Posted on May 03, 2017

[Chaimongkol Saengow]Chaimongkol Saengow, a post-doctoral researcher in The Department of Chemical Engineering, has earned the 2017 Award for Best Graduate Student Paper Published in The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering.

“We were so surprised when we knew the result,” says Saengow, who is now a post-doctoral researcher at Queen’s. “This is an international collaboration between Queen’s and Shandong University in China, so I would like thank professor Wu who brought this up to me. I would also like to thank Professor Giacomin, of course. He is a good mentor and a good teacher.”

The paper, “Bubble Growth from First Principles,” explores the formation and control of bubbles in viscous fluids.

“It’s important for us to study this, for example, because it will help manufacturers to predict and control bubble formation in injection molding processes.”

The paper can be read from campus here.
