At the 2017 American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference, one of my students published a paper about the success of a unique SWE event at Kettering University, Welding and Machining Day. The paper explained how the event was organized and summarized the feedback from the participants. Diane Peters, the faculty advisor, and I also co-authored the paper. The full paper can be accessed from the ASEE website.
At the 2017 American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference, I published a tips and tricks paper about collecting and organizing documents for promotion and tenure electronically. In this paper, I summarized resources I found useful during my first year on the tenure-track, some advice I was given, and a survey of other tenure-track faculty. The full paper can be accessed from the ASEE website.
On December 5, I presented a webinar for GradSWE on tips for successfully completing your dissertation. The topics included project management, time management, and writing.
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.
