Jordan Green selected to participate in NAE 2012 Symposium
July 18, 2012
Jordan Green, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering is among 78 of the nation’s brightest young engineers selected to participate in the National Academy of Engineering’s (NAE) 18th Annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. Dr. Green will collaborate with engineers ages 30–45 from industry, academia and government in the event being held on September 13–15, 2012 at the General Motors Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. According to the NAE, this invitation–only symposium will examine serious games, vehicle electrification, climate engineering, and Dr. Green's area of expertise, engineering materials for the biological interface.
The Frontiers of Engineering program brings together a select group of emerging engineering leaders to discuss pioneering technical work and leading edge research in various engineering fields and industry sectors. The goal is to introduce outstanding engineers to one another, and through this interaction facilitate collaboration in engineering, the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields, and to establish contacts among the next generation of engineering leaders.
NAE President Charles M. Vest stated that “Our nation’s health, quality of life, and security will depend on the engineering achievements of the 21st century. The Frontiers of Engineering program gives young engineering pioneers the opportunity to collaborate and share approaches across fields. We believe those interactions will generate new ideas for improving the future.”
In addition to Dr. Green, JHU’s Dr. Joelle Frechette, Assistant Professor, Whiting School of Engineering Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering has also been invited to participate.
