Dr. Jeremi London
Dr. Jeremi London is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering Education at Virginia Tech. As Director of the RISE (Research’s Impact in Society & Education) Research Group, she leads an interdisciplinary team of researchers in conducting mixed methods studies on: the impact of engineering education research; broadening participation of underrepresented groups in engineering and computer science; and assessing engineering learning in augmented environments. Her research activities have been externally-supported by more than $6.5M and has led to recognition in a variety of forms (e.g., best paper awards at domestic and international conferences, keynote addresses, influence on national policy). For London, teaching and research are closely connected. Her scholarly approach to teaching courses like mixed methods research designs, 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. She has served as Treasurer of the Minorities in Engineering Division (MIND) and Secretary-Treasurer of the Educational Research & Methods Division of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). She is the incoming Chair of the ASEE Commission on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and member of the ASEE Taskforce on Journals Integration. 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.
