    new position
    Hello,
    I am an attendee at the Frontiers of Engineering program from the 2002-4 time period (not sure exactly what year). I just wanted to update my new position with you. I formerly worked for Air Products and Chemicals, Inc.

    The Centre of Excellence we are opening will be located at the Innovation Park at Penn State University. If desired, I can provide a more complete description of what we are doing and the team I am leading.

    Best Regards,
    Phil Armstrong
    Allentown, PA

    2016 Transformative Research Award Recipients
    I am grateful to receive 2016 NIH Director's Transformative Research Award. Not sure how many FOE Alum received this year's NIH Pioneer/Transformative/New Innovator awards. But can be found from the following list:

    Now a Jefferson Science Fellow in DC!
    Early in 2016, I was named a Jefferson Science Fellow, which is a program for placing science and engineering faculty at the US Dept. of State or USAID. I was placed at the Japan Desk in East Asian and Pacific Affairs Bureau at the Dept. of State. As a result, I had the opportunity to be a guest at the 2016 JAFOE, where I learned about a number of important areas of science and technology innovation. I am now living in Washington DC, and working at the State Dept on a number of science and technology portfolio elements to support the US-Japan alliance. In fact, in just a few hours (9/30), I will be departing for the Science, Technology and Society (STS) Forum in Kyoto.

    2.5 years after founding 3DSIM, and after almost 7 years of combined effort in academia and 3DSIM; I am proud to announce the release of exaSIM -- the world's first easy-to-use, cloud-based software tool for predicting residual stress, distortion, and where you need to place supports for metal 3D printing.

    Earlier this year, we published a new method called SIRZ for system-independent characterization of materials using dual-energy x-ray computed tomography [IEEE Trans Nuc Sci, 63(1), 341-350 (2016)]. Using this method, an accurate 3D map of electron density and effective atomic number of checked baggage in airports or of medical patients or of industrial parts can be found regardless of the scanner used. (Prior methods are specific to the scanner and can change over time.) The SIRZ method is already being considered for DHS and nondestructive evaluation applications.
