THURS. 11/17- ASME hosted the first speaker series of the Fall semester with Adi Raghunandun, a PhD student in Professor Hirsa’s lab. His area of expertise is in Protein Fibrillation, flow driven as well as steady state. Adi is also working with a few other graduate students on a similar project alongside NASA that will be sent to the International Space Station in 2019. The talk blended a research presentation and lecture format so that students could understand how their classes in thermal flow and heat transfer are applied in the real world.
TUES. 11/1- The robotics team spent a couple of hours taking apart a wafer moving machine. The robot turned out to be much more complex than anticipated, and the team will meet again to finish the disassembly. Robotics managed to recover three motors.
