All are invited to join the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Initiative for lab tours or research talks as we turn a spotlight on research by women faculty in CSE.

Lab tour: Assistant Professor Samira Azarin
Monday, Oct. 17, 2016
1:30-2:30 p.m.
Amundson Hall, Room 287

The Azarin lab in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science focuses on engineering cells and tissues to study the function of healthy and diseased organs. Hear about some of the applications of the work in repairing the heart and in developing new cancer treatments. You will also see some examples of the tools used including microscopy, cell culture, and 3D printing. 

Research Talk: Assistant Professor Diana Negoescu
Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2016
10-11 a.m.
Mechanical Engineering Building, Room 221

Professor Diana Negoescu, Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, will share her research on mathematical modeling for improving public health interventions in diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis, or multiple sclerosis.

Research Talk: Associate Professor Jasmine Foo
Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2016
3-4 p.m.
Vincent Hall, First Floor Lounge

Professor Jasmine Foo, School of Mathematics, will discuss her research on how math modeling can be used to design better cancer treatment strategies.

Lab Tour: Professor Theresa Reineke
Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016
1:30-2:15 p.m.
Kolthoff Hall, Room 386

Tour all the research labs of Professor Theresa Reineke, Department of Chemistry, in the synthesis and biological studies of polymers. Meet many of the postdocs and graduate students contributing to this research.

Lab Tour: Professor Ellen Longmire
Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016
3:30-4 p.m.
Akerman Hall, Room 30

Professor Ellen Longmire, Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics, will provide a tour of lab facilities for experimental research in fluid dynamics including wind tunnel and water channel.

Lab Tour: Ph.D. candidates Nikki Mohapp Hanna Temme
Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016
10-11 a.m.
Civil Engineering Building, Room 780B

Ph.D. candidates Nikki Mohapp and Hanna Temme, Department of Civil, Environmental and Geo- Engineering, will talk about their team’s research and the research in Professor Paige Novak’s lab. The Novak lab has a wide range of projects, including the effect of perfluorinated chemicals on bacteria, biodegradation of chlorinated pollutants, and generating energy from wastewater. In the lab, learn how to measure chemicals by gas chromatography, monitor anaerobic digesters, and grow bacteria.

Lab Tour: Professor Lorraine Francis 
Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016
2:30-3 p.m.
Amundson Hall, Room 406

Join Professor Lorraine Francis, Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, for a tour of research labs devoted to science and engineering of coating and printing processes, including inkjet printing, aerosol jet printing, 3D printing, spin coating, dip coating, roll-to-roll coating, and nanoimprinting. Learn about a variety of characterization tools, including those that monitor the stress and drying of coatings and the properties of liquids (surface tension, wetting, as well as microscopes, and high speed cameras for visualizing processes.

Research Talk: Associate Professor Alena Talkachova 
Friday, Oct. 21, 2016
12:20-1:10 p.m.
