Dr. Ng:

Dr. Nga Lee (Sally) Ng is an associate professor in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering and the School of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She earned her doctorate in Chemical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology and was a postdoctoral scientist at Aerodyne Research Inc.  Dr. Ng’s research focuses on the understanding of the chemical mechanisms of atmospheric particulate matter (PM) formation as well as their effects on human health. Dr. Ng’s research contribution has also been recognized by the Sheldon K. Friedlander Award and the Kenneth T. Whitby Award from the American Association for Aerosol Research, the EPA Early Career Award, the Health Effects Institute Walter A. Rosenblith New Investigator Award, and the NSF CAREER Award.

Ifayoyinsola Ibikunle:

Ifayoyinsola (Yoyin) is a Chemical Engineering PhD student conducting research in the Athanasios Nenes group where she investigates the impacts of atmospheric aerosol chemistry on human & ecosystem health. Before GaTech, she obtained her BS in Chemical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. In addition to being involved in the Exxon-Mobil Success Program, she also serves as the Programs chair for the GaTech NSBE chapter.  Her personal life goal is to use her education and knowledge from previous experiences to help expose underrepresented minorities to available opportunities.

3.       Coffee with Jeremy from 4:00- 5:00 in ES&T (TBD, within Georgia Tech campus). Signup here.

Dr. Feaster’s experiences should make content for an interesting seminar and insightful discussions. He has degrees from Georgia Tech and Stanford, which is evidence of his academic excellence. In addition to doing research in a National lab, he started a foundation which has reached many middle and high school students. He is also the first one in his family to attend graduate school.  Below is an expanded version of this excerpt.

Dr. Jeremy Feaster:

"Dr. Jeremy T. Feaster is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Materials Science Division at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His research focuses on utilizing additive manufacturing processes for designing electrochemical reactors and catalysts to convert CO2 to high value products. A Charlotte, N.C. native, Jeremy is the first in his family to attend graduate school. Dr. Feaster earned his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University in 2017 after completing his B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech in 2012. A proponent of uplifting communities of color, he started the Jeremy T. Feaster Foundation in 2012, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has reached hundreds of middle and high school students across the U.S. and awarded over $2,500 in scholarships to students of color in the Atlanta area."

Success Lunch

You are invited to attend a lunch from the Success Lunch Series, as organized by the ExxonMobil Success Program. These lunches bring a ChBE professional and a small group of students together in a casual setting to discuss career paths and share insight.

On Wednesday 9/12th  from 11:30-12:30  we will be having our first lunch of this semester’s Lunch Series. The lunch will take place at Ferst Place from 11:30 am  to 12:30 pm, and we will be joined by Dr. Paravastu and Juan Mena. If you would like to attend, please sign up by following this link.

If you would like to learn more about Dr. Paravastu or Juan Mena, below are short bios:

Anant K. Paravastu is a chemical engineer by training, with degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (S.B., 1998) and University of California Berkeley (Ph.D, 2004).  At Berkeley, his Ph.D. research was on optically pumped NMR (advisor: Jeffrey A. Reimer), which is the use of laser excitation to enhance NMR signal strengths in semiconductors.  After completing his education, Dr. Paravastu worked as a postdoctoral research fellow (under Robert Tycko) at the Laboratory of Chemical Physics at the National Institutes of Health, where he employed solid-state NMR to probe the molecular structures of amyloid fibrils (nanostructured protein aggregates) of the Alzheimer’s amyloid-β peptide.  Paravastu started his career as a principal investigator at Florida State University and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in 2008.  His research group maintains an interest in understanding mechanisms of protein aggregation, expanding the capabilities of NMR techniques to address smaller “oligomeric” protein aggregates, and analyzing the structures of designer assembling peptides.  He joined the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in 2015.

Juan L. Mena is a chemical engineering PhD student. He is an international student from the Dominican Republic. He earned his BS from Michigan State University. As a graduate student in the Prausnitz Lab, he works in the development of microneedle-based devices for diagnostic applications. He has been part of various on-campus student groups and committees, such as the ChBE Graduate Research Symposium organizing team, the and the Student Alumni Association. He enjoys helping younger students with their resumes and their networking skills. When he is not in the lab or volunteering in student group activity, he enjoys playing intramural sports (especially volleyball and basketball).
