Picture of Lonna Gordon

Brief Biographical Sketch:

In her misspent youth, pursuing her first B.A., Lonna Gordon was an English major. She enjoyed the reading and writing, but something was missing...
Then she switched to the chemical and biological engineering program at Polytechnic University (now the Polytechnic Institute of NYU). Suddenly, life was complete!

Since then, she's done some research in chemical engineering, solved many mass balances, founded an AIChE chapter at Poly, joined Engineers without Borders, and spent a summer improving the world's toilet paper.

For fun, she still reads and writes, and also swims, hikes, studies kung fu, and teases her little sister.

Intro to Chemical Engineering in Splash! 2010 (Nov. 20 - 21, 2010)
Where do physics, mathematics, and chemistry come together as a logic puzzle? In chemical engineering. Chemical engineers are the people behind everything. From canned soup to medicine to cleaning up oil spills, chemical engineers design the process to make it happen. Use science, math, and chemical engineering principles to design a process to produce jam, artificial lungs, or clean up pollution. New this year: design a distillation column and separation process and learn about the career potential in one of the highest paid engineering professions.
