NMSU's College of Engineering welcomes Darryl Farber, assistant professor and research associate at the Larson Institute in the College of Engineering at Penn State University, to the Verge Fund Lecture Series in Innovation, Ventures and Entrepreneurship. His presentation entitled, "Strategic analysis for engineering systems risk management, innovation and leadership," will be held in Thomas and Brown Hall Room 104 at 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18.


Attendees can learn from an experienced researcher about the evolution, governance and ethics of complex large-scale socio-technical systems.

In addition to his assistant professor role, Farber serves as academic coordinator for the Strategic and Global Security Program, an Intelligence Community Center for Academic Excellence. He has served as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Managing the Atom Project at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University. He also has served as a visiting lecturer-project associate at the National University of Singapore. Farber co-founded a firm dedicated to the development of a mineral carbon dioxide sequestration technology called Carbon Trap Technologies.

Farber's scholarly work is focused on understanding the evolution, design, governance, ethics and leadership of complex, large-scale, integrated, socio-technical systems that have implications for security, environmental stewardship, economic competitiveness and social well-being. He earned a bachelor's degree with honors from Cornell University in agricultural, general plant science, a master's degree from Penn State University in agricultural economics and an interdisciplinary doctoral degree in technology management and policy.

The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Spyros Angelis at 575-646-2975 or loky@nmsu.edu.
