DuPont R&D leader named American Academy of Arts and Sciences Fellow

WILMINGTON, Del., May 12, 2003 The American Academy of Arts and Sciences today announced that DuPont vice president of Central Research and Development, Uma Chowdhry, has been named among its newly elected Fellows and Foreign Honorary Members.

Secretary General of the United Nations Kofi Annan, journalist Walter Cronkite, three Nobel Prize winners and four Pulitzer Prize winners are among the 2003 class of 187 Fellows and 29 Foreign Honorary members elected this year to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

"It gives me great pleasure to welcome these outstanding and influential individuals to the nation's oldest and most illustrious learned society," said American Academy president Patricia Meyer. "Election to the American Academy is an honor that acknowledges the best of all scholarly fields and professions. Newly elected Fellows are selected through a highly competitive process that recognizes those who have made preeminent contributions to their disciplines."

Chowdhry, 55, is honored for her accomplishments in the field of engineering sciences and technologies. According to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Chowdhry was appointed "for engineering contributions in the fields of catalysis/surface science, electronic ceramics, high temperature superconductors, and electronic packaging that have been of great value to the engineering community and her company. As a senior member of a global company, she serves as a mentor and role model for women in technical positions."

"I am honored and, quite frankly, humbled to be a part of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and its storied history," Chowdhry said. "In my career, I have been fortunate to work side-by-side with the best and brightest people the world has to offer. DuPont has provided me unique opportunities to grow and flourish both personally and professionally. This honor is a tribute to the outstanding people, engineering, and science of DuPont."
