This past academic year, we welcomed two distinguished alumni
speakers to campus for our fall and spring Lyon & Bendheim Lectures:
Neil Blumenthal, A02, co-founder and co-CEO of Warby Parker, who
spoke about his socially conscious eyewear company and
A86, A17P, Creative Director, Reed Krakoff Collection, who discussed
his experience designing for iconic fashion houses such as Coach,
Ralph Lauren, and Anne Klein. In November, winners from the $100K New Ventures Competition
traveled to New York to pitch their early-stage ventures to local
alumni. In February, Kirk Loevner, E79, former Engineering Board of
Advisor member, hosted a donor–volunteer reception with alumni at
his home in San Francisco featuring Professor Linda M. Abriola. Other on-campus
events included the third Stephen and Geraldine Ricci
Interdisciplinary Prize Lecture, in which members from the
prize-winning team presented their project to create a wireless
device to monitor blood oxygen concentration in the brain. In April,
the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering hosted a
research symposium to honor the late
Professor Emeritus Gregory Botsaris.
