NAE selects two from Tech for ‘Frontiers’ symposium
The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has selected two Georgia Tech faculty — College of Computing Associate Professor David Bader and Mechanical Engineering Assistant Professor Samuel Graham — to participate in the NAE’s annual Frontiers of Engineering symposium, a three-day event that will bring together engineers ages 30 to 45, who are performing cutting- edge engineering research and technical work in a variety of disciplines. Participants were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations and chosen from 260 applicants. The symposium will be held Sept. 24-26 at Microsoft Research in Redmond, Wash., and will examine trustworthy computer systems, safe water technologies, modeling and simulating human behavior, biotechnology for fuels and chemicals and the control of protein conformations.
