We love when we get to reconnect with our alumni. Dr. Amitai Bin-nun, PhD Physics from University of Pennsylvania and SISE 2012 alumni, returned to UIC on April 6 to speak in the LAS 496 Sustainable Mobility class, a new course spearheaded by SISE 2011 alumni Bryan Tillman!

Amitai took a turn from the "normal' physics route. He now lives in Washington, DC where he is Director of the Autonomous Vehicle Initiative at Securing America's Future Energy where he leads "SAFE's efforts to accelerate the adoption of autonomous vehicles and realizing the social, economic, and energy security benefits of autonomous vehicle technology." We're so proud of Amitai and all his great work. Look for him at SISE 2017. ;)
