Hi! I'm Gilda A. Barabino. I'm the Dean and Berg Professor at The Grove School of Engineering at The City College of New York (CCNY).
I have appointments in Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education/CUNY School of Medicine.
Prior to joining CCNY, I was the Associate Chair for Graduate Studies and Professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory. At Georgia Tech, I also served as the inaugural Vice Provost for Academic Diversity.
Prior to my appointments at Georgia Tech and Emory, I rose to the rank of Full Professor of Chemical Engineering and served as Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at Northeastern University. I was noted investigator in the areas of sickle cell disease, cellular and tissue engineering, and race/ethnicity and gender in science and engineering.
I consult nationally and internationally on STEM education and research, diversity in higher education, policy, workforce development and faculty development.
In terms of my education, I received my B.S. degree in Chemistry from Xavier University of Louisiana and her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Rice University. I was a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).
I have an extensive record of leadership and service in the chemical and biomedical engineering communities. I am the immediate Past-President of BMES and current President of AIMBE.
I was recently awarded an honorary doctorate by my alma mater, Xavier University, in recognition of my life-long achievements. In addition, I have over a decade of experience in leading NSF initiatives for women and minority faculty, and I'm the founder and Executive Director of the National Institute for Faculty Equity.
