As a rising high school senior, assistant professor Matthew Eckelman, spent a summer at Northeastern simulating earthquakes on a shaker table to evaluate the stability of landfill liner systems. Twenty-one years later, he’s come full circle, hosting young scholars in his lab, guiding them toward STEM careers.
When Northeastern assistant professor Loretta Fernandez was a kid, she “wanted to be Jacques Cousteau” (her words, her emphasis). She wanted to live on The Calypso, the boat from which […]
Advances in observational technologies show that populations of bacterial cells are as diverse as any other species, but analytical tools have yet to evolve to study this individuality, says associate professor of civil and environmental engineering Ferdi Hellweger.
Auroop Ganguly, an associate professor and extreme weather expert, discusses the newest report on climate change, which found that humans are almost certainly to blame for the global phenomenon.
For many civil engineers, the annual steel bridge competition might as well be the Super Bowl. It’s a big deal — university teams all over the country spend many months, […]
Civil and environmental engineering professor Philip Larese-Casanova has had a life-long love affair with metals. In his work in aquatic environmental chemistry, he looks at how metallic pollutants transform and […]
Jerry Hajjar, chair and professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has received a new NSF grant to further his research in the area of sustainable building design — which he envisions as an industry of the future.
