Inaugural Professorial Lecture: Noah Cowan
May 14 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Inaugural Professorial Lecture: Noah Cowan @ Mason Hall Auditorium

Noah Cowan will deliver a lecture as part of the Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series. Cowan is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

Neuroscience in The Matrix

Understanding how the nervous system encodes and processes sensory information, transforms it into meaningful intermediate representations in the brain, and computes motor output involves decoding a complex closed-loop control system. Professor Cowan will present research devoted to developing and applying ideas in engineering to decode closed-loop neuromechanical control in animals, including humans.


The Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series began in 1993 as a way to honor newly promoted full professors. Professor Giddens, originator of the series, served as the fifth dean of Engineering at Johns Hopkins.

HEMI Extreme Arts Exhibit: Symmetry & Fracture (Works by Jenna Frye)
Sep 27 2019 @ 4:30 pm – Jan 10 2020 @ 4:30 pm
HEMI Extreme Arts Exhibit: Symmetry & Fracture (Works by Jenna Frye) @ Milton S. Eisenhower Library, Q Level

HEMI research asks fascinating questions about what happens to materials under extreme conditions. Much of HEMI’s research can’t be perceived without powerful scanning technologies, let alone touched. Touch and perception, however, are both essential to how artists and designers learn and understand the world.

Symmetry and Fracture offers a way to physically connect with the complex research ideas of HEMI labs through hands-on exploration of mineral crystal systems and the grain boundaries of metallic materials.

You are invited to playfully investigate and decide for yourself where or if boundaries lie between art and science.
