Two faculty members earn prestigious fellow designations
Gangopadhyay, C.W. LaPierre Endowed Chair Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was named a National Academy of Inventors (NAI) Fellow by previously elected Fellows, and her official induction will take place in April. In order to be selected, a nominee must be associated with an academic entity and hold one or more patents with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Gangopadhyay’s work has made DNA analysis for medical studies increasingly flexible and more mobile.
Khanna, C.W. LaPierre Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, was selected as a American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Fellow by the ASME Fellows Review Committee. ASME is “a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods.” Khanna’s induction was made official earlier this month.
More detailed stories on each faculty member’s election will come in the next few months.
