Robert Hesketh is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at Rowan University. He received his B.S. in 1982 from the University of Illinois and his Ph.D. from the University of Delaware in 1987. After his Ph.D. he conducted research at the University of Cambridge, England. Robert's research is in reaction engineering, novel separations including supercritical fluids, crystallization and ultrafiltration, green engineering, and the chemistry of gaseous pollutant formation and destruction related to combustion processes. Robert has received over 4.4 million in external funding for educational and technical research projects.
Robert's dedication to teaching has been rewarded by receiving several educational awards including the 2006 Chester F. Carlson, 2002 Robert G. Quinn Award, 1999 Ray W. Fahien Award, 1998 Dow Outstanding New Faculty Award, the 2001, 1999 and 1998 Joseph J. Martin Awards, and four teaching awards.
