On December 7th, the LebNet Boston community hosted a meetup in the MIT Media Lab to recognize Fadel Adib, LebNet's 2022 Bireme Award recipient for Technologist of the Year. The event also featured a special tour of the MIT Media Lab, followed by a cozy dinner.
Fadel is an Associate Professor at MIT and Founder of Cartesian Systems. He is one of the youngest professors to get tenure at MIT. Fadel's groundbreaking work centers around new technologies to interconnect, sense, and perceive the physical world in ways that were not possible before. Before becoming a professor, his PHD thesis on seeing through walls led to a startup, Emerald Innovations, whose devices are used for remote health monitoring of thousands of patients.
“It’s heartwarming to be recognized by my own community. I’m grateful to the LebNet members who came to the event, and very happy I got to show them first-hand our inventions at MIT!" commented Fadel. "The event went on for 1.5 hours over time. It was a big success, celebrating Fadel’s accomplishments and energizing for the people in the Boston LebNet community!" said Habib Haddad, Managing Partner at E14 Fund and LebNet's newly elected Chairman.
Fadel is an inspiration to our LebNet organization, particularly our Early In Career and student communities. Congratulations Fadel Adib!!
