National Academy of Engineering Elects 86 Members and 18 International Members

The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has elected 86 new members and 18 international members, announced NAE President John L. Anderson today.  This brings the total U.S. membership to 2,309 and the number of international members to 281.

Prof. Kevrekidis was recognized for his research on multiscale mathematical modeling and scientific computation for complex, nonlinear reaction, and transport processes.

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."  Election of new NAE members is the culmination of a yearlong process. The ballot is set in December and the final vote for membership occurs during January.
