Class of 2017, Emily Chen and Natasha Turkmani, Attend the 2017 Global Grand Challenges Summit (GGCS)

Two recent 2017 graduates, Emily Chen and Natasha Turkmani, attended the 2017 Global Grand Challenges Summit (GGCS) in Washington, DC from July 18 to July 20, 2017.  They presented their research posters.  Both were nominated by Princeton's School of Engineering and Applied Science, and financially supported by SEAS and the summit.

The 2017 Global Grand Challenges Summit (GGCS) was the third in a collaborative series sponsored by the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE), the UK Royal Academy of Engineering, and the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

The 2017 Summit aimed to inspire the next generation of engineers, policymakers, and the public to address critically important engineering challenges and opportunities facing humanity. It focused on the four themes of the NAE Grand Challenges for Engineering: Sustainability, Health, Security, and Joy of Living, as well as Education, and Public Engagement related to the Grand Challenges.

Below are photos of their posters.
