Since joining Sandia in 2015, Babu Chalamala has diligently worked to improve the safety and reliability of grid storage technologies. In the long run, his efforts support the large-scale integration of grid storage and the modernization of the electricity infrastructure. In the short term, they have earned him election to the National Academy of Engineering.

On Feb. 6, the National Academy of Engineering announced its 2024 class of 114 new members and 21 international members, including Babu.

“It is humbling,” he said. “Being elected to the National Academies is a major career milestone, and you feel honored and happy to know that your engineering contributions have significant merit.”

Being elected to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature,” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.”
