National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has recognized Deblina Sarkar, assistant professor at MIT and AT&T Career Development Chair Professor at MIT Media Lab, as one of the highly accomplished early career engineers. She has been invited to attend NAE’s Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering 2022 Symposium, which will feature innovative researchers from industry, academia and government. The symposium will be held September 21-23 in Seattle, Washington, where she will present her scientific and technological contributions.
Prof. Sarkar has been selected based on her exceptional research in the interdisciplinary fields of nanoelectronics and biology. Her lab develops energy-efficient nanoelectronic devices as environmentally sustainable hardware for Artificial Intelligence and merges novel nanoelectronics with biology to create a new paradigm of life-nanomachine symbiosis for transforming healthcare.
The NAE’s Frontiers of Engineering 2022 Symposium is sponsored by the Grainger Foundation, Amazon, National Science Foundation, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, and Cummins.
The NAE is a private, independent, nonprofit institution which provides engineering leadership with the mission to advance the welfare and prosperity of the nation. It is part of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, which is chartered by Congress for providing advice to the nation on matters related to science, technology, and health.
