CIT Faculty Nadine Aubry and Chris Hendrickson have been elected into the National Academy of Engineering (NAE)
"This outstanding recognition is a tribute to the leading-edge, innovative spirit of our problem-solving engineering faculty," said Pradeep K. Khosla, dean of CIT. Election into the NAE is one of the highest professional distinctions an engineer can achieve.
Nadine Aubry is the Raymond J. Lane Distinguished Professor and head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Her leadership in engineering education and research in low-dimensional models of turbulence and microfluidic devices contributed to her election into the NAE. Her research in fluid dynamics has applications in aerospace, biotechnology, energy, the environment, materials engineering and nanotechnology. Her accomplishments include the enhancement and control of fluid mixing, the manipulation of suspended particles and drops and the self-assembly of particles into adjustable monolayers. Aubry serves on numerous committees and recently completed her term as chair of the National Research Council's U.S. National Research Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. She is also an elected member of the Congress Committee on the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and is the associate editor for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers' Journal of Applied Mechanics.
Chris Hendrickson is the Duquesne Light Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and co-director of the Green Design Institute at Carnegie Mellon. He will be inducted into the NAE for his leadership and contributions in transportation and green design engineering. His current research projects include life cycle assessment methods, assessment of alternative construction materials, economic and environmental implications of e-commerce, product takeback planning and infrastructure for alternative fuels. He has co-authored three textbooks, two monographs and many research articles. Hendrickson is active in professional organizations, including the American Society for Civil Engineers (ASCE) where he is a distinguished member. He has received the ASCE's Turner Lecture Award and serves as the editor-in-chief of the ASCE Journal of Transportation Engineering.
