Geosyntec Engineer Selected to Participate in NAE's 2007 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

ATLANTA, Ga. — Geosyntec Consultants is pleased to announce the selection of Marcus Quigley, PE, CPESC, of Geosyntec's Boston office as a participant in the National Academy of Engineering's (NAE) 13th annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering symposium. Marcus is the first Geosyntec staff member to be selected for this program. He focuses his practice on water resources engineering and related water supply and stormwater management issues nationwide. He earned a BS in environmental engineering from the University of Notre Dame and an MS in civil and environmental engineering from OregonStateUniversity.

The 2007 event will bring together 83 engineers ages 30 to 45, who are performing exceptional engineering research and technical work in a variety of disciplines and working in industry, academia, and government. The Symposium will take place in September at Microsoft Research in Redmond, Wash., and will examine trustworthy computer systems, safe water technologies, modeling and simulating human behavior, biotechnology for fuels and chemicals, and the control of protein conformations. Dr. Henrique Malvar, Microsoft Distinguished Engineer and managing director, Microsoft Research, will be a featured speaker.

"It is exciting to witness the energy when outstanding engineers from many different fields come together in this unique venue," said NAE President Wm. A. Wulf. "Frontiers of Engineering is a proven mechanism for traversing engineering disciplines. By exposing bright young minds to developments in areas other than their own — and giving them lots of time to interact — Frontiers enables advances in approaches and thinking that would not have occurred otherwise."
