Financial engineering conference examines challenges of data-centric business environment

Experts in financial engineering and quantitative finance converged at Lehigh on November 15 for a Quant/Financial Engineering Conference that addressed the challenges in today’s data-centric business environment. The conference aimed to promote the exchange of ideas in data management, data science, blockchain, deep learning and other areas. 

Lehigh launches Distinguished Water Lecture

“The global, humanity-wide importance of access to clean water is self-evident,” says clean-water champion and renowned researcher, educator, author, and inventor Arup SenGupta, “and it is not up to water scientists alone to address the issue. The world needs all of us—engineers of every stripe, businesspeople, educators, journalists, artists, and designers, among others—to learn about the challenges and engage in the search for sustainable global solutions.”

A rare fellow: Eric Krueger, Lehigh's first NIH National Research Service Award recipient

When Eric Krueger applied for an individual postdoctoral fellowship from the National Institutes of Health in 2017, the success rate was about 28 percent. And when he got the award—which ends on September 15—he became Lehigh University’s first NIH National Research Service Award Fellow.

“It’s really been fantastic,” says Krueger, a postdoctoral fellow in chemical and biomolecular engineering. “It has allowed me to customize what I want to do, and what I want to learn.”
