When Clemson takes on Notre Dame in the 2018 Cotton Bowl, a berth in the national championship game will be at stake. But on the universities’ respective campuses, teams of researchers are working together – Tiger and Fighting Irish – to tackle some heavy-hitting science and societal issues. Here, we present three collaborations that transcend the gridiron.
For the second year in a row, seven Clemson University faculty members received 2018 National Science Foundation Early Faculty Career Development Awards, one of the most prestigious awards to young faculty. From adapting the art of Japanese origami to structural engineering to predicting the earth’s response to space storms, these Clemson assistant professors apply their […]
