May 2015 Engineers On The Move

Anderson & Associates, Inc. would like to congratulate Warren Simmons, P.E. on his retirement. Mr. Simmons was the former V.P. of Operations for the firm’s Greensboro office.

Gordon M. Matheson, Ph.D., P.E., P.G. is the new president of the Geoprofessional Business Association (GBA), a not-for-profit association of geoprofessional firms. Accepting office during ceremonies at GBA’s annual meeting in Miami, Florida, Dr. Matheson is the 45th individual to serve as GBA’s president and chair the group’s board of directors. Dr. Matheson is the president and CEO of Schnabel Engineering, Inc. Dr. Matheson has more than 35 years of geoprofessional-practice experience, both domestic and international. Dr. Matheson earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Virginia Tech; his Master of Science degree from the University of Missouri at Rolla (now the Missouri University of Science and Technology), and his doctorate from the Colorado School of Mines.

Miroslav Pajic, an expert in cyber-physical systems, which merge physical processes with information systems, will join Duke University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as an assistant professor in July 2015. With a history of making the electronics embedded in the world around us connect and work together to safely interact with the physical world, Pajic will continue his focus on biomedical and automotive environments. Pajic began his studies at the University of Belgrade in Serbia, where he earned undergraduate and master’s degrees in electrical engineering. He then moved for his PhD and postdoctoral work to the University of Pennsylvania, where he was a postdoctoral researcher in the PRECISE Center (Penn Research in Embedded Computing and Integrated System) before accepting the offer to join the Duke engineering faculty.
Ken Gall has been named chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science in the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University. An interdisciplinary scientist whose work focuses on developing and understanding advanced materials for biomedical applications, Gall is currently a professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He will join Duke June 1 and assume the role of chair on July 1, 2015. Gall succeeds Earl Dowell, who has served as chair of Duke MEMS since 2010. Dowell, a former dean of Duke Engineering, will continue on the faculty as the William Holland Hall Professor of Mechanical Engineering.
