Dimitrios Zarkadas, Kearny, who received his doctorate in chemical engineering earlier this year from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), will receive an award Nov. 2, 2005, from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). The organization will honor Zarkadas for a paper he wrote as a doctoral student about process development. The presentation will take place at the organization’s annual meeting in Cincinnati.
Zarkadas now works for Schering-Plough Research Institute, Union, in the chemical development division. Kamalesh Sirkar, PhD, distinguished professor in the department of chemical engineering at NJIT, helped Zarkadas with his dissertation. Last year, Zarkadas received another award from AIChE for his research work on crystallization.
“Our department is proud of the work of its students and alumni,” said Basil Baltzis, PhD, professor and chair of the Otto H. York Department of Chemical Engineering at NJIT. “Their well-deserved successes make us, happy, humbled and thankful for having had the opportunity to work with such talented individuals. I congratulate Dimitri and his advisor, Professor Sirkar.”
Zarkadas received his undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from the Aristotle University, Greece.
