Robert “Bob” Conn, dean emeritus of the University of California San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering, has been selected to receive one of the oldest and most prestigious National Academy of Engineering (NAE) awards, the Simon Ramo Founders Award for 2023.
A pair of earbuds can be turned into a tool to record the electrical activity of the brain as well as levels of lactate in the body with the addition of two flexible sensors screen-printed onto a stamp-like flexible surface.
Emma Hogan, a computer science PhD student at UC San Diego and a recent Ford Fellow, is teaching computer science to another underrepresented population: incarcerated people at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego.
UC San Diego engineers have devised a new solution to control a major agricultural menace, root-damaging nematodes. Using plant viruses, they created nanoparticles that can deliver pesticides to previously unreachable soil depths. This could potentially minimize environmental toxicity and costs.
Materials science researchers at UC San Diego, University of Alabama, and Colorado State University are working together to solve a vexing materials-for-extreme-environments challenge.
