Randall Q. Snurr is the John G. Searle Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Northwestern University. He holds BSE and PhD degrees in chemical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California, Berkeley, respectively, and performed post-doctoral research at the University of Leipzig supported by a fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Other honors include the Institute Award for Excellence in Industrial Gases Technology from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the Leibniz professorship at the University of Leipzig, and a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation. He was named a Highly Cited Researcher for the period 2002-2012 by Thomson Reuters. He was a Senior Editor of the Journal of Physical Chemistry and currently serves on the editorial boards of several journals. His research interests include development of new nanoporous materials for energy and environmental applications, molecular simulation, adsorption separations, diffusion in nanoporous materials, and catalysis.Claire S. Adjiman is Professor of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. She holds an MEng from Imperial College and a PhD from Princeton University, both in Chemical Engineering. Her research interests lie in the area of integrated process and molecular/materials design, including the development of design methods, property prediction techniques and optimisation algorithms. She is the recipient of several prizes including a RAEng-ICI Fellowship (1998-2003), the Philip Leverhulme Prize for Engineering (2009), the SCI Armstrong Lecture (2011). She holds an EPSRC Leadership Fellowship (2012-2017) and was elected Fellow of the IChemE in 2013. In 2011, she co-edited a book on Molecular Systems Engineering published by Wiley-VCH. David A. Kofke received his B.S. in chemical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, and his Ph.D from the University of Pennsylvania, advised by Eduardo Glandt. Since 1989 he has been on the chemical engineering faculty of the University at Buffalo (SUNY), where he served as department chair for six years, and now holds the rank of SUNY Distinguished Professor. Author of over 130 refereed publications, Kofke’s research currently focuses on rigorous molecular-based free-energy calculations for crystal-structure prediction, and calculation of virial coefficients and other cluster integrals from molecular models. Among other awards, Kofke is the recipient of the triennial John M. Prausnitz Award for applied chemical thermodynamics, the Jacob F. Schoellkopf Medal, and the Himmelblau Award from the CAST division of AIChE. Prof. Kofke is a member since 1999 of the Board of Trustees of CACHE, where he served as President in 2010-2012. He is a Fellow of AIChE and AAAS.
