Wayne Pafko (email@example.com) "The Author"
Wayne M. Pafko (Dec. 31, 1973 - Present)
The author holds a B.S. degree in chemical engineering from the University of Minnesota (1997). He is a food process engineer that has been most recently employed at The Schwan Food Company (since 2002) and Procter & Gamble (1997 - 2001). Previous positions have included a technical aide position at 3M, summer internship at AlliedSignal Laminate Systems, and co-owner of Cedar Lake Software (a small shareware software publisher). This web site (a history of chemical engineering targeted primarily at high school and college students) was initiated as a special project during an introductory class on the history of science and technology at the University of Minnesota. It has since grown into one of the most popular chemical engineering web sites, and provides a good introduction to what the profession is all about.
