Muyinatu Bell to receive the Maryland Outstanding Young Engineer Award
Muyinatu Bell, assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Biomedical Engineering, has been chosen by the Maryland Academy of Sciences to receive the Maryland Outstanding Young Engineer Award.
Conferred by the Maryland Science Center, this award recognizes and encourages the important work being done by Maryland’s young professional engineers. The Outstanding Young Engineer Award is given in the name of Allan C. Davis, a Baltimore native and 1917 graduate of Johns Hopkins University. A businessman and inventor, Davis held several patents, served as President of the Academy and Chairman of the Board of Directors, and funded the Maryland Science Center’s Davis Planetarium.
As director of the Photoacoustic and Ultrasonic Systems Engineering (PULSE) Laboratory, Bell and her team integrate optics, acoustics, robotics, electronics, and mechanics, as well as signal processing and medical device design, to engineer and deploy innovative biomedical imaging systems that not only address unmet clinical needs, but also significantly improve patient care.
Bell will be honored at a ceremony at the Maryland Science Center or Wednesday, May 8.
