Earlier this week, SONIC Director Noshir Contractor and Graduate Student Researcher Neelam Modi attended and participated in the Council of Engineering Systems Universities 2023 Symposium. The Council provides a mechanism for member universities to work together on developing engineering systems as a new field of study. An overall objective of the Council is to broaden engineering education and practice. Neelam gave a talk on Social Influence & Customer Preferences: A Case Study in the U.S. New Car Buyer Market, and Noshir served on a panel discussing Network Methods for Multi-Agent Sociotechnical Systems. Congrats, Noshir and Neelam!
