Susan Hagness, University of Wisconsin-Madison


Susan Hagness is a Philip Dunham Reed Professor and Department Chair of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison specializing in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. She earned her PhD from Northwestern University. After graduating, she joined the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Throughout her career she has earned a 2000 Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineer and was named one of the world’s 100 Top Young Innovators by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s magazine, Technology Review.

Her group’s research spans computational and experimental applied electromagnetics, with an emphasis on bioelectromagnetics and the development of diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for biomedical applications.

Pascal Van Hentenryck, Georgia Tech


Pascal Van Hentenryck is the A. Russell Chandler III Chair and Professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He is also the executive director of the NSF AI Institute for Advances in Optimization. Several of his optimization systems have been in commercial use for more than 20 years. He is an INFORMS Fellow and a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), the recipient of two honorary doctoral degrees, and several teaching excellence awards at Brown University and Georgia Tech.

Dr. Hentenryck’s current research focuses on machine learning, optimization, and privacy with applications in energy systems, mobility, and supply chains. He explores methodologies that includes large-scale optimization and machine learning and applies them in challenging applications in energy, mobility, supply chains and logistics, privacy, and resilience.

Anna Stefanopoulou, University of Michigan


Anna Stefanopoulou is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and William Clay Ford Professor of Technology at the University of Michigan. She earned her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, from the University of Michigan in 1996. She also received her  M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and M.S. in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from the University of Michigan. Prior to her work at the University of Michigan, she became an assistant professor of mechanical and environmental engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1998. She is a co-author of Control of Fuel Cell Power Systems: Principles, Modeling, Analysis and Feedback Design. In 2007, she was named a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and later earned the Gustus L. Larson Memorial Award for her achievements in the field of Mechanical Engineering.

Her research focuses on estimation and control of internal combustion engines and electrochemical processes such as fuel cells and batteries.

Somnath Ghosh, John Hopkins University


Somnath Ghosh is the Michael G. Callas Chair Professor in the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering at John Hopkins University. He is the director of the Computational Mechanics Research Laboratory, the Center for Integrated Structure-Materials Modeling and Simulations, and the Center of Excellence on Integrated Materials Modeling. Ghosh earned his MS in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics at Cornell University in 1983 and his PhD in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics at the University of Michigan in 1988. He has earned awards such as the Computational Mechanics Award, International Association for Computational Mechanics, ICCM Investigator Medal, Distinguished Scientist/Engineer Award from the Metals and Materials Society, and a Co-author of paper winner of Robert J. Melosh Medal.

His research interests are Computational Mechanics with a focus on materials modeling, multi-scale structure-materials analysis and simulations, multi-physics modeling and simulation of multi-functional materials, materials characterization, and process modeling.
