Under a $1 million National Science Foundation grant, Timothy Mueller and Chao Wang are teaming up in search of a new breed of catalysts.
Ian McCue, a graduate student in Dr. Jonah Erlebacher’s research group, was recently awarded the MRS Graduate Student Award for a presentation on bridging scales in heterogeneous materials at the MRS 2014 Fall Meeting in Boston.
Through a series of initiatives directed at local K-12 schools that have been implemented piece by piece over the years, the university is directly engaged with the urban, and occasionally troubled, community that surrounds its campus.
When studying extremely fast reactions in ultrathin materials, two measurements are better than one. A new research tool invented by researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Johns Hopkins University and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) captures information about both temperature and crystal structure during extremely fast reactions in thin-film materials.
Please join us in congratulating Professors Michael Falk (MS&E) and Michael Shields (CE) on their National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant, which was awarded on September 15, 2014.
Jun Ding, a PhD student working with Prof. Evan Ma, has demonstrated a structure-property correlation in metallic amorphous solids. This was achieved in collaboration with Prof. Michael Falk’s group in our department. Their findings were recently published in the Proceedings for the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
Gregory Wiedman, Robert Ireland, Nuala Del Piccolo, and Anindya Roy will provide undergraduates with an introduction to cutting-edge engineering research and demonstrate how that research impacts society.
Robert Ireland attended the Summer Institute on Sustainability and Energy hosted by the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Dawnielle Farrar-Gaines has been selected as the recipient of a Technical Innovation-Industry award from the 2014 Women of Color Technology Awards.
