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.
At the 2016 American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference, I published a tips and tricks paper about successfully completing a Ph.D. In this paper, I summarized resources I found useful during my doctoral studies, some advice I was given, and lessons I learned along the way. The full paper can be accessed from the ASEE website.
The technical details of my laboratory kit for control systems were published in the Raspberry Pi special edition of Electronics. This article also includes the newly added Furuta Inverted Pendulum attachment for the kit. The open access paper can be found on the Electronics website.
I created a video demonstration of my control systems laboratory kit to help expand the reach of the new possibilities of instructional laboratories with low-cost hardware.
