Dr. Christine Grant Works Hard to Promote Women in STEM

By: , Posted on: November 17, 2016


Dr. Christine Grant catalyzes women influencers, and their male allies, in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to successfully navigate their academic and career pursuits. Dr. Grant is one of only four African-American women in the U.S. at the rank of Full Chemical Engineering Professor. Her research has focused on interfacial phenomena and more recently biomedical systems. A recipient of the NSF Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Math and Engineering Mentoring (PAESMEM), Grant has been recognized for broadening the participation, promotion and retention of underrepresented minorities (URM) in STEM.

She has been recognized for her advocacy for women in science and her educational outreach to Ghana, West Africa, by induction into the YWCA Academy of Women in Science and Technology, Sigma Iota Rho, an International Honor Society, and the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Society.

Engineering brings science and technology out of the lab and into the real world. Often without thinking about it, we engage every day with technology that is the product of careful, precise design and execution by engineers in electronics, optics, and communications; embedded systems; automotive, aerospace, and marine; mechanical; and many other disciplines. For decades, Elsevier has maintained and grown extensive collections in these and other cutting-edge areas, like biomechanics and nanotechnology, through our trusted imprints: Newnes, Academic Press, and Woodhead Publishing. In addition, our powerful online platforms like Knovel and Engineering Village help streamline research and development processes for users around the world.
