Celebrating Women Engineers
The University of Delaware is committed to the success of women in engineering. Here are just a few of the women who set the course for the engineers of today and tomorrow.
Kristi Kiick receives Leverhulme Visiting Professorship, Fulbright Award to study in the UK.
Grad student Patricia Hurley recognized for supporting first-generation college students, environmental causes.
ADVANCE Institute offers grants to empower female faculty.
This fourth-year mechanical engineering student excels in research and service.
Some of the bacteria that live in ponds, lakes and other freshwater environments grow faster during the day, even though they don’t take in sunlight as an energy source, according to research from UD.
Dawn Elliott is the inaugural recipient of the Orthopaedic Research Society’s Adele L. Boskey, PhD Award.
Megan Killian received the Early Career Award from the Journal of Orthopaedic Research.
Many engineers dream of working for NASA someday, and chemical engineer Elaine Stewart didn’t wait for graduation to start that mission.
Three faculty members in the College of Engineering were named to the Clarivate Analytics list of Highly Cited Researchers for 2018.
High school girls learned about engineering opportunities from undergraduate students and faculty.
Biomedical engineer recognized by Biomedical Engineering Society and University of Delaware.
Electrical engineering doctoral student Gowri Sriramagiri is a rising star in the field of solar energy.
Sunita Chandrasekaran, an assistant professor of computer and information sciences at the University of Delaware, is designing frameworks to adapt code to increasingly powerful systems.
Alumna and Google employee Priscilla Moraes will speak on Friday, Oct. 5, 2018 at 3:30 p.m. in Mitchell Hall, as part of the 55th Anniversary Celebration of the Department of Computer and Information Sciences.
UD received a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to help develop the quantum electronics of the future.
Moumita Bhattacharya, a doctoral student in computer science at UD, is one of just 200 top promising young computer scientists worldwide to be selected to participate in the sixth Heidelberg Laureate Forum.
UD engineering associate professor Arthi Jayaraman explains her approach.
At the 2018 Future Faculty Workshop, held at UD from July 18 to 20, faculty members from 17 universities mentored senior graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from across the country who plan to pursue careers as independent academic researchers in chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, and polymer science with a focus on soft materials and biomaterials.
This senior Civil Engineering major hopes her work will lead to the implementation of more natural methods to protect its shores, including planting marsh grass.
Undergraduate electrical engineering students Samuel Matylewicz and Jenny Defriece are working on vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology, a pioneering transportation technology developed at UD.
Chemical engineering sophomore Erin Hogan is helping to develop the next generation of NASA spacesuits fit for a mission to Mars.
Sarah Rooney won the Biomedical Engineering Teaching Award from the American Society for Engineering Education.
Buckley, an associate professor of mechanical engineering, was named to the American Society for Engineering Education’s “20 Under 40.”
A UD research team solved the 6 degree-of-freedom segmental power imbalance in human movement, an important mathematical discrepancy in biomechanics.
In laboratories across the University of Delaware, scholars are uncovering new insights about the human body: how a compound in red wine might protect joint cartilage from damage, how bad posture wears down the discs in your back, how your knee heals after an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear, and more.
Lori Pollock, Alumni Distinguished Professor of Computer and Information Sciences, received an Undergraduate Research Mentoring Award from the National Center for Women & Information Technology.
She is engineering membrane-wrapped nanoparticles for targeted ribonucleic acid (RNA) delivery to breast cancer cells.
The University of Delaware is establishing a new institute to accelerate research in data science, and bioinformatics pioneer Cathy Wu will serve as the founding director.
A modern-day version of the 20th-century space race, companies and governments worldwide are scurrying to build an what’s called an exascale computer, which could do a billion billion calculations per second. UD computer scientists team with Oak Ridge National Lab to program apps for next-generation supercomputer.
Essential information about medical discoveries is often buried inside the graphs, charts, photographs, and other images that illustrate research journals. Large-scale analysis of images along with the text could soon be possible, thanks to a $1.9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health.
UD is committed to the success of women in engineering. In honor of Women’s History Month, here are just a few of the women who set the course for the engineers of today and tomorrow.
