Computer engineer 'spotlighted' on Science Advisory Board web site

A profile of Kevin Karplus, professor of computer engineering, is featured in the "member spotlight" section of the web site of the Science Advisory Board. The Science Advisory Board is an international panel of life science and medical professionals formed in 1997. Board members convene electronically to participate in online studies addressing issues of importance to their areas of investigation or clinical specialties. Their comments help to influence the development of new technologies and to improve existing technologies.

CollegeBound Teen is published nationally two times a year and contains articles on issues of interest to teens, including balancing work and school, eating disorders, college loans, dorm decor, fashion, and fighting procrastination.
