Biographical Perspectives of Stuart W. Churchill

These perspectives evolved over 54 years with Stuart, beginning in 1962, as a graduate student, and transitioning to a faculty colleague and friend. They are illustrated with written sources (including his oral history), recollections of discussions, pictures, videos, and favorite anecdotes. Major aspects of Stuart's scientific, engineering, and professional achievements are highlighted — including his creative approaches to teaching and research, his colorful lifestyle, his great knowledge of history, his love of collegiate (and other) athletics, music, fine wines, travel, and so on.

Warren D. Seider is Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He received a Ph.D. degree in 1966 from the University of Michigan, working with Prof. Stuart W. Churchill on confined jet mixing in the entrance of a tubular reactor, and moved with Prof. Churchill to UPenn in 1967. He has contributed to the fields of process analysis, simulation, design, and control. He is recognized for research contributions in phase and chemical equilibria, azeotropic distillation, heat and power integration, Czochralski crystallization, algae growth to biofuels, nonlinear control, and safety and risk analysis. He has authored or coauthored over 120 journal articles and authored or edited seven books.
