#Hengineers Study with World-Class Faculty

Alexandra Oliveira

The University of Delaware has provided me with excellent resources and strong faculty in the area of electrochemical engineering and catalysis who can provide input and mentor me through my studies.

Alexandra Oliveira

Doctoral Candidate in Chemical Engineering

Aditya Kunjapur, a new assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has been named to the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security’s Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity Initiative fellowship program in 2019.  He works with graduate students Sabyasachi (Sunny) Sen and Morgan Sulzbach in his lab in Colburn using the latest pipette techniques with gels.
Joe Kuehl and graduate student Charles McMahon work with a rotating tank so help determine the ocean current loop in the Golf of Mexico and the South China Sea.
LaShanda Korley and Chase Thompson work together on bioinspired materials in her lab in Colburn Lab.
The College of Engineering's Jason Gleghorn, Biomechanical Engineering, has received a NSF Career Award for his work with lymph nodes and their ability to fight off infections. Jasmine Shirazi and Michael Donzanti are part of the Gleghorn group doing research.
Fabrizio Sergi, assistant professor of Biomedical Engineering and director of the Human Robotics (HuRo) lab, has received an NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award. Along with current Ph.D. students Andrea Zonnino and Andria Farrens, Sergio has been using robotics and haptic feedback systems with neuroimaging - particularly Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) - to study the neural substrates of motor control.
Mark Mirotznik and grad student Zachary Larimore work with the new 3-D printer in the Electrical & Computer Engineering Lab in Evans Hall, May 7th, 2018.
Dr. April Kloxin, associate professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.

#Hengineers Team Up to Solve Problems

Adam Stager, a UD doctoral student in mechanical engineering, adjusts the ground robot before sending it into the field.

I heard that some of the stuff we were doing for the Department of Defense might actually be relevant in agriculture as well. So, we can build robots that drive underneath the canopy, and those robots can be very similar to robots that explore bombs and do a lot of the explosive ordnance disposal.

#Hengineers Change the World

Patricia Hurley

I have always enjoyed learning about the environment and decided to study environmental engineering with the intent of solving environmental challenges. I chose my research topic because it can have an impact on both human health and environmental health. Through my studies, I have learned that septic tank contamination is an issue, and I hope that I can use what I learn from this project to help educate the public about water pollution.

Graduate Fellowships

Of full-time graduate students, nearly 80% receive merit-based financial awards. Fellowships, tuition scholarships, assistantships, and traineeships are awarded on the basis of merit from nominations by the department. Awards are granted to full-time students in good academic standing with regular status.

Opportunities include:

  • Laird Fellowship
  • NSF Graduate Research Fellowship
  • University Fellowships
  • Travel Scholarships
