Glass LabAn article by doctoral student Zenzile Brooks, “A Gift of Glass,” appeared in the November issue of the Materials Research Society (MRS) Bulletin. Brooks, who plans to be a science writer after graduation, wrote the article about the MIT Glass Lab’s rebirth in 1986 as a volunteer freelancer for MRS Bulletin. As an undergraduate at the University of Southern California, Brooks hosted a TV talk show, CU@USC, and says she’s always enjoyed talking with people to hear their stories. At MIT, she works with Professor Franz-Josef Ulm and Professor Herbert Einstein on understanding why rocks crack at the micro and nanoscales.
