Randall Martin, the Raymond Tucker Distinguished Professor at the McKelvey School of Enginering, has been awarded the Atmospheric Sciences Ascent Award from the American Geophysical Union, recognizing his excellence in research and leadership in the atmospheric and climate sciences.
Fangqiong Ling, assistant professor of energy, environmental and chemical engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering, has been recognized by the International Water Association and the International Society for Microbial Ecology.
Lan Yang, the Edwin H. & Florence G. Skinner Professor of Engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering, has been elected a 2020 Fellow of the American Physical Society.
Four and a half feet — as long as debaters are at least this far apart, with airflow directed back at them, the risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2 is minimal to none, say researchers at Washington University in St. Louis.
Brendan Juba at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis will take a close look at relationships and generalization in artificial intelligence with a National Science Foundation CAREER award.
A team of engineers and computer scientists at the McKelvey School of Engineering, along with multi-disciplinary collaborators at other institutions, will work over the next two years to prepare a proposal for one of the National Science Foundation’s National Artificial Intelligence (AI) Research Institutes.
One locust is harmless, a swarm can be devastating. A new multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary project involving a researcher at Washington University in St. Louis aims to understand how swarms arise — and how to combat them.
Lithium ion batteries that shouldn’t short circuit often do. Now researchers at the McKelvey School of Engineering have figured out why, and they have devised a straightforward way to tell if and when that will happen for individual batteries.
A team of engineers from the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis conducted a feasibility study for electrochemical “refilling” of lithium-ion batteries into the spent electrodes to regenerate useful compounds.
With a grant from the USDA, a researcher at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis works toward a customizable kill switch — a genetic circuit that could tell bacteria to self-destruct.
