Welcome to the ECLIPSE Class of 2022-2023

The 2022-2023 Early Career Leadership Intern Program to Serve Engineering (ECLIPSE) is underway – we would like to congratulate and welcome this year's interns.

The ECLIPSE program promotes and recognizes the value of long-term leadership development and diversity among its members. ECLIPSE is a commitment to investing in the careers of high-potential early career members. Interns learn their way around ASME with a dedicated advisor where each intern is matched with a senior volunteer coach within their area of interest at ASME. Interns attend meetings and participate in workshops and training sessions to build leadership and management skills, which will serve them in their professional and personal lives. There is a wide range of opportunities for interns to network among themselves and with senior Society officers to see how they can incorporate the ASME experience into their career development.

We are delighted to welcome the following interns who will serve the various ASME business units:

She is a Quality Assurance Chief at Cimtas Pipe, a fabrication shop of the Cimtas Pipe Group which provides engineering, procurement, and fabrication of power, process, and OEM piping systems to power, oil & gas, chemical industries. Her responsibility is to maintain the quality assurance system at the factory while implementing various standard requirements such as ISO 9001, ASME NQA-1, API Q1, PED 2014/68/EU, EN 13480, EN 3834, ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes, ISO 17025 as well as project-specific customer requirements. She received a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from İstanbul Bilgi University in 2016. She joined ASME as a member in 2017 while working for ASME nuclear certification and was selected as a Vice-Chair for the Turkey Section in 2021. She aims to increase the activities of the Turkey Section for both industry and students' involvement. She has been working with different certification bodies while conducting audits and has experience with conformity assessment bodies. She also holds several auditor certificates and hopes to learn how organizations such as ASME execute assessments and generate standards beneficial to various industries. 
Hind Hajjar is the 2022-23 ECLIPSE intern for the Board of Governors. She holds a B.E. in Mechanical Engineering from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon and a M.Sc. in the same field from North Carolina State University. She is the Global Repair Productivity Leader for Combustion Hardware at GE Power. Prior to that, Hind was a Lead Gas Turbine Product Service Engineer focusing on supporting customers, resolving combustion related challenges and leading fleet-wide root cause analyses. Hind graduated from the Edison Engineering Development program at GE Power in July 2019 having completed 5 rotations: Generator Product Service, Outage Tooling & Productivity, Combustion Design, Application Engineering and Gas Turbine Product Service. She started her journey at GE Power as a Commercial Intern in 2015 at the Beirut office before officially joining GE in 2017 as an Edison Engineer. Hind has been active in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers since her undergrad years, serving as student section secretary, vice chair and regional student chair for Middle East & Africa, earning her the Charles T. Main Student Leadership Gold Medal award. Most recently, Hind went back to volunteering with ASME under the SECD with ECEPC and EFSC committees, currently EFx lead supporting vet student section applications to host EFx and providing guidance alongside ASME staff until the day of the event.
Lingnan Lin is the 2022-23 ECLIPSE intern for the Technology & Engineering Communities Sector. He is a research scientist in the Building Energy and Environment Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), where he conducts research related to thermal and fluid engineering, including two-phase flow and heat transfer, pressure losses in pipe and fittings, and thermal energy storage using phase change materials. Previously at NIST, he was a postdoctoral research associate (2018–2021) and a visiting graduate student (2016–2018) in the same division. In 2020, he received the NIST Distinguished Associate Award for “Advancing the measurement and modeling sciences of heat transfer and thermophysical properties of low-global-warming-potential refrigerants and energy materials”. Lingnan obtained his Ph.D. from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University and B.E. from the University of Science and Technology of China, both in Mechanical Engineering. Besides being a member of ASME, he is a Junior Member of International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) Commission B1 and a member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
Guha Manogharan is the 2022-23 ECLIPSE intern for the Public Affairs and Outreach Sector. He currently holds the Emmert H. Bashore Faculty Development Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University – University Park. He heads the Systems for Hybrid-Additive Processing Engineering – The SHAPE Lab, which focuses on digital additive and hybrid manufacturing with an emphasis on biomedical, defense and aerospace applications. Guha received his Ph.D. (2014) and M.S. (2009) from North Carolina State University. He was awarded the 2021 ASTM Emerging Young Professional Award, 2020 NSF CAREER Award, 2018 International Outstanding Young Researcher in Freeform and Additive Manufacturing Award (FAME Jr), 2017 Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ Yoram Koren Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award and the 2016 Outstanding Young Investigator by Manufacturing and Design Division of Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Michael Zhou is the 2022-23 ECLIPSE intern for the ASME Petroleum Division. He is an Asset Integrity Engineer at Gibson Energy, a Canadian-based liquids infrastructure company that connects customers to various geographical areas. His main responsibilities involve developing and implementing both the Pipeline Integrity Management Program and Terminal Piping Integrity Management Program utilizing the life-cycle risk management approach. He received his bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 2013, and completed his graduate studies in Mechanical Engineering (M.Eng. specializing in pipeline engineering) with the University of Calgary in 2017.
