The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) elected 83 new members and 16 foreign members. This brings the total U.S. membership to 2,293 and the number of foreign members to 262.
Professor Lynden Archer was selected, “for advances in nanoparticle-polymer hybrid materials and in electrochemical energy storage technologies.”
Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.”
