Prof. Silberstein is part of a winning Atkinson Venture Fund grant team. The interdisciplinary project is led by Prof. Rong Yang in the Chemical and Biological Engineering department at Cornell. This new ELMI project “Engineered Living Materials for Indoor Air Quality Control,” will use a hybrid approach of yeast and synthetic polymers to take on […]
We’re a bit behind on posting, so here’s a bunch of MMD lab updates in one. Congratulations to Shreya Gowda on another award! This time she’s won Aviation Week’s 20 Twenties – a worldwide competition for top aerospace bound students. We have two new collaborative papers out: “Microstructural evolution of polyurea under hydrostatic pressure” in […]
MMD lab undergraduate Shreya Gowda won the prestigious Brooke Owens fellowship. See here for the department spotlight on her.
Congratulations to Shreya Gowda for winning an Engineering Learning Initiatives undergraduate research award for her project “Dynamic Bond Approach to Improving Resin Transfer Molding Composites”!
Congratulations to Prof Silberstein for winning the Wolfgang Knauss Young Investigator Award from the Society of Experimental Mechanics (https://sem.org/awardsknauss). This award is given biannually by the SEM in recognition of an individual who has made significant research contributions to the broad field of experimental mechanics, with a focus on time dependent materials. Prof Silberstein’s award […]
Congratulations to Alwany for winning an Engineering Learning Initiatives undergraduate research grant! Alwany will be working on a high throughput approach to measuring the stiffness of gels.
Congratulations to Allison Rzepka for winning an Engineering Learning Initiatives undergraduate research grant for the semester! This grant will provide funding for her work on nonwovens and nonwoven composites this semester. Also, to Prof Silberstein for winning a College of Engineering excellence in undergraduate teaching award. http://www.mae.cornell.edu/mae/news/index.cfm?news_id=96725
Prof Silberstein wins the Department of Energy Early Career Award. See here for the Cornell Chronicle article.
Prof Silberstein won the CAREER award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for her proposed research project “Building a Mechanistic Understanding of Mechanochemically Adaptive Polymers.” This 5 year grant will enable the MMD lab to significantly advance the mechanics framework for mechanochemically enabled function in both rubbery and glassy materials. This work will lead to materials […]
Prof Silberstein kicked off the summer at the annual Society for Experimental Mechanics conference where she gave of talk on non-woven mechanics focusing on work by PhD student Naigeng Chen. Along with with first author Elizabeth Jones, Prof Silberstein was presented the Hetenyi Award for best paper in Experimental Mechanics from the previous year. That same week […]
