Wenzhuo Wu, the Ravi and Eleanor Talwar Rising Star Associate Professor in Industrial Engineering, has been invited to participate in the 2022 China-America Frontiers of Engineering (CAFOE) symposium July 18-20.
Sixty highly accomplished early-career engineers from China and the United States will meet for an intensive symposium on developments at the cutting edge of engineering technology in four areas: Wearable Electronics and Human Health, Water Sustainability, Additive Manufacturing and Beyond, and Food Safety in the Context of Big Data and Genomics. The event is intended to facilitate international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encourage the creation of a transpacific network of world-class engineers.
In 2008, CAFOE was initiated with the aim of bringing together outstanding early-career Chinese and American engineers from industry, universities and other research institutions to introduce their areas of engineering research and technical work, thereby facilitating an interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge and methodology that could eventually lead to collaborative networks of engineers from the two countries.
The symposium is carried out in cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Engineering and supported by The Grainger Foundation and the National Science Foundation.
