Gilda A. Barabino, dean of The City College of New York's Grove School of Engineering, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering. She is now one of only six African-American women to hold the distinction.
Election to the NAE 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."
Myriam Sarachik, distinguished professor in the Division of Science, is the recipient of the 2020 American Physical Society Medal for Exceptional Achievement in Research. The medal is the society's largest prize, recognizing the achievements of researchers from across all fields of physics.
The honor is in recognition of Sarachik's "fundamental contributions to the physics of electronic transport in solids and molecular magnetism," and it will be received along with a $50,000 prize at a ceremony on January 30, 2020 in Washington, D.C.
We hope you will join the celebration!
