Nakahira Attends Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

Yorie Nakahira, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, was one of 60 researchers selected to attend the  National Academy of Engineering 2023 Japan-America Frontiers of Engineering symposium in Boulder, Colorado in July 2023.

The two-and-a-half-day symposium showcased developments on the following topics: materials by design, computational approaches to address infectious diseases, wearable robotics, and circular economy. The broad range of topics was intended to promote cross-disciplinary collaboration among the early-career engineers from the United States and Japan who attended.

While at the symposium, Nakahira presented her research, listened to talks, and joined discussions.

"It was a great honor to be invited to the 2023 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium,” said Nakahira. “Being surrounded by brilliant early-career engineers was so inspiring.”

Nakahira’s recent research focuses on laying the framework to optimize emerging technologies to mimic human capabilities. Read more here.
