A Mississippi State University biomedical engineering faculty member recognized for his problem-based teaching methods will participate next month in a special National Academy of Engineering symposium. James Warnock, an associate professor of agricultural and biological engineering in the university’s James Worth Bagley College of Engineering, is among 65 selected to attend the Nov. 13-16 Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium in Irvine, Calif.
Warnock has taught a senior-level biomedical materials course at MSU since 2006.
Warnock completed a master’s degree in biochemical engineering and a doctorate in chemical engineering, both from the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom. He received a bachelor’s in biological sciences from the University of Wolverhampton, also in the UK.
Prior to the MSU faculty appointment, he completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Georgia Institute of Technology’s biological engineering department. His professional memberships include the Society of Heart Valve Disease and the Biomedical Engineering Society.
