Transforming Knowledge to Practice
- Mar 25 Rafael Davalos named American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering Fellow Davalos was selected for outstanding contributions to the field through his invention of new technologies that make inoperable tumors treatable for thousands of cancer patients.
- Mar 22 Bhuvana Srinivasan earns NSF CAREER award to study plasma physics in exploding stars A better understanding of plasma transport, or the exchange of mass, momentum, and energy, can impact a variety of areas in science and engineering. The importance of Srinivasan’s research extends beyond astrophysics to terrestrial applications of plasmas, such as nuclear fusion, which has the potential to provide an abundance of clean energy.
- Mar 22 Virginia Tech enters partnership with NASA to conduct benchmark Stability Wind Tunnel experiments The team of students is designing and performing experiments that establish a new standard in uncertainty documentation, thus ushering in a new generation of computational fluid dynamics turbulence models.
