National Academy of Engineering 2017

National Academy of Engineering 2017

Dr. Leila Ladani, a professor in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and one of the lead scientists of UTARI/IPPM has been chosen to take part in National Academy of Engineering 2017 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. The Frontiers of Engineering program brings together through 2-1/2 day meetings a select group of emerging engineering leaders from industry, academe, and government labs to discuss pioneering technical work and leading edge research in various engineering fields and industry sectors. The goal of the meetings is to introduce these outstanding engineers (ages 30-45) to each other, and through this interaction facilitate collaboration in engineering, the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields, and establishment of contacts among the next generation of engineering leaders. Participants—from industry, academia, and government—were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations.

 

Only 60 individuals worldwide from universities, industry and research laboratories are invited to join this prestigious Symposium. The Symposium will include four topics of discussion including Computational Imaging, Next-Generation Solar Cells, Technologies for Space Exploration, and Neuroengineering. Dr. Ladani will bring her experience and expertise in manufacturing and mechanics with applications to energy and space systems (http://www.uta.edu/mae/magiclab/​) ​to this symposium. This Symposium is hosted by the University of California, Davis in November, 2017.
