December 2014 - Victor Bright becomes IEEE Follow
Professor Bright recently became an IEEE Fellow for his contributions to micro- and nano-electromechanical systems. Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for elevation to IEEE Fellow. Less than 0.1% of voting members are selected annually for this member grade elevation. Professor Bright now is one of select few in the College of Engineering to be both a IEEE and ASME Fellow.
CU- Boulder Faculty Focus -Shelly Miller
Shelly Miller, associate professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder, seeks ways to improve urban air quality, inside buildings and outside. Miller teaches courses at CU-Boulder in environmental, mechanical and air pollution control engineering. Her research focus is urban air quality and the exposures and health effects of air pollution inside buildings and homes, as well as outside in communities and cities.
Spring, 2014 - Alum Uses Senior Design Experience in Restaurant Venture
Anthony Pigliacampo (MechEngr '02) was always the type of engineer who loved building things more than solving equations. While at CU-Boulder, he took every class he could that let him turn ideas into real things. One, taught by Jackie Sullivan and Larry Carlson at the ITLL, made a huge impact on him - students brainstormed product ideas, built prototypes and wrote business plans. "I am not a very artistic person, but creating products felt like art to me," says Pigliacampo...Read More
May 2014- Victor Bright - 2014 Butcher Seed Grant Award Winner
Professor Bright, along with PI Emily Gipson, and Co-PI Juliet Gopinath wrote one of this year's winning proposals on "optimized deep-brain imaging of activity in over a hundred neurons for imaging seizures"... Read More
Professor Xiobo Yin published a paper entitled "Nanoelectronics: Edgy look at 2-D molybdenum disulfide" on ScienceDaily.com. The team recorded the first observations of a strong nonlinear optical resonance along the edges of single layers of molybdenum disulfide that could be key to the use of this and similar 2-D semiconductors in future nanoelectronic devices.
