Professor Arup Chakraborty

Chakraborty elected to the NAE

Arup Chakraborty has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) for his accomplishments in applying theoretical chemistry to practical problems in immune system recognition, polymer interfaces, sensor technology, and catalysis.

Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made "important contributions to engineering theory and practice, including significant contributions to the literature of engineering theory and practice," and those who have demonstrated accomplishment in "the pioneering of new fields of engineering, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education."

Chakraborty is the Warren and Katharine Schlinger Distinguished Professor and Chair, Department of Chemical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, and Department Head of Computational and Theoretical Biology for LBNL.
