Pedro Reis' work focuses on the mechanics of large deformations of thin structures, towards devising novel functionalities over a wide range of length scales, from the very small to the very large.
PhD candidate Thomas Ober discusses his thesis research: the development of a basic tool set and framework for using microfluidic devices to characterize viscoelastic liquids at large deformation rates.
PhD candidate Thomas Milnes explains his thesis research: the development of novel hardware and software techniques -- such as "digital aperture" and "programmable deconvolution" -- for the field of light field imaging.
Professor Gang Chen has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious honorary societies.
Alberto Rodriguez and his team have built a robotic arm that can assess a bin of random objects and determine the best way to grip and sort the item, offering new solutions for warehouse sorting or clearing debris.
It is the ongoing and generous support of the MechE community that allows the Department to continue its cutting-edge research and attract the best and brightest students and faculty. From student fellowships, excellence funds, faculty chair endowments, and lab support, there are a multitude of ways to support the Department of Mechanical Engineering in its mission to change the world for the better.
