John Lof Leadership Academy Mission
Without culturally competent visionaries that are able to communicate, collaborate, and create, there would be no progress in society. The John Lof Leadership Academy strives to inform and inspire these next-generation leaders in academia, industry, and beyond.
Through a “for us, by us” philosophy, John Lof Scholars aim to develop themselves through focused training, specialized workshops, and active learning through outreach and enterprise on and off the UConn campus.
Uche was awarded the NOBCChE Advancing Science Conference travel grant
Uche was awarded the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE) Advancing Science Conference Grant to attend the 2019 NOBCChE National Conference in St. Louis, MO on November 18-21.
Dennis and Uche were both awarded travel grants to attend the Machine Learning in Science and Engineering Conference to be held at Georgia Tech on June 10-12.
The second-annual MLSE conference highlights advances in research that utilize methods of artificial intelligence, the development of new machine learning algorithms designed for science and engineering problems, and the ways these methods lead to innovations across various fields. Researchers from academia, government, and industry will gather to explore the future of research in science and engineering.
On May 10, 2017, an internal symposium known as Machine Learning in Science and Engineering was held at Carnegie Mellon University to identify ways in which these computational tools are advancing diversity in several fields. Based on the strong response at CMU, an open conference was held on June 6–8, 2018 at the CMU campus in Pittsburgh in partnership with Georgia Tech.
This conference surveyed advances in basic research that utilizes methods of artificial intelligence, the development of new machine learning algorithms designed for science and engineering problems, and ways that these methods are leading to innovations across these fields. Researchers from academia, government, and industry participated in a unique and fascinating forum on the future of research and innovation in science and engineering.
