Baoxia Mi speaks at NAE symposium
Professor Baoxia Mi was one of the 17 invited speakers at the 2016 National Academy of Engineering US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium, held on September 19-21 in Irvine, California.
About 100 outstanding engineers under the age of 45 met for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in four areas: Technologies for Understanding and Treating Cancer; Pixels at Scale; Water Desalination and Purification; and Extreme Engineering.
The goal of the Frontiers of Engineering program is to bring together engineers from all engineering disciplines and from industry, universities, and federal labs to facilitate cross-disciplinary exchange and promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields in order to sustain and build US innovative capacity. Professor Mi spoke on new materials for emerging desalination technologies.
