Summer 2019

Welcome to the digital WPI Journal Summer 2019 edition.

What's this? … snow on our Summer cover? Well, when you’re Rachel Wilkins Thurman ’09 and you’re working with 9,000 miles of transmission lines across six states for ISO New England, the weather plays a significant factor in your work. So we decided to showcase that by photographing her after a late-season Nor'easter a few short months ago.

Read about her, as well as WPI professor Chrys Demetry ’88, chemistry major-turned-lawyer Lisa Lee ’08, and Beth Phalen ’85, president and general manager of data protection over at Dell EMC. All WPI alumni are impressive, and for the first time in this publication our main feature articles just happen to be about impressive females (well, why not!?).

This digital companion to our print issue has a lot more to offer, so take your time, click around the site, and settle in to learn more about WPI's rich community of students, faculty, and alumni.
