Susan Tousi, BS E SC ’91, was announced Vice President of Eastman Kodak Company in December 2009. Susan joined Kodak in 2003 as Manager for the consumer inkjet research and development program, leading a team from San Diego, CA; Rochester, NY; and Singapore. Her group has generated a substantial portfolio of patents in inkjet and related technologies.

In 2007, recognizing Susan’s innovative thinking, Kodak appointed her General Manager of Consumer Inkjet Systems. This new line of inkjet printers is revolutionizing the inkjet industry, reducing the cost of ink, and producing high quality, long-lasting prints.

As a student, Susan was President of the Society of Women Engineers in her senior year and was the Class of ’91 Commencement Student Marshal for the College of Engineering. Susan shares her life accomplishments with her husband and three sons, ages 12, 10 and 2.

ESM Congratulates alumna Susan Tousi!

Christiane Pheil
Christiane Pheil, undergraduate student in Engineering Science, was among one of the 6 students from Penn State University to be named 2010 Women’s Collegiate All-American athletes in Rugby.

This honor is bestowed upon the best women collegiate rugby players in the country and recognizes a high standard of performance throughout the year. The goals of the nomination process were to ensure that all athletes in all divisions had an opportunity to be viewed, whether their teams made the playoffs or not, and to ensure that consistent information was submitted for each nominated athlete.

Each athlete will receive a certificate commemorating the honor. The Athletic Director for each athlete's school will also receive a certificate to recognize the significant honor achieved by a rugby student-athlete at that school.

The All-American touring squad will represent the eighth team at the event and will play against the senior women's territorial sides, promoting the development of these young and talented athletes.
