MMD lab goes to MRS

SES conference

Graduate students Steven Yang and Michael Buche and Prof Silberstein all presented at the annual Society of Engineering Science Conference at Washington University in St. Louis last week (no minivan this time).

MechanoChemBio Conference

The MMD lab road tripped up to Montreal last week for Multiscale Mechanochemistry and Mechanobiology 2019. This three day, one track, conference is focused on bringing together expertise and techniques in mechanochemistry and mechanobiology. Joy, Michael, Steven, and Yuval each presented posters.  

Another Summer of Conferences

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 […]

June Conference Bonanza

Graduate student Meenakshi Sundaram presented his work on interfacial mechanochemistry at the biannual International Conference on Self-Healing Materials (ICSHM). Professor Silberstein presented a range of the group’s mechanochemistry research at the Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM) annual conference, ICSHM, and ASME’s Applied Mechanics and Materials Conference (McMat).

New.MECH 2014

This past weekend half the MMD lab drove out to western Massachusetts for the 1 day annual mechanics conference New.MECH hosted this year by UMass Amherst. Graduate student Naigeng Chen presented his experimental work on non-wovens.


The MMD lab went to the winter Olympics of mechanics conferences last week – The United States National Congress on Theoretical & Applied Mechanics held in Lansing, MI. Held every four years in a different US city, this conference brings together theory oriented mechanicians from both the solids and fluids communities. Graduate students Meenakshi Sundaram […]

USNCTAM acceptance

Graduate students Naigeng Chen and Meenakshi Sundaram Manivannan accepted to speak at the 17th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical & Applied Mechanics.
