My thesis entitled The Ballad Collection is a choreographic investigation of the multiplicity and complexity of ways a black dancing body can be seen and represented. The power of art, including dance, is that it forms cultural images and references…

"0"

75929.tif
Commercial jets may occasionally lose power in all engines. In such an emergency, the aircraft generates 0 thrust, and can gain 0 altitude. Thus, the flight crew has a single chance for landing, and 0 room for pilot error. My dissertation study aims…

"Bend it": Membrane sculpting by F-BAR domain lattices

Yu_Hang.jpg
The image shows how a particular protein, named F-BAR domain, works in teams to bend flat cellular membrane into tubules. To generate organelles, eukaryotic cells sculpt their membranes into compartments, often employing proteins as chaperones,for…

"We lost both engines due to bird strike!"

Avrenli_Kivanc.jpg
In January 2009, a twin-engine jet ingested multiple Canada geese shortly after take-off from New York. The aircraft underwent total loss of power, but was successfully ditched on the Hudson River. In the near future, total loss of power due to bird…

This image was generated to show the 2 dimension case of Multiple Phase Transitions in Long Range First Passage Percolation, which is a random process on a complete graph. The growth of in the percolation can be seen as an infection, whose behavior…

3D Printed Pop Heart A Fusion of Engineering, Medicine, and Art

Raman_Ritu.tiff
The burgeoning field of 3D printing centers on the idea of building three-dimensional objects from digital models. While conventional manufacturing approaches rely on modifying a base material via subtractive processes such as drilling or cutting, 3D…

3D Printing Smart Bandages

Raman_Ritu.tif
3D printing has revolutionized engineering design and manufacturing in recent years by enabling the rapid fabrication of complex 3D structures. In stereolithography, a subtype of 3D printing, photosensitive liquid polymers are patterned into solid…

A 3D look inside the future of batteries

Gonzalez_Joseph.tif
Silicon (Si) and Tin (Sn) particles are highly attractive materials to use within composite electrodes of lithium ion (Li ) batteries because of their greater ability to hold and store lithium ions, as opposed to the commercially used graphite…
