This year I was recognized as one of the Society of Women Engineers' Distinguished New Engineers. This award is given to a maximum of 10 engineers each year. The award recognizes women who have progressed in their technical careers, contributed to their local community, and to SWE.
I was selected for successfully navigating a career transition from industry to academia, for innovative research in engineering education, and for leadership in fulfilling the SWE mission.
As I transition from my industrial career to my new academic career, I am honored to be recognized for my achievements so far. I am excited about the new phase of my career working with students to prepare them for their careers.
