Spencer Fretwell will be working with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory under Dr. Stephan Friedrich, deputy leader of the laboratory’s Rare Event Detection group.
The Global Gas Flaring Explorer platform, which will be publicly available in early 2022, will deliver improved monitoring, visibility and transparency in flaring volume data.
PhD student Kyle Blount and HASS assistant professor Adrianne Kroepsch focused on collaborative problem-solving to protect water resources in the aftermath of wildfires upstream of Fort Collins, Colorado.
Colloidal chains that can mimic the swimming and crawling movements of real organisms could have have a significant benefit to the development of in vivo targeted drug delivery systems.
“We’re targeting the highest electric efficiency ever for something that’s powered by a fossil fuel – the world’s first 70 percent efficient natural-gas fueled power generation system,” said Robert Braun, professor of mechanical engineering. “It’s natural gas, but it’s clean and there are very few emissions other than carbon dioxide.”
Assistant Professor Kyle Leach is among 76 scientists at universities and national labs across the country to win the prestigious award this year
Teaching and Learning Librarian Brianna Buljung will lecture next year at China University of Mining and Technology.
“The mining industry is extremely concerned about the management of tailings, especially as companies increasingly rely on large-scale extraction of ever-lower grade ore deposits, a process that yields large volumes of waste materials,” said Priscilla Nelson, professor of mining engineering.
Post-processing – the labor intensive, detailed work that must occur after an additively manufactured part is printed before it is ready for use – currently accounts for 46 percent of the cost of metal 3D printing. Overall, metal additive manufacturing is projected to be a $25 billion a year industry by 2025.
Diego Gomez-Gualdron, assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, contributed with computational modeling to the Northwestern University-led project
