Faculty spotlight

Stan Sandler

Stan Sandler

50 years at UD | Henry Belin du Pont Chair of Chemical Engineering

Stan Sandler, who joined UD in 1967 after earning his doctorate at the University of Minnesota, has an office full of framed certificates and awards, but there are other things for which he would like to be remembered: The many books he has authored, the accomplishments of his students, his efforts to promote the use of computers in chemical engineering instruction and his initiation of a conference series in thermodynamics that has had a 40-year run.

In addition to his teaching and research at UD, Sandler - who is a member of the National Academy of Engineering - has consulted on a number of projects, including the destruction of armed chemical weapons and the encasement of radioactive wastes left over from the production of plutonium for nuclear weapons during World War II and the Cold War. He has also served as an expert witness in patent litigation.

At this point, Sandler shows no signs of slowing down - two of his books were published within the past two years.
