ME Faculty Awards Announced
ME Associate Professor Ashley Bucsek has received the William N. Findley Award, and ME Associate Professor Neil Dasgupta has won the E. & M. Ulsoy Citation Leader Award.
ME assistant professor awarded Young Investigator Research Program award
Ashley Bucsek is one of just 58 engineers selected for this honor by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. The award is in recognition of her research on "Supercritical Phase Transformations for Multiferroic Materials."
Ashley Bucsek receives NSF CAREER Award for work on martensitic phase transformations
Dr. Bucsek's proposal, titled “Understanding the Origins of Mechanical Hysteresis and Functional Fatigue in Martensitic Phase Transforming Materials,” seeks to understand why and how materials degrade, after repeated martensitic phase transformations.
