Last week, the National Medal of Technology and Innovation was awarded to two professors that I’ve worked for – Prof. Langer at MIT and Prof. Arnold at Caltech. These awards are the highest achievement that can be given to an engineer – the Nobel prize for engineering. I watched the live feed on the web, it kind of blows my mind that I had the opportunity to work in these world class labs. Working in these research labs taught me so much about the scientific process. Congrats!
