Chen worked at Exxon/Mobil for 33 years before joining the University in 2011. He is inventor or co-inventor of 126 U.S. patents on novel catalysts, oil refining, petrochemical and biomass processes.

Kondraske and a graduate student developed a software feature for computers and phones that identifies text and suggests a word to be used. He also is founding director of the UT Arlington Human Performance Institute.

Magnusson's research has applications in drug discovery, diagnostics, medical devices, homeland security and solar cells.

Election to NAI fellow status is awarded to academic inventors who have demonstrated a highly prolific spirit of innovation in creating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development and the welfare of society.

The 98 innovators elected to NAI fellow status this year represent 54 universities and nonprofit research institutes. Together, they hold more than 3,200 U.S. patents.

Included in this charter class are eight Nobel Laureates, two Fellows of the Royal Society and many other prestigious award winners.
