Where Science Meets Society

Brendan Harley selected for NAE’s Frontiers of Engineering

Dr. Brendan Harley, an associate professor in chemical and biomolecular engineering, has been selected to participate in the National Academy of Engineering’s 22nd annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) symposium.

The academy invites engineers ages 30 to 45 who are performing exceptional engineering research and technical work in a variety of disciplines to attend the event. The participants—from industry, academia, and government—were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations.
