Adrienne Minerick received her M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame in 2003 and B.S. from Michigan Technological University in 1998. Adrienne’s research interests include electrokinetics, predominantly dielectrophoretic characterizations of cells, and the development of biomedical microdevices. She earned a NSF CAREER award, has published research in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, Lab on a Chip, and had an AIChE Journal cover. She is an active mentor of undergraduate researchers and co-directed an NSF REU site. Research within her Medical micro-Device Engineering Research Laboratory (M.D. – ERL) also inspires the development of Desktop Experiment Modules (DEMos) for use in chemical engineering classrooms or as outreach activities in area schools (see www.mderl.org). Adrienne has been an active member of ASEE’s WIED, ChED, and NEE leadership teams since 2003 and during this time has contributed to 36 ASEE conference proceedings articles and 6 educational journal publications.
Roger Green received the B.S. degree in electrical and computer engineering and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Wyoming in 1992, 1994, and 1998, respectively. During his Ph.D. studies, he also obtained a graduate minor in statistics.
He is currently an Associate Professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at North Dakota State University, where he teaches courses in signals and systems, digital signal processing, random processes, communications, controls, embedded systems, and others. His main research interests include digital and statistical signal processing, time series analysis, spectral and time-frequency analysis, array processing, real-time systems, and data adaptive techniques.
Canan Bilen-Green is Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement at North Dakota State University. She is also Dale Hogoboom Professor of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering and PI of the ADVANCE Program at North Dakota State University.

Professor Constant is Wilkinson Professor of Interdisciplinary Engineering and Chair of Materials Science and Engineering at Iowa State University. She has been an advocate of broadening participation in engineering and engineering education since joining ISU in 1992, and has been involved in ISU's NSF ADVANCE program since 2006.
Beth Holloway is the Director of the Women in Engineering Program at Purdue University, where she initiates, manages, evaluates, and promotes comprehensive activities and programs that recruit and retain women in engineering from Kindergarten through faculty ranks. She is also the Director of Student Success for the College of Engineering at Purdue University. Holloway received both B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Engineering Education, all from Purdue University. Her research areas include women and leadership, particularly in male dominated careers; differential retention issues for women across engineering disciplines; and engineering admissions practices.
She is currently the Program Chair of the Women in Engineering Division for ASEE. She served on the ASEE Diversity Committee from 2010 – 2012. Holloway was also president of WEPAN (Women in Engineering ProActive Network, www.wepan.org) in 2006-07, served on WEPAN’s Board of Directors from 2005 – 2008, and was the co-chair of the 2003 WEPAN National Conference.
Sandra D. Eksioglu is an Associate Professor in the Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) Department of Mississippi State University. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Florida in 2002. She joined the ISE faculty in August 2005. Sandra’s research interests include supply chain optimization, logistics and supply chain management, transportation systems, operations research, network optimization, and systems simulations. Sandra is an active member of INFORMS, IIE and ASEE. She served as an officer for the Women in OR/MS Forum. She is currently an officer of WIED. Many of the students that she has mentored and advised during her career are girls pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in industrial engineering
Debra Gilbuena is a postdoctoral scholar in the School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering at Oregon State University. Debra has an M.BA, an M.S, and four years of industrial experience including a position in sensor development. Sensor development is also an area in which she holds a patent. She currently has research focused on student learning in virtual laboratories and the diffusion of educational interventions and practices.
