After receiving her master's degree, she plans to pursue a Ph.D.

SAE International holds multiple technical paper
contests for students and young professionals (age 1834). The student winners of the first 2020 competition
are George Koutsakis, a Ph.D. student at the University
of Wisconsin; and Erika Ziraldo, a Ph.D. student at the
University of Guelph. They were to present their winning
papers at WCX 2020 SAE World Congress Experience
in Detroit this month, but the event has been cancelled.
Unfortunately, the deadline for the other contest,
associated with the Innovations in Mobility conference,
has passed. The winners of that contest will be identified
in a future issue of MOMENTUM.


SAE teams up with executive leadership coach,
Alyson Lyon, to discuss challenges in the workplace
and possible solutions in the SAE Career Counselor

the past year, SAE has created four new episodes:
Career Advancement with SAE; Relationship Building;
Collaboration; and a bonus episode, Collaboration and
SAE Collegiate Design Series Competitions (CDS). You

engineer-with the Career Counselor Series, you can also
gain the skill set to navigate the office experience.
