Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering professor Clayton Radke has been elected the 2011 recipient of the Society of Petroleum Engineers John Franklin Carll Award.

The award will be presented during the SPE annual banquet of the society’s Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition that will take place Oct. 30 – Nov. 2 in Denver, CO.

John Franklin Carll was a geologist born in 1828 who developed many of the subsurface geological methods still in use today. The John Franklin Carll Award, established in 1956, recognizes contributions of technical application and professionalism in petroleum development and recovery.

Says Radke, “My work in this area deals with the fundamentals of pore-level phenomena including capillary hydrodynamics and interfacial behavior in confined spaces. I am gratified not only to receive peer recognition, but also to acknowledge my research group’s contributions and their impact in engineering application.”

Radke is the first member of the CBE department to win the Carll award.
