Guest Presenters
Professor Zoltan Nagy - Purdue University
Dr. Nagy is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University.  He joined Purdue in fall 2012 from Loughborough University, UK, where he was a professor of process systems engineering and Director of the Departmental Pharmaceutical Engineering Research Centre. Dr. Nagy has over 17 years of experience in advanced process control, PAT, crystallization modeling and control approaches and advanced control of particulate systems. His current research focuses on the design and robust control of batch and continuous crystallization systems, PAT, and integrated particulate manufacturing processes. He has authored more than 150 archival journal papers and is the co-author of 2 books. He has given over 100 invited seminars at conferences, universities and companies worldwide, including many keynote and plenary talks. Dr. Nagy graduated 15 PhD students and currently supervises or co-supervises 20 in the UK and Purdue. Dr. Nagy is the Founding Editor of the Pharmaceutical Engineering Subject area of Chemical Engineering Research and Design, and associate editor of another four international journals in the area of process control. Dr. Nagy is member of the American Association for Crystallization Technologies, and the Crystallization Working Party of the European Federation of Chemical Engineers. He received numerous awards and best paper prizes for his work in the areas of crystallization and control.

Jennifer Schall - Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Jennifer Moffitt Schall is an NSF Graduate Fellow at MIT, where she is pursuing both a PhD in Chemical Engineering and an MBA. As a fourth-year graduate student in the Myerson group, she studies antisolvent crystallization kinetics, focusing on how solvent mixtures play a role in crystal growth and nucleation rates. During her graduate studies, she has worked on multiple industrial processes, including processes for Takeda Pharmaceutical Company, Cabot Corporation, and Novartis Pharmaceutical Company. Ultimately, Jennifer hopes to use her research to develop more efficient and more economical drug production processes. Jennifer earned a B.S. in Chemical Engineering with an emphasis on polymer science from Clemson University. She also spent three years working in the specialty chemicals industry, researching crystallization and filtration at Eastman Chemical Company as part of the Separations Engineering Research group.
