Recruiting young women in STEM disciplines

On August 9th the College of Engineering is co-hosting with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences for an afternoon series of sessions for young women who are interested in pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. More

Olivier Desjardins

Understanding the physics of complex, turbulent multiphase flows fascinates Olivier Desjardins. His research helps improve both traditional fuel-engine systems as well as newer biofuel combustion systems by focusing, among other things, on unraveling the physics behind the atomization process—in which fuel turns to tiny droplets before being burned. More

David Matteson

Multivariate statistics involves the observation and analysis of many types of data at the same time, and how they relate to each other—a field that has fascinated David Matteson since he was young. More

Marten Wegkamp

Classic statistical analyses rely on large sample sizes of relatively simple data. However, in the world of biology, researchers are often faced with the reverse—small sample sizes of very complex data points, such as genes. Marten Wegkamp creates statistical models to help deal with these kinds of data sets. More
