Jonathon Gruener

The ME SPUR Experience: Gruener researches magnetic field design

Sept. 14, 2020

As an ME SPUR participant, Jonathon Gruener worked with Associate Professor Svenja Knappe to create a testing environment for highly-sensitive miniature magnetic field sensors with non-invasive brain imaging, space and industrial applications.

Andrew Beiter

The ME SPUR Experience: Beiter researches image-based modeling for cardiovascular systems

Sept. 11, 2020

As an ME SPUR participant, Andrew Beiter worked with Assistant Professor Debanjan Mukherjee to develop an in-house library of models for arterial hemodynamics in human patients, using CT and MRI scans and microscopy image data. His summer research project was titled, Image-Based Modeling for Cardiovascular Systems.

Julia Beattie

The ME SPUR Experience: Beattie researches image-based elastography in the deforming cell nucleus

Sept. 9, 2020

As an ME SPUR participant, Julia Beattie worked with Professor Corey Neu to measure intranuclear mechanics. The goal was to provide a non-invasive framework to investigate the mechanobiological function of subcellular and subnuclear domains limited only by the spatiotemporal resolution of the image acquisition method.

Justin Hall

The ME SPUR Experience: Hall develops a GUI application to drive a chemistry automation robot

Sept. 7, 2020

As an ME SPUR participant, Justin Hall worked with Assistant Professor Carson Bruns to develop a desktop application that will allow scientists to control a robot that automates weighing and dispensing chemicals, running chemical reactions and purification.

Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer

Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer available to college in fall

Sept. 4, 2020

Researchers in the college will soon have access to a Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer testing platform. With it, they can perform mechanical load and displacement tests of materials, devices and components that were not possible previously.

Anika Levy and Chris Doyle

The ME SPUR Experience: Doyle and Levy research environmental impacts of consumer product manufacturing

Sept. 4, 2020

As ME SPUR participants, Christopher Doyle and Anika Levy worked with Scholar in Residence Dan Riffell to compile and organize a standard resource that would allow consumers and designers make informed choices about which products to use or purchase based on energy costs of those products.

summer internship with the U.S. army corps of engineers

An inside look: Interning with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Sept. 3, 2020

Before his internship with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, mechanical engineering student Kyle McDonnell didn't know cost engineering was an engineering career path. He said his internship gave him a taste of what working at the Corp would be like and a taste of the construction field as well.

Adam Bradshaw

The ME SPUR Experience: Bradshaw researches energy transition in homes and indoor air quality

Sept. 2, 2020

As an ME SPUR participant, Adam Bradshaw worked with Professor Shelly Miller to set up a citizen science research effort to connect with households who have electrified and would be interested in connecting this effort to their overall health, wellbeing and indoor air quality.

cu quantum

Engineers helped lay foundation for campus quantum research efforts, new center

Aug. 31, 2020

A new $25 million center to advance quantum science on CU Boulder’s campus has deep roots in CU Engineering’s interdisciplinary research efforts.

Autumn Zemlicka

The ME SPUR Experience: Zemlicka researches image-based modeling for cardiovascular systems

Aug. 31, 2020

As an ME SPUR participant, Autumn Zemlicka worked with Assistant Professor Debanjan Mukherjee to develop an in-house library of models for arterial hemodynamics in human patients, using CT and MRI scans and microscopy image data.
