2017 Travel Grant Winners

Congratulations to these four Graduate Women in Engineering Network (GWEN) participants on receiving travel grants from the Women in Engineering Program! We wish you all well as you present your research as these technical conferences!

Shelly Jahn (Phd IE)

Shelly Jahn (PhD IE) will travel to Austin, TX, this fall to the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) Annual Meeting where she will present as part of a panel on Human Factors & Pharmacy. In addition, she will be co-presenting work on 1) Expanding Medication Decision Support in Community Pharmacies without Sacrificing Usability and 2) Formative Usability Evaluation of a Novel Tool for Medication Reconciliation. She will also be accepting the "Student Member with Honors" award at this meeting. 

Lisa Lorena Losada Rojas (PhD CE)

Lisa Lorena Losada Rojas (PhD CE) will be attending the 64th Annual North American Meetings of the Regional Science Association International in Vancouver, Canada this fall. She will present her research entitled 'Assessing the First and Last Mile Problem in Intercity Passenger Rail Service' to researchers from around the world. She's looking forward to the exchange of ideas and opportunities for future collaborations as well as attending workshops and tutorials that will be beneficial to her current and future research.

Natasha Trellinger Buswell (PhD ENE)

Natasha Trellinger Buswell (PhD ENE) will be presenting a workshop "A Narrative Approach to Broadening Schema about Engineering Professors" at this fall's Frontiers in Education conference in Indianapolis, IN. Her workshop focuses on 12 narratives she wrote based on interviews with early career engineering faculty that she feels will impact and expand graduate students and faculty members' conceptions about what it means to be an engineering professor.

Elizabeth Wachs (PhD ABE)

Elizabeth Wachs (PhD ABE) will travel to Minneapolis, MN this fall to the American Institute for Chemical Engineering (AIChE) meeting where she will give two oral presentations as lead author: 1) A Physical Input-Output Model for the Food-Energy-Water Nexus in Indiana and 2) Changing Global Demand for Fossil Based Electricity with Adoption of Renewables at Urban Scale. She looks forward to attending AIChE for the first time and networking with other chemical engineers.
