academia, industry or government. Shirts will formally receive the award during the virtual AIChE 2020 Annual Meeting in November. He will also deliver an invited talk at the CoMSEF plenary session on his efforts to make molecular modeling as useful as possible in chemical engineering research and how others can work toward this end. Glenn L. Murphy Endowed Professor Daniel Schwartz prepared the nomination for this prestigious award. CoMSEF Impact Award winners receive a plaque commemorating their accomplishment and an honorarium. The AIChE 2020 Annual Meeting will be held online Nov. 16-20.
