Wu Named Gilbert W. Winslow Career Development Assistant Professor
LIDS faculty member Cathy Wu, who joined MIT in 2019 July, was named the Gilbert W. Winslow Career Development Assistant Professor by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE). This prestigious appointment provides support for professional activities. The award reflects the excellence of Cathy’s work, as well as the great potential for her future contributions to research and education at MIT.
