Jeremi S. London, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Engineering Education Department at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). London is a mixed methods scholar and directs the RISE (Research’s Impact on Society and Education) Research Group. The RISE research agenda includes a range of studies focused on how scholarship influences societal needs, in general, and engineering education, in particular. Research topics include an emphasis on the impact of publicly-supported research, the role of research and practice in broadening participation of underrepresented groups in engineering and CS, and instructional change in engineering education. Her research has been externally supported by more than $6.5M and had led to recognition in a variety of forms (e.g., best paper awards at domestic and international conferences, a keynote address, influence on national priorities).  For London, research and teaching are closely connected. Her scholarly approach to teaching courses like mixed methods research design, engineering statistics, and use-inspired engineering design has led to positive student outcomes and the receipt of the 2017 Poly Faculty Teaching Excellence Award. London is also committed to advancing STEM education through service. As an active member of the engineering education community, London served as the Secretary-Treasurer of the Educational Research and Methods (ERM) Division and currently serves as the Treasures of the Minorities in Engineering Division (MIND) within the American Society for Engineering Education. Prior to becoming a faculty member, London worked at the National Science Foundation, GE-Healthcare, and Anheuser Busch. She holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Industrial Engineering, and Ph.D. in Engineering Education, all from Purdue University.
