Trina Pham is a first-generation college student living on the rural outskirts of Mauldin, South Carolina, where she dreams of becoming the U.S. president’s chief advisor on science and technology. By the time she walks into the Oval Office, the big issues for Pham could include intelligent machines, humankind’s outpost on Mars and the discovery […]
Clemson University researchers are well positioned to make new breakthroughs in nuclear energy technology after receiving a collection of awards from the U.S. Department of Energy. Three awards fund research, and one funds new scientific equipment. The awards are expected to advance safe storage of nuclear waste and have applications in the areas of advanced […]
A professor whose work could lead to paint that heals itself like skin has written a review for a highly selective publication, sharpening the focus on Clemson University’s excellence in materials science research. Marek Urban’s review on self-healing polymers appears in the latest edition of Nature Reviews Materials. Self-healing polymers are a type of smart […]
Clemson University faculty and staff are using their expertise, creativity and the generosity of their community to prepare for the phased return to campus after the COVID-19 pandemic moved the University to modified operations. As one of the premier research universities in the nation, Clemson is fortunate to have resources and a tightly knit pool of experts to draw from as well as an army of people ready to jump to the aid of fellow Tigers at a moment’s notice.
A Clemson University graduate who returned to his alma mater as an associate professor and now leads an academic department is winning one of his profession’s high honors. Kyle Brinkman, chair of Clemson’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been named Fellow of The American Ceramic Society. The award recognizes outstanding contributions to the […]
Three Clemson University seniors and three graduate students received Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation.
A nationwide partnership of scientists and engineers, including Mark Johnson of Clemson University, is working on new methods of cleaning and sanitizing medical masks to help protect healthcare providers from COVID-19. Highly pressurized carbon dioxide could be used as part of a process that not only sanitizes N95 masks by inactivating the novel coronavirus but […]
Ulf Schiller of Clemson University is bringing a physicist’s perspective to materials science as part of a new project that employs sophisticated supercomputing techniques to better understand complex fluids, a step toward creating new smart materials. Schiller, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering, said that his new research will focus on various combinations […]
Clemson University researchers from the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences (CBSHS), the College of Engineering, Computing and Applies Sciences (CECAS) and College of Science (COS) have been awarded 14 seed grants from the Seed Grant Program at Health Sciences Center (HSC) at Prisma Health. The grants will fund projects on a variety of […]
New research is putting Clemson University at the forefront of an emerging technology that could help computers run faster and use less energy, while allowing them to continue shrinking in size. Kai He, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering, is launching a two-year project with a $299,204 fellowship from the National Science Foundation. […]
A Clemson University professor who has advanced research into batteries, fuel cells and nuclear waste management will be honored by his peers in February for his research achievements and service to his profession. Kyle Brinkman, the chair of Clemson’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering, will be recognized as a Brimacombe Medalist by The Minerals, […]
Rajendra Bordia is the new George J. Bishop, III Chair in Ceramic and Materials Engineering.
Students and technologists across the country will soon have a new and interactive way to learn about manufacturing the light-based technologies that are crucial for a host of next-generation products and services, including high-speed wireless networks.
Two Clemson University professors who hold endowed chairs are among the newest fellows elected to the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). John Ballato and Marek Urban will be honored on Feb. 15, 2020, during the association’s annual meeting in Seattle. It will be the first time since 1965 that Clemson has had two professors honored in the same year.
Clemson University researchers are developing three new sensors designed to withstand two of humanity’s harshest environments, the intense heat inside power plants and the tremendous pressure at the bottom of hydraulic fracturing wells. The research, led by Hai Xiao, is aimed at advancing the technology behind fossil fuels, which produce much of the nation’s power. The ultimate goal is to generate power more efficiently while lowering emissions and using fewer resources.
