VanBriesen Spoke to NAE about Water Quality
CEE Professor Jeanne VanBriesen was awarded a Gilbreth Lectureship and gave a talk entitled "Water Infrastructure in a Digital Age" to members at the National Academy of Engineers at their annual meeting in Washington, D.C.. Professor VanBriesen was chosen by peers in the highly-selective Frontiers of Engineering program as part of the Armstrong Endowment for Young Engineers-Gilbreth Lectures -- named in honor of Lillian M. Gilbreth, the first woman inducted into the NAE. This award was established in 2001 by the Council of the National Academy of Engineering as a means of recognizing outstanding young American engineers and making them more visible to the NAE membership. Recipients of the lectureships are selected from among presenters at NAE's Frontiers of Engineering symposia, through a vote by meeting participants.
