WiE Webinar: Nanostructure for Sensors in Chemical and Biological SystemsDr. Mona Zaghloul on women engineers and nanostructure
WiE is proud to present Dr. Mona Zaghloul in this episode of our SEAS Faculty Discussion Series. Dr. Zaghloul has achieved many firsts in her storied career, including being the first woman to earn a doctorate in engineering from the University of Waterloo, Canada, and the first woman faculty member hired in SEAS. In addition to talking about her journey, Dr. Zaghloul relates a brief history of women engineers and the effect of advances in technology.
Featured during this webinar is Dr. Zaghloul's research on nanostructures, including lessons learned and perspectives on the future of this fascinating area of engineering.
