Engineering student acclaimed as ‘up-and-coming’ community leader
Posted: July 01, 2011
Arizona State University engineering doctoral degree candidate Elodie Billionniere is among those the Phoenix Business Journal has selected to recognize as “up-and-coming” young leaders in the greater Phoenix area.
The Journal’s annual “Forty Under 40” feature spotlights high achievers from ages 20 through 40 in local business, education, government, politics, science, social causes and other fields.
Billionniere will complete work this summer to earn a Ph.D. in computer science through the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering, one of ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
The Journal recognizes her for work she’s doing as a research specialist for ASU’s University Design Consortium, and for her consulting work in developing sensor technology for health care applications. The sensor project, called Reactive Mobile Computing, is one of the finalists in the ASU Innovation Challenge competition.
The Journal equally notes Billionniere’s involvement and leadership roles in a broad range of social and professional service organizations and projects.
