Dr. Alisha Sarang-Sieminski is an associate dean of the faculty and professor of engineering at Olin College. They have a BS in chemical engineering from MIT, a PhD in bioengineering from University of Pennsylvania, and did their postdoctoral work in the Biological Engineering Division at MIT. Their work has been funded through a predoctoral fellowship from the Whitaker foundation, a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award post-doctoral fellowship from the NSF, and research funding for work at Olin from both the NSF and the NIH.

Dr. Sarang-Sieminski is passionate about undergraduate education, using design to make a difference in people’s lives, and bringing an equity and access lens to engineering education.  Since coming to Olin, they have enjoyed developing a number of new Bioengineering courses including Topics in Bioengineering and Biomedical Device Design. They are also active in efforts at Olin and in the larger engineering education community to advance equity and inclusion efforts within curricula and educational communities.
