Dr. Jeremi London is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering Education at Virginia Tech. Using mixed methods designs, she advances the scholarship of impact; investigates impact-driven questions in the context of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI); and partners with colleagues in Industrial Engineering and Civil Engineering departments to foster instructional change. In short, London’s scholarship focuses on the complicated and dysfunctional relationship between what we know and what we do in engineering education.
Her NSF CAREER award, entitled Disrupting the Status Quo Regarding Who Gets to be an Engineer, is a project that blends her passion for impact, change and DEI. Her efforts have been supported by over $5.8M, and resulted in over 100 peer-reviewed articles, best paper awards, keynote addresses, national leadership, and meaningful student outcomes. Moreover, London’s scholarly approach to teaching courses like mixed methods designs, statistics, and use-inspired design led to the receipt of the 2017 Poly Faculty Teaching Excellence Award.
As an active member of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), she’ll lead the ASEE Year of Impact on Racial Equity (2021-2022) during her term as Chair of Commission on DEI. Prior to being faculty, she 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.
