October 19, 2020 - MechSE's João Ramos and CS's associate professor Kris Hauser were recently awarded a three-year NSF grant to investigate the teleoperation of wheeled humanoid robots.
October 18, 2020 - On October 15, Professor Bob Root-Bernstein presented “Transformative Teaching and Learning: Arts, Crafts and Design in Engineering, Science and Medical Education” as a Zoom lecture hosted by the MechSE Department and Associate Teaching Professor Leon Liebenberg.
October 15, 2020 - MechSE professors Placid Ferreira, Srinivasa Salapaka, William King, Chenhui Shao, and Narayana Aluru are part of a collaborative effort to develop manufacturing systems that can better withstand sudden demand changes.
October 9, 2020 - MechSE graduate student Daniel Hsieh was among 52 U.S. students to receive the DOE's Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program award.
October 7, 2020 - A recent crochet project Professor Wagoner Johnson participated in is related to an NSF grant she has been leading on coral reef recovery and propagation.
October 6, 2020 - To speed up the vesicle transport process for drug and therapeutic delivery, Jie Feng and colleagues devised a system that slightly alters the outside environment to cause spontaneous movement of the vesicle in a given direction. Their technique is called diffusiophoresis. This could improve both the amount of drug delivered and the time over which it is delivered, which are crucial for effectiveness.
