Three New Clark School-Affiliated NAE Members

Three Clark School-affiliated faculty members were inducted this week as members of the National Academy of Engineering.

The NAE has more than 2,000 peer-elected members and foreign associates. These are senior professionals in business, academia and government who are among the world’s most accomplished engineers. They provide leadership and expertise for numerous academy projects focused on the interconnection of engineering, technology and our quality of life.

The A. James Clark School-affiliated inductees are:

1. John Anderson, professor emeritus, Clark School Department of Aerospace Engineering, and curator at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Inducted for aerospace engineering and history textbooks and for contributions to hypersonic gas dynamics.

2. Ali Mosleh, Jeong H. Kim Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Clark School Department of Mechanical Engineering. Inducted for contributions to the development of Bayesian methods and computational tools in probabilistic risk assessment and reliability engineering.

3. Ben Shneiderman, professor of computer science, College of Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences, and Clark School Institute for Systems Research. Inducted for research, software development and scholarly texts concerning human-computer interaction and information visualization.

"Induction is a great honor to the individuals elected and to the organizations with which they are affiliated," said Clark School Dean Darryll Pines. "Their induction is a testament to the quality of our faculty members and our contributions to the engineering profession."

Their induction ranks as the greatest number of Clark School-affiliated faculty members ever elected in one year. Only about 70 people are recognized with this honor; the Clark School represents nearly 5 percent of U.S. inductees for 2010.
