Brief Bio:
Dorothy Skaf is an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Villanova University and serves as department chair. She joined the Villanova faculty in 1988 where she has taught continuously with the exception of a one-year Fulbright appointment at Qatar University. Dorothy has published in the areas of material treatments for improved hardness and electrical conductivity, graphite fiber production and nanofiber applications in catalysis and waste treatment, and value recovery from biodiesel processing wastes. She has several publications related to heterogeneous photocatalysis for waste treatment and/or value recovery and is currently working on a project for treatment of food processing waste. She has taught numerous undergraduate and graduate courses. Her main teaching assignments include undergraduate courses on separations and process design and graduate courses on separations and process safety.

Dorothy earned her B.S in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University and her MS and PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. She is a licensed PE in Pennsylvania.

Distillation is widely used by the chemical and energy industries for separations. An understanding of distillation concepts can aid in the selection of appropriate separation strategies and operating conditions that enhance performance and save energy.

This presentation will include:
1. Review of the basic principles of binary distillation
2. Comparisons between binary and multicomponent distillation
3. Overview of innovations to enhance distillation efficiency

Please register no later than Monday February 15 at 5:00 PM.
