DR ANTHONY Ng'oma, research associate and Radio-over-Fiber manager at Corning incorporated, has been named the 2013 Scientist of the Year by Black Engineer of the Year Awards and Minorities in Research Science.

Dr Ng'oma, a Zambian based in the United States, was selected from a pool of outstanding technology leaders from across the United States - from well-known institutions and Fortune 500 companies, which typically include institutions such as NASA, and companies such as IBM, General Motors, The Boeing Company, Chrysler and others.

The review committee was so incredibly impressed by Dr Ng'oma's technical achievements and contributions that he was the first nominee for all Minorities in Research Science (MIRS) categories (including Professional Achievement, Most Promising Scientist and Outstanding Technical Contribution), thereby earning him the Scientist of the Year Award - one of the most prestigious and competitive honours in science and technology management.

By winning the scientist of the year award, Dr. Ng'oma joins the exclusive club of Emerald honourees, who include some of the most creative and innovative professionals in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

Dr Ng'oma will be honoured with the MIRS award at the 28thBEYA STEM Global Competitive Conference, convening in Washington, DC February 6 - 8, 2014, at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park.

The BEYA STEM Global Competitive Conference attracts the upper echelon in the STEM disciplines from academia, government and the private sector across the United States.
