Figueroa elected Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineering

Associate Professor Linda Figueroa (CEE) has been elected a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineering. Figueroa’s primary area of focus throughout her 30 years in environmental engineering has involved wastewater reclamation and mine water treatment. In the last decade, her work has focused on synthesizing knowledge to develop and demonstrate sustainable technologies. She has served the profession through her position at Mines and national/international efforts. She had a pivotal role in the establishment of environmental engineering programs at Mines. In 2013, she received distinguished service awards from the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professor and from the Society for Mining Metallurgy and Exploration Environmental Division. She also served as an advisor to the International Atomic Energy Agency from 2009 to 2013. She is co-editor of a book on Mitigation of Metal Mining Influenced Water and has more than 100 technical publications in mine water and wastewater treatment.            Announcement

Matlock selected to receive 2015 Henry Clifton Sorby Award

University Emeritus Professor David Matlock (MME) has been selected to receive the 2015 Henry Clifton Sorby Award by the International Metallographic Society. The award, presented annually, recognizes lifetime achievement in the field of metallurgy -- 25 years or more of dedication to research, teaching, or laboratory sales and service. Matlock presented a technical lecture at the annual IMS meeting in early August in Portland, Ore. Matlock started teaching at in 1972, and has served as director of the Advanced Steel Processing and Products Research Center. More than 400 publications, primarily related to microstructures and mechanical properties with an emphasis on steels, bear his name. Announcement

Carr receives award from National Science Foundation

Professor Lincoln Carr (PH) has received an award from the National Science Foundation for “Open-System Quantum Many-Body Entangled Dynamics of Ultracold Molecules.” The open source code supported by this grant  has been downloaded nearly 1,000 times with more than 50 groups making active use of the code. This code treats strongly correlated entangled quantum dynamics, and the renewal below is to extend our methods to treat open quantum systems, where in fact almost nothing is known beyond a reservoir coupled to one or two qubits/quantum dots and a cavity mode.  Announcement

Braun develops novel storage method combining recent advances in reversible solid oxide electrochemical cells

Associate Professor Robert Braun (ME) and collaborators developed a novel storage method combining recent advances in reversible solid oxide electrochemical cells with sub-surface storage of CO2 and CH4, thereby enabling large-scale electricity storage with a round-trip efficiency exceeding 70 percent and an estimated storage cost around 3 ¢ kW-1 h-1, i.e., comparable to pumped hydro and much better than previously proposed technologies. The results are published in the latest issue of “Energy & Environmental Science.” Announcement
