A recent PhD graduate of the University of Iowa College of Engineering's Department of Mechanical Engineering has been selected to attend the Rising Stars in Mechanical Engineering workshop at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Min-yeong Moon received her doctorate degree in mechanical engineering from Iowa in August 2017 and has since been serving as a postdoctoral research scholar in the UI College of Engineering. She will be one of 30 junior academic women in mechanical engineering from across the nation to participate in the Rising Stars workshop, October 25–26, 2018.

The Rising Stars in Mechanical Engineering workshop is aimed at women graduate students and postdocs considering future careers in academia. During the workshop, participants will gain career skills, connect with a cohort of peers, and engage with mentors. Future workshops will be hosted by the mechanical engineering departments of Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley.
