June 3, 2020
The College of Engineering Faculty Award for Excellence in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion was presented to CSCDR faculty Dr. Arghavan Louhghalam. The selection committee noted her initiative to design and participate in workshops to increase participation of junior high and high school girls in civil and structural engineering, her involvement in the society of women engineers, and leadership in an effort funded by the National Science Foundation to support panels and workshops on approaches to increase diversity and inclusion in the field of engineering mechanics.
CSCDR graduate student aids in quest to understand black holes
May 18, 2020
Nur Rifat, currently a masters student in the Department of Physics and member of the CSCDR, works on computational models used to simulate so-called template signals from systems like binary black holes. Until now, it was difficult to make predictions of what the gravitational wave signal was like during the merger of two black holes when one of the black holes is much larger than the other one. Rifat's new model allows scientists to generate precise template signals from such systems at an impressively fast rate. Rifat's new model was recently published in the top physics journal
