OHIO chemical and biomolecular engineering senior recognized as leader at national symposium

Baylee Demuth | Mar 9, 2020

Chemical and biomolecular engineering senior Mahmoud Ramadan was one of 20 students selected from more than 300 applicants to attend the North Carolina State-organized conference “Future Leaders in Chemical Engineering: A National Award Symposium for Undergraduate Researchers” in October 2019.

Previously, Ramadan was selected as a 2019 Barry M. Goldwater Scholar, considered one of the most prestigious undergraduate STEM research awards in the nation, and received a 2019 Tau Beta Pi national scholarship.

The symposium invites the finest and brightest undergraduate researchers in the United States to present their work and be recognized for their achievements and potential as future leaders in chemical and biomolecular engineering.

Ramadan gave a short presentation on his research poster titled “Mitigating Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion of An Oilfield Biofilm Consortium on Carbon Steel in Hydrotest Using 2,2-Dibromo-3-nitrilopropionamide (DBNPA) Coupled with A Chemically Synthesized 14-mer Peptide” at the symposium. He worked on his research with chemical and biomolecular engineering PhD student Di Wang and  Professor Tingyue Gu.

“I would like to thank professor Tingyue Gu for his invaluable guidance and support, and Di Wang for his mentorship during my time in the group.” Ramadan said.

Ramadan is currently narrowing down his choices for graduate school where he will focus on reaction engineering research. He has been accepted to the University of Minnesota, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, California Institute of Technology, Princeton University, and Carnegie Mellon University.
