It is with great honor that the department announces that Dr. Diego Cerrai has been selected as one of the outstanding 100 early-career engineers from industry, universities, and government labs to participate in the 2022 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium, which will be held September 21-23 and hosted by Amazon in Seattle.

The symposium will focus on the following topics:

  • Microbes - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
  • Conversational AI
  • Technology and Racial Justice and Equity
  • Hydrogen: A New "Universal" Energy Carrier for the Carbon-free Future

As a scientist and engineer, Cerrai will further his knowledge on these cutting-edge research topics while also getting involved in the conversations related to the future of a carbon-free electric grid as the Eversource Energy Center Associate Director and Manager.

It is going to be a unique opportunity for a faculty member to represent our school in exciting conversations with top early-career engineers from:

  • Industry (e.g. IBM, Intel, Siemens, ExxonMobil, Microsoft, Dell, Amazon)
  • Government (e.g. NASA, Argonne, OakRidge, NREL, Air Force, NIST)
  • Top Universities (e.g. Stanford, MIT, Princeton)
