Dwight Hunter (Ph.D. '11, materials science and engineering).

Department of Materials Science and Engineering alumnus Dwight Hunter (Ph.D. ’11, formerly advised by Professor Ichiro Takeuchi, was prominently featured in the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering’s (NACME) 2011 Annual report, “Resilience: Ensuring U.S. Competitiveness in a Flat World.”

NACME, whose vision is to shape “an engineering workforce that looks like America,” supports U.S. competitiveness by helping to increase the number of Latino, African America, and Native American men and women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics education and careers.

Hunter, who currently works at Intel, is one of four “resilient members of the NACME Continuum” profiled in the report. The piece tells the story of Hunter’s journey from an aspiring young scientist in Jamaica to a doctor of materials science and engineering and corporate research engineer in the U.S., overcoming a number of financial challenges in the process. His studies at the Clark School were supported in part by NACME’s Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Minority Ph.D. Program.
