Hi! I am an international student majoring in Chemical Engineering and I will be graduating in May 2018. I have been involved in AIChE for a year, and I cannot be more grateful for the great opportunities it has given me. It is now my turn to give back to this wonderful organization. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. On my free time I enjoy cooking for friends, reading, and any outdoor activity.

Hi everybody! Along with being AIChE Secretary this year, I also plan to continue doing outreach activities this year. I am also a sister and officer for Phi Sigma Rho, which is an Engineering and Engineering Technology Sorority. I love working with people and through these wonderful organizations, I have been able to reach out to audiences of all ages by planning outreach events as well as workshops on professionalism and lifelong planning and evaluation. Please feel free and welcome to reach out to me for any questions. Go Coogs!



Jose Sachango

Hello! My name is Jose Sachango, I am a Junior in chemical engineering. I'll be acting as AlChE's Webmaster this year. If I'm not studying, or doing something school related you will probably find me skating. I also like to dabble in different hobbies; some of the more recent being brewing and Pokemon hunting. I have been involved with AlChE since first year here at UH. I was part of the Chem-E-Car team and have volunteered in outreach events along the way. AlChE and its members have helped me tremendously these past few years and I hope to be able to give back to fellow students in the same way. Feel free to contact me at any time!


Social Media Director

Justin L. Martin

Hello, my name is Logan Martin and I am a junior in chemical engineering. AIChE is a great organization that will give you chances to meet fellow ChemE students and offers several great extra-curricular opportunities. Last year I really enjoyed working on the Chem-E-Car team, which required time spent in the lab and a very practical/realistic approach to achieving a goal. Outside of school I like to read, play guitar, and spend time with friends. Feel free to reach out to me about getting involved with AIChE or anything ChemE related.


Social Director

Adnan Karim

I'm a senior at UH! Born and raised here in Houston and I bleed red (literally and figuratively, go coogs!) I've been involved with aiche since freshman year and I'm looking to finish out strong as the Social Director. After graduation I hope to work in industry as a project engineer and one day come back to AIChE as a industry mentor!


Facilities Director

Laniel Ogu

Hi! My name is Laniel Ogu and I'm a junior in Chemical Engineering. I'll be your 2016-2017 Facilities Director this year. I joined AIChE my freshman year of college and have loved every minute of it. I was the sophomore class representative of AIChE last year. I also enjoy playing basketball, video games, and hanging out with my friends. This year I'll be in charge of AIChE general meeting logistics and the recreational committee. My goal is to get all members involved in the multiple social, athletic, and professional events we will be hosting this year. I've learned so much from being in AIChE and I hope everyone can experience all we have to offer. You can contact me about anything AIChE or Chem-E related and I'll be happy to help!
