Bogdan RusuWhere are you from? Orange County, California What company/institution do you work for? EMERSON Process Management Where did you complete/are you completing your chemical engineering education? University of California Irvine . How many years have you been a member of AIChE? Five. Describe a recent challenge you managed, notable achievement, or obstacle you overcame at your job or in your work as an AIChE member. I had the pleasure of being the AIChE Student Chapter President at UC Irvine in 2013 and one challenge I had to face was growing our organization. Our membership base increased 200% during my presidency. What do you do to meet people in your field? I attend conferences and seminars in the area, and try to network as much as I can. There are two types of ChemEs… those who_______ and those who ________. Those who network and those who don't.

Bogdan_Rusu_TedxWhat’s the first thought you have when you wake up in the morning? Looking forward to learn something new

If your college had offered a class on real-life skills for the aspiring ChE, what would you want them to teach? How to manage conflicts within a team If you weren’t a ChE what would you most want to be? Wingsuit Pilot Do you have any advice for current or future young professionals reading ChEnected? I would like to invite ChemEs to start networking and get to know as many people as possible in their field. There is always something new to learn. This helps with getting broader knowledge as well as career advancement. You can contact Bogdan through his LinkedIn profile. Intrigued by the Tedx photo above? Check out Bogdan's presentation here.
