Faculty

Wayne State’s Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science faculty experts consistently break new ground in the field. For example, as director of the National Biofuels Energy Laboratory, Professor Simon Ng leads critical initiatives in alternative energy development, right here in Detroit. Assistant Professor Eranda Nikolla was one of 13 scholars from across the country to receive a 2016 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar award from the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, Inc. And Professor Howard Matthew was elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, comprised of the top 2 percent of medical and biological engineers in the country.
