If the name seems familiar, it’s likely because Dr. Selim Suner has been frequently sought by newspapers and television stations in Rhode Island for his expertise on how local hospitals are handling the COVID-19 crisis.
As an employee of General Motors, Yue Qi was involved early with the Collaborative Research Laboratory partnership established between GM and Brown University. Continuing these collaborations with Brown colleagues as her career progressed from industry to academia, Qi’s return to campus in July as the newest engineering faculty member was eased by the familial feelings she already had for Brown Engineering.
A new study uses computer simulations to track airflows inside a car’s passenger cabin, providing potential strategies — some of them counterintuitive — for reducing the risk of transmitting airborne diseases.
As researchers explore faster data transfer rates in the terahertz range, new strategies for thwarting eavesdropping attempts by utilizing atmospheric effects were investigated by Malachi Hornbuckle ‘22, funded in part by a Nielsen summer fellowship.
Energy storage technology interests led mechanical engineer Elizabeth Healy ’21 to the Sheldon Lab. A DiMase Family Internship allowed her to develop those interests in an academic research setting, pushing the boundaries on next generation lithium-ion batteries.
Jayakumar Fellowship allows Andrew Duncombe ’21 to design computer architectures that make the implementation of complex computing processes, like neural networks, feasible for real-world applications.
In a conversation with leaders of Brown’s Carney Institute for Brain Science, two Brown neuroengineers explored how brain-computer interfaces promise to help restore movement in people with brain or spinal disorders.
An introductory fluid mechanics class in the School of Engineering couldn’t be taught in-person this fall, but a group of undergraduates worked over the summer to make sure hands-on lab experiments remain part of the course.
Novel coronavirus and its effect on University science laboratories has kept engineering student Portia Tieze from working on campus this summer — so she brought the lab to her apartment to continue her research.
Cloud Agronomics — a student and alumni venture launched with support from the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship — uses hyperspectral imaging to detect crop-borne diseases that destabilize food supplies and cost farmers billions.
Engineers build the future, and a Brown engineering education gives the tools to help build it. Engineering faculty have recorded some messages and well wishes for our graduates. We can't wait to see the accomplishments of the Class of 2020!
Brown biomedical engineering’s Ramisa Fariha, Sc.M. ’20 and Benjamin Wilks, Ph.D. ’20, along with John Santiago Ph.D. ’20 (molecular biology, cellular biology and biochemistry), have been named recipients of the 2020 Graduate Student Contribution to Community Life Awards.
Brown School of Engineering seniors Abbie Kohler ’20 and Greg Boudreau-Fine ’20 were named winners of the MedTech track last week at the 2020 Rhode Island Business Competition. Winners were announced Wednesday, May 13 at a virtual awards ceremony.
Brown School of Engineering professors Allan Bower and Kenny Breuer were among those honored with Brown University’s awards in teaching, sponsored by the Harriet W. Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning. Bower was honored with the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in Engineering, while Breuer was presented with the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Mentoring in Engineering.
Peter Damian Richardson, longtime Brown University faculty member who previously served as chairman of the executive committee of the center for biomedical engineering, passed away April 21 at age 84. Richardson taught at Brown for 57 years until his retirement in 2015, ultimately becoming professor emeritus of Engineering and Physiology.
