Spotlight

Patrick Reed

Patrick Reed has made a career out of managing water resources, an interest that began with a powerful event. While getting his degree in geological engineering at the University of Missouri, Reed’s hometown, St. Louis, was hit by the ‘93 flood of the Mississippi. “Pre-Katrina it was the largest natural disaster in U.S. history,” Reed says. “So I got to see my friends and family impacted by all of that...we saw homes float down the Mississippi.” More

Perrine Pepiot

Perrine Pepiot is interested in making fuel burn better. Fossil-fuel or renewably-sourced, Pepiot studies the molecular structures and chemical changes that happen when a liquid fuel is burned, with the end goal of making fossil fuels burn cleaner, and biofuels burn better. More

Ricardo Daziano

Ricardo Daziano would be the first to admit he fits the stereotype of the “artistic Italian” to some degree—he speaks multiple languages, enjoys oil painting—particularly in the style of the Italian Renaissance artists, and he is passionate about cooking. More

Florentina Bunea

Florentina Bunea wants to understand uncertainty. This philosophical curiosity is what brought her to her current field of work in statistics, unlike her more prosaic peers. More

Ankur Singh

Ankur Singh manipulates synthetic materials and living cells to improve human health. He traces his motivation to his experiences discussing problems with patients as a biomedical engineering student in India. “My ultimate goal is to take this research to the clinical level and benefit patients,” he says.

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

Andreea Minca

Andreea Minca is interested in risks and how they affect financial markets, a topic that is particularly timely given recent upheavals in the global economy. More

Julius Lucks

Custom-designing an organism to fit a researcher’s specifications sound like science fiction, but it’s something that Julius Lucks is working to make a reality. More

Gregory Fuchs

Greg Fuchs studies physics at the single-atom scale, experimenting with control over their individual quantum states. While the work is based in fundamental physics, the findings have real-world applications. More

Jan Lammerding

Jan Lammerding is busy redefining how we think of living cells. While traditional biology focuses on biochemical reactions as the main forces controlling cellular behavior, Lammerding looks at its mechanics. More

Tanzeem Choudhury

Tanzeem Choudhury likes to study humans. Throughout her career, she has used technology to study people’s behavior, psychology, and health—creating innovations that promise to enhance our daily lives. More
