Dr. Steve Keller in Austria

Miami University's Dr. Steven Keller has been a great friend of Technidyne Corporation for many years.  He is an associate professor of chemical and paper engineering, and was selected as a Fulbright visiting professor to Austria for the U.S. Scholar Program for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Keller, who joined Miami in 2006, will teach two courses at Graz University of Technology; one considering the surface chemistry of the manufacturing processes of paper, tissue and nonwovens, and the second on the subject of paper converting processes. He also will conduct research on the structure of low-density fibrous webs and how the distribution of fibers contributes to the properties of strength, softness and absorptivity.

In addition to his research and teaching, Keller will work to initiate a three-week study abroad

workshop for about 20 engineering students for Miami’s new winter session in January 2014.
 
I have talked to Dr. Keller while on his trip. It has been a great experience for him, and he has made some great connections with researchers and industry leaders throughout Austria.

The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program sends approximately 800 American scholars and professionals per year to approximately 125 countries, where they lecture and/or conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields. There are typically only about 35 U.S. Scholars in the field of engineering each year.
