James Liao, UCLA professor elected to National Academy of Engineering

James C. Liao, UCLA's Ralph M. Parsons Foundation Professor of Chemical Engineering and chair of the chemical and biomolecular engineering department at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering.

Election to the academy is one of the highest professional distinctions that can be awarded to an engineer in the United States.  The academy's citation recognized Liao "for advances in metabolic engineering of microorganisms to produce fuels and chemicals." He joins 68 other new members and 11 foreign associates elected for their outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education."
