CEE Undergraduate Students Win Best Poster at NEW.Mech Conference
Noor Khouri, a senior and a UROP in Professor Pedro Reis’s research group, presented a talk at NEW.Mech (New England Workshop on the Mechanics of Materials and Structures) on October 18 at UMass Amherst. NEW.Mech is an annual conference that has become central to the agenda of the mechanics community. She and graduate student Khalid Jawed also won the Best Poster award for “Modeling Propulsion of Bacterial Flagella.” The flexible version of this year’s Capstone course for seniors is allowing her to conduct detailed research, as well as having the opportunity to make professional presentations and engage in technical writing for a journal manuscript.
