Living the Promise: Emerging Technologies Symposium

UCR takes on challenges in innovation and emerging technologies

UCR researchers joined a panel discussion last week to discuss their work in the development of new materials and technologies for energy, environment, agriculture, computing, as well as educating the next generation of innovators.

The discussion, “Emerging Technologies,” was held on Thursday, Feb. 16, as part of the Living the Promise symposium series.

Symposium panelists and participants included: David Kisailus, professor of chemical and environmental engineering and Winston Chung Professor of Energy Innovation, Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering; Charles Wyman, distinguished professor of chemical and environmental engineering and Ford Motor Company Chair in Environmental Engineering at CE-CERT, Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering; Kelley Barsanti, assistant professor of chemical and environmental engineering, Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering; Wayne Miller, manager of emissions and fuels at CE-CERT, Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering; Vassilis Tsotras, professor of computer science and engineering, Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering; Julia Bailey-Serres, professor of genetics and geneticist, College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences; Susan R. Wessler, distinguished professor of genetics and Neil A. and Rochelle A. Campbell Presidential Chair for Innovations in Science Education, College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences.

Among the technologies discussed were chemical engineering processes, agricultural and global food challenges, and developing models for particle formation. The event also included a poster session in which students presented their research.

The Living the Promise Symposium series reflects key themes of the university’s comprehensive fundraising campaign, announced in October 2016. The $300 million campaign will conclude in 2020 and seeks funding for student support, faculty research, and infrastructure.

Attend future Living the Promise symposia:

  • From Genomics to Harvest: March 17
  • Renewable Nature: April 19
  • New Voices and Visions: May 4.
