Dr. Paul Krajewski

Dr. Paul Krajewski, a triple MSE alum (BSE '89, MSE '91, PHD '94) is a materials scientist, Big Three executive...and author.

Krajewski, director of the Vehicle Systems Research Lab at General Motors, co-authored What's in Your Car? with Matt Topper in 2016. The book explores how the elements of the periodic table are used to make a car.

Last spring, then, Krajewski and Topper followed up with What's in Your Body?, this time describing how the elements of the periodic table are incorporated into the body. One Amazon review says: "From bones to bananas, prothetics to poop, various elements contribute to build, strengthen and support our bodies. This book can be used as an entry to a deeper understanding of the periodic table and its role in human life."

Krajewski said he wrote both books to "get kids excited about science and technology."
