MEAM Seminar: “Tribofilms at the Asperity Scale”
The presentation will start with an introduction to tribology. This term was first used in a 1965 UK government report which identified the economic loss due to preventable wear and poor friction performance. It helped bring together the diverse community of engineers and scientists that need to collaborate in order to tackle the complex interactions […]

PICS Seminar: “Topology, Geometry, and Fracture in Networked Materials: A Tale of Scales”
The skeleton of many natural and artificial structures may be abstracted as networks of nonlinearly interacting elements. Examples include rubber, gels, soft tissues, and lattice materials. Understanding the multiscale nature of deformation and failure of networked structures hold key for uncovering origins of fragility in many complex systems including biological tissues and enables designing novel […]
