Mario Eden, department chair and Joe T. and Billie Carole McMillan professor in Auburn University’s Department of Chemical Engineering, has been recognized with the 2014 Outstanding Young Researcher national award from the Computing and Systems Technology (CAST) division of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). 

The annual honor is given to an individual under 40 who has made outstanding and significant contributions to chemical engineering computing and systems technology.

“This highly coveted award points to Mario as one of our brightest and most talented faculty, not only within the College of Engineering, but beyond,” said Christopher B. Roberts, dean of engineering. “His research demonstrates how he is impacting and changing the field of chemical engineering, and I am proud of this significant and well-deserved recognition.”

The award, sponsored by Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. will be presented in November at the CAST division banquet at the AIChE annual meeting in Atlanta.
