FEATURE STORY YUSHAN YAN ELECTED TO NATIONAL ACADEMY OF ENGINEERING
Yushan Yan, an expert in electrochemical systems and sustainability at UD’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, recognized for his work.
Yushan Yan, a University of Delaware engineering professor and expert in electrochemical engineering for sustainability, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering.
“The election of Yushan Yan to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer," UD President Dennis Assanis said. "I know the entire campus community joins me in extending our congratulations to Yushan for this with well-deserved recognition of his outstanding achievement. I am so proud of the impressive momentum of our faculty who continue to prove the very high standard of talent at the University of Delaware."
Yan marks the ninth current faculty member from the College of Engineering to receive this prestigious recognition, which he earned for “creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship in separation membranes and electrochemical reaction engineering, catalysis and materials.”
“This well-deserved recognition from the National Academy of Engineers speaks to the true impact and excellence of Yushan’s contributions to the field of sustainable chemical engineering and electrochemical systems,” said Dean Levi Thompson, who was elected to the NAE in 2021. “I’m incredibly proud and honored to be a colleague of talented engineers like Yushan. This tremendous recognition showcases how faculty, students and staff at the University and the College of Engineering are helping to make the world a better place.”
