Dr. Jodie Lutkenhaus, associate professor and holder of the William and Ruth Neely Faculty Fellowship in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been invited to participate in the World Economic Forum’s Young Scientists program in Dalian, China, in June.
The Young Scientists program is part of the Annual Meeting of the New Champions. The meeting, one of four major annual meetings, focuses on innovation, science and technology, and brings together “the next generation of fast-growing enterprises shaping the future of business and society, and leaders from major multinationals, government, media, academia and civil society.”
The Young Scientists are honored for their “contributions to advancing the frontiers of science, engineering and technology and benefit from a tailored program that exposes them to policy leaders, decision-makers and entrepreneurs.” Lutkenhaus will be one of 50 scientists under the age of 40, from all regions of the world and a wide range of fields, to offer perspectives on the latest and emerging global trends.
The meeting theme this year is “Achieving Inclusive Growth in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”
