As the world rushes to use nanoparticles in everything from disease treatment to oil spill clean up, the impacts on the environment and human health remain uncertain. Recognizing the importance of understanding these effects, the National Science Foundation recently awarded civil and environmental engineering Assistant Professor Vinka Oyanedel-Craver a prestigious Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) Award.
Associate Professor Mayrai Gindy is studying how to make bridges safer and their pavement smoother.
Civil and environmental engineering student Emily Serman interned at NASA during four summers and became a key player in the agency’s climate change research.
We’re building nationally recognized leaders. Alumnus Francis Marinaccio (’10) was recently selected to participate in the elite American Public Works Association Emerging Leaders Academy.
Civil Engineering professor Mayrai Gindy, along with electrical engineering professors Kumaresan and Boudreaux-Bartels, received a grant from Champlin Foundations to develop a Mobile Bridge Testing Laboratory for undergraduate students.
Dorothy S. Rasco is perhaps closer to outer space than other URI graduates and for her work she won the University’s Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award.
A team of engineering researchers is examining methods of harvesting solar energy from roadways to melt ice, power streetlights, illuminate signs, heat buildings and potentially use it for many other purposes.
Professor Vinka Craver led a team of students, members of the Students for Global Sustainability Club (SGS), to Guatemala
