Sridevi Sarma has been named the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering’s vice dean for graduate education, effective November 1, 2019. In this new role, she will oversee all of WSE’s residential and nonresidential master’s programs, doctoral programs, the DEng program, and postdoctoral programs.
Sarma brings to this position a dedication to education at all levels, but particularly to graduate education. She has been integral to expanding the Whiting School’s STEM outreach and mentorship programs and, last year, she co-organized and hosted the Rising Stars in Biomedical Engineering Workshop at Johns Hopkins, a program that provided critical career development training to women in biomedical engineering and sciences. The program will be offered again this year from October 30 through 31.
