Hadas Kress-Gazit has been promoted to Full Professor

Hadas Kress-Gazit's tremendous efforts in formal methods have resulted in significant contributions to reactive software, theory, and algorithms that allow robots to perform high-level tasks with established performance guarantees. Her success is reflected through these many scientific contributions, her leadership as PI on a number of DoD and NSF programs - including an Office of Naval Research Multidisciplinary Research Program - and a number of awards (like the DARPA YFA and NSF CAREER). Hadas joined the Sibley School in 2009 and has since become a leader within our department and the... Read more

Technique could enable better custom ceramic fabrication

By: Syl Kacapyr

Assistant Professor Sadaf Sobhani created a new manufacturing technique that uses a combination of computational modeling, porous structure design and 3D printing to precisely customize the porous network of porous ceramic materials. Porous ceramics are used in bioreactors, insulators, automobile engines and synthetic bones because of their mechanical strength as well as their ability to resist heat and corrosion, among other properties.

Research Video Contest

Research Video Contest - Engineering Community Invited to Vote!

Connecting New Ph.D. Students with Labs in the COVID-19 Era This semester, the SiGMA outreach committee is holding a video contest to help new Ph.D. students in the Sibley School find labs. Research groups that are currently looking for students made 10-minute videos giving tours of their facilities and/or describing their research project. The winner will receive MAE masks to wear while on campus this fall and will be featured in the Cornell Graduate School Newsletter! Contest - We need your help! We invite the Cornell Engineering community to vote for their favorite video to help determine... Read more
