NORWALK, Conn. —  

Xerox engineer Jeff Fowler and Alex Hegyi, a research scientist at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), A Xerox Company, will attend the National Academy of Engineering’s (NAE) 24th annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium, a meeting of the nation’s most promising young engineers.

Fowler and Hegyi are among only 84 engineers selected from across industry, academia and national labs to be part of the annual symposium Sept. 5 – 7 at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, Mass. This year, the group will discuss cutting edge developments in four areas: quantum computing, technology for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, resilient and reliable infrastructure, and the new medical field of theranostics, which combines targeted therapy based on specific targeted diagnostic tests.

Fowler is a senior engineer in Webster, N.Y. and was a key contributor in the development of the WorkCentre 5900 series and AltaLink b8000 drum cartridges. He now works with Xerox Printed Memory, devising algorithms, tests and readers for this new technology. Fowler is also an internal leader, instructor and coach for innovation and effective use of statistics. He holds 11 U.S. patents.

Hegyi is part of the research staff in the PARC Electronic Materials and Devices Lab. He invented and leads the development of PARC’s hyperspectral imaging technology, and he contributes to PARC’s efforts in thermochromic printing, flow cytometry and fiber-optic sensing.
