The Inaugural Costel Denson Distinguished Lecture to Feature Chemical Engineer Babatunde A. Ogunnaike

The lecture will begin at 2:30 pm on March 20 in the Governor’s Suite of Iacocca Hall.

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering will welcome Babatunde A. Ogunnaike, the William L. Friend Chair of Chemical Engineering at the University of Delaware, as the inaugural speaker for its Costel Denson Distinguished Lecture Series.The lecture will begin at 2:30 pm on March 20 in the Governor’s Suite of Iacocca Hall. A reception will follow.

Ogunnaike, a former dean of the University of Delaware’s College of Engineering and a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, will discuss the “future of engineering in medicine.”

The Costel Denson Distinguished Lecture Series is named in honor of Costel “Cos” Denson ’56 ’15H, a chemical engineering alumnus who was the first African American graduate of Lehigh. Denson became a well-known expert in polymer engineering and fluid mechanics.
