|Dr. Tiee Nominated for Award|
Dr. Joe Tiee Wins Asian American Engineer of the Year Award!
2/25/03--On March 22, Dr. Joe Tiee, accompanied by several other individuals from Los Alamos, attended the black tie Engineer of the Year award banquet in Dallas. According to Lisa Gutierrez of Los Alamos ADA, "the entire event was first class and organizations represented included Boeing, Raytheon, IBM, and Lockheed Martin. LANL was the only National Lab represented, which led to some great discussions with other attendees. LANL, along with all the sponsors, received some individual recognition." Over 500 people attended the event.
1/27/03--Two weeks ago, in the story below, we announced that Dr. Tiee had been nominated for the Asian American Engineer of the Year Award. On Friday, March 24th, Dr. Tiee was informed by the Award Committee of the CIE that he had been selected to receive the award.
Dear Dr. Tiee,
On behalf of the award committee, it is a distinct pleasure to inform you that you have been selected to receive one of the 2003 Asian American Engineer of the Year Awards at the National Engineers Week Award Banquet co-sponsored and hosted by the Chinese Institute of Engineers (CIE)/USA in Dallas, Texas. Your technical achievements throughout your career will be the guiding lights for all future generations of engineers especially those of Asian descent to aspire and emulate. The presentation of awards is the highlight of The National E-Week 2003 Asian American Engineer of the Year Award Banquet that will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2003 from 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm at the Renaissance Dallas North Hotel in Dallas.
Our warmest congratulations,
Charles S. Liang and George Wan
2003 National E-Week AAEOY Award Banquet, CIE/USA
1/10/03--Chemistry Division’s Dr. Joe Tiee has been nominated by Los Alamos National Laboratory for the Asian American Engineer of the Year Award, which is presented by the Society of Chinese-American Engineers (CIE/USA).
Dr. Tiee is currently a team leader in Chemistry Division’s Physical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy group (C-PCS). He has made research contributions in transient species spectroscopy and reaction kinetics, multiphoton excitation and dissociation dynamics, non-linear frequency conversion, VUV photochemistry, submarine communication laser development, femto-second laser development, sub-picosecond laser photochemistry, relativistic atomic beam diagnostics, and remote sensing using various active and passive multi-spectral and hyperspectral systems. Dr. Tiee has published over 80 technical papers related to these fields.
Dr. Tiee has also served as a technical project coordinator for Los Alamos National Laboratory lidar projects in 1992 to 1993, and he was a member of four teams that received LANL Distinguished Performance Awards and one R&D 100 Award for lidar-related work. Additionally, he served as the Team Leader for a major DOE effort in lidar development. Currently he is a system engineer on a remote ultra-low light imaging project. Dr. Tiee received his Ph.D. in quantum electrical engineering in 1979 from the University of Southern California.
Dr. Tiee will be traveling to the 2003 Asian American Engineer of the Year Award Banquet in Dallas Texas, where the award will be presented to the winning engineer at a back-tie event. The award and banquet are part of a series of events for national engineers week, 2003. For more information on the CIE and National Engineers Week, visit http://www.cie-usa.org/cie-eweek.php.
