Congratulations to Meenakshi Manivannan for successfully defending his PhD this past Friday! Meenakshi will be the first MMD lab PhD graduate. His dissertation “Multiscale Modeling and Design of Mechanochemically Active Interfaces” covered his last four years of research using computational and analytical tools to discover the key physics governing mechanophore behavior in composites.
The MMD lab hosted a University U workshop as part of the annual 4-H Career Explorations program on Cornell’s campus. Six groups of rising 8th and 9th graders from around NY State rotated through our 80 minute session “Breaking Bonds and Changing Colors: A Mechanical Engineering Take on Chemistry”. Students acted out different types of […]
