The newest additions represent a variety of fields including biomedical engineering, neuroengineering, chemical engineering and solid mechanics. It is anticipated that more scholars will be brought on in the coming years, according to a Brown release.

“One of our priorities in growing engineering at Brown is to recruit world-class scholars to join our faculty,” Larry Larson, dean of the School of Engineering, said in a statement. “This new group of young faculty members is a reflection of that effort. They are all doing important and impactful research at the cutting edge of their disciplines. They will be fantastic additions to the scholarly community here at Brown, and we’re very pleased to welcome them.”

The School of Engineering’s faculty will total at 49 with the six new members, said a Brown release, adding that the hiring is the beginning of a $160 million multiyear campaign to develop the school. The project will also include additions of teaching and research space on College Hill.

The new faculty includes David Borton, a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow at the Swiss National Institute of Technology; C. Franklin Goldsmith, a Director’s Fellow at Argonne National Laboratory; David Henann a joint postdoctoral associate in Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s department of mechanical engineering; Kareen Kreutziger, who bioengineering and specializes in cardiac tissue engineering, muscle mechanics, regenerative medicine and stem cell biology; Anita Shukla, an National Institutes of Health Ruth Kirschstein postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Bioengineering at Rice University; and Ian Wong a Damon Runyon Cancer Research Fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
