André Boehman named SAE International Fellow
University Park, Pa. -- André Boehman, professor of fuel science and materials science and engineering, has been elected as a 2011 International Fellow by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
SAE Fellow membership is given in recognition of "outstanding engineering and scientific accomplishments by an individual that have resulted in meaningful advances in automotive, aerospace, and commercial-vehicle technology." It is the highest grade of membership granted by SAE International.
Boehman was chosen for the honor based on his "outstanding accomplishments for promising research in alternative and reformulated fuels and engine combustion and emissions." He, along with the other members of the 2011 class of SAE Fellows, will be celebrated at the SAE 2012 World Congress and Exhibition in Detroit, Michigan, in April.
Earlier this year, SAE International presented Boehman with the 2009 Arch T. Colwell Merit Award in recognition of a technical paper he co-authored, "An Experimental Investigation of the Origin of Increased NOx Emissions when Fueling a Heavy-Duty Compression-Ignition Engine with Soy Biodiesel."
SAE International is a global association of more than 128,000 engineers and related technical experts in the aerospace, automotive, and commercial-vehicle industries.
