Guy Genin, at the McKelvey School of Engineering, has been elected to serve a three-year term on the Society of Engineering Science board of directors. The society strengthens the interface between engineering, science and math.
Researchers led by Fuzhong Zhang at the McKelvey School of Engineering developed a synthetic biology tool to comprehensively reveal gene regulatory networks in E. coli.
Emily Boyd, teaching professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science at the McKelvey School of Engineering, has been selected to receive the 2023 American Society of Mechanical Engineers Lakshmi Singh Early Career Leadership Award.
A National Science Foundation research traineeship led by William Yeoh at the McKelvey School of Engineering will prepare investigators at the convergence of computational, environmental and social sciences.
Research in the labs of Nate Huebsch and Guy Genin at the McKelvey School of Engineering creates software to enable experiments for learning how electrical and mechanical heart functions relate. Their study is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Researchers working with Randall Martin at the McKelvey School of Engineering quantified changes in global air pollution from fine particulate matter. They found that global PM2.5 exposure decreased steadily from 2011 to 2019, largely driven by rigorous air quality management in China and slower growth in other regions.
Atmospheric scientists led by Jian Wang, at the McKelvey School of Engineering, analyzed data from an Arctic expedition and found that blowing snow is a source of sea salt aerosols, impacting Arctic climate models.
Jessica Wagenseil, a professor of mechanical engineering and materials science and vice dean for faculty advancement in the McKelvey School of Engineering, has been elected a fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society.
Ramesh Agarwal, a professor of mechanical engineering & materials science, and Yixin Chen, a professor of computer science and engineering, both in the McKelvey School of Engineering, have been elected as fellows of the Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA), an interdisciplinary organization of AI industries.
Researchers working with Chuan Wang, at the McKelvey School of Engineering, have developed ink pens that allow individuals to handwrite flexible, stretchable optoelectronic devices on everyday materials including paper, textiles, rubber, plastics and 3D objects. The study is published in Nature Photonics.
