christina bishopChristina Bishop Jackson (BS ’05, PhD ’10) is being honored as an up-and-coming young engineer during Engineers Week 2011, Feb. 20-26.

This is the 60th anniversary of E-Week. The 14 “New Faces of Engineering” honorees were featured in a full-page USAToday promotion on Monday, Feb. 21.

Jackson, 27, was nominated by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. She is a quality engineering manager for Callidus Technologies by Honeywell in Tulsa.

Jackson’s doctoral research at TU focused on nanobatteries, and she worked with Chemistry Chair Dale Teeters.

“Christina worked with me in the area of enhanced battery performance. Her work was very novel, and she discovered aspects of battery technology that were not previously known,” Teeters said. “She was an outstanding graduate student whose ability to work with others and establish a team approach to research allowed her to accomplish her exemplary research results.”

Jackson has strong ties to TU: Her mother, Kathryn (Glover) Bishop (BS ’75); father, Gene Bishop (BS ’77); grandmother Joan Bell (MA ’67, PhD ’75); grandfather Joe Glover (MS ’54); and husband, Glen Jackson (BS ’05) are all TU alumni.
