Glotzer elected to the National Academy of Engineering

C. Glotzer, the Anthony C. Lembke Department Chair of Chemical Engineering and MSE professor, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), the nation’s most prestigious engineering association.

Also a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, Glotzer is internationally recognized for her foundational research into the self-assembly of nanoparticles.

Among her engineering accomplishments, the NAE notes her “development of computer-based design principles for assembly engineering and manufacturing of advanced materials and nanotechnology.” Glotzer is one of 86 members in the newly elected class, which also includes Alec Gallimore, the Robert J. Vlasic Dean of Engineering, and Nadine B. Sarter, professor of industrial and operations engineering.

NAE 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.”

Glotzer and the NAE Class of 2019 will be formally inducted during a ceremony at the NAE’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 6.

In addition to her role as chair of Chemical Engineering and MSE professor, Glotzer is also the John Werner Cahn Distinguished University Professor of Engineering and the Stuart W. Churchill Collegiate Professor of Chemical Engineering. She is also a professor of Macromolecular Science and Engineering, Physics, and Applied Physics.
