Prof. Andrea Alù was selected to participate in the 2014 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium by the U.S. National Academy of Engineering. Participation in the symposium is based on a rigorous application and selection process determined by the organizing committee. Each year, 100 engineers under the age of 45 meet for an intensive multi-day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in the areas of next generation robotics, materials for batteries, impacts of shale gas and oil on the economy, environment, energy sustainability and technologies for the heart.
Prof. Andrea Alù was recognized as an Outstanding Referee by the American Physical Society (APS). This award recognizes scientists who have been exceptionally helpful in assessing manuscripts for publication in APS journals. The highly selective Outstanding Referee program annually recognizes the top 150 of the roughly 60,000 currently active referees.
