Zenzile Brooks writes about MIT’s Glass Lab for Materials Research Science Bulletin
An 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.
