Mayuresh Kothare, R. L. McCann Professor and Chair of chemical engineering, was recently interviewed by Control Systems magazine along with 14 other leaders in the field. Kothare spoke about his inspiration to become an engineer and his work within the field of control systems, and describes the promising opportunities and future of control systems research. “Emerging applications arising at the intersection of life sciences and engineering,” he says, “will provide very exciting opportunities for researchers trained in systems and control to make a lasting impact.” Control Systems is published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence.
This Fall, East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) appointed Kothare as a guest professor. Over the summer,was also part of a large Lehigh delegation including President Alice P. Gast and Mohamed S. El-Aasser, vice president for international affairs, as it made its way through a 10-day trip to six universities in China.
