Hahn selected to participate in NAE Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

Mariah Hahn, assistant professor in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering's 16th Annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering symposium.Dr. Mariah HahnHahn is one of a select number of American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) members chosen to participate in the symposium. In addition to academia, other participants were selected from industry and government and were nominated by engineering colleagues and organizations.The symposium aims to convene engineers aged 30-45 who are performing exceptional research and technical work across a variety of disciplines in order to discuss multidisciplinary ways of contributing to the U.S. economy's development. Topics include cloud computing, autonomous aerospace systems, engineering and music and engineering inspired by biology.At Texas A&M, Hahn conducts research that focuses on understanding cell-cell and cell-material interactions at a more fundamental level to rationally guide tissue regeneration. Vocal fold tissue and cardiovascular tissues are used as model systems for probing cell response to controlled external stimuli.Hahn holds a joint appointment to the Department of Biomedical Engineering.The Frontiers of Engineering symposium will be held Sept. 23-25 at the IBM Learning Center in Armonk, NY.
