Jun Kuang, fourth-year graduate student in chemical and biomolecular engineering, received second place in Ph.D. section of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Student Paper Contest for the Gulf Coast region.
“It was a nice opportunity to interact with people in petroleum engineering,” he said. “I felt great presenting my work and exchanging ideas with judges and students from different universities. I hope more students from Rice can participate in this annual event.”
Four engineering alumni, including chemical engineers David Gibbs, Priya Prasad and Teddy Bucher, have been honored by the Association of Rice Alumni (ARA) for their contributions to Rice. They were recognized at a dinner held May 12 at the River Oaks Country Club.
