This summer, students at Oyster River Middle School in Durham got a close-up look at real-world research when their intern, Berkley Sadana, accompanied Diane Foster, UNH associate professor of mechanical engineering, on a trip to the Netherlands to study how waves cause beach erosion.
Three UNH faculty members will explore energy from the ocean, manufacturing on a tiny scale, and speedier computer planning, thanks to prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The grants, totaling nearly $1.3 million over five years, went to assistant professors Yannis Korkolis and Martin Wosnik of the mechanical engineering department and Wheeler Ruml of the computer science department.
UNH nursing and electrical engineering faculty have crossed departmental lines to create a “smart” training syringe that will help nurses and other health care professionals learn how to give the most effective intramuscular injections by providing realtime feedback. It’s the first device of its type ever created.
100 scientists and engineers from academia and industry in Europe, Asia, and both North and South America will be coming to UNH for an an international research conference on the subject of polymer nanoparticles. The International Polymers Colloid Group (IPCG) Polymer Colloids Conference 2011 has been organized by Professor
John Tsavalas and Emeritus Professor Donald Sundberg of the UNH Materials Science Program.
