Explaining the behavior of complex fluids

Somewhere between the minuscule world of the atom and the one we experience as humans is another, “middle world”--larger than atoms but smaller than what the naked eye can see. Roseanna Zia, an Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is at home in this world, studying the micro-mechanical underpinnings of macroscopic material behaviors in complex fluids and gels.

Improving drug discovery and delivery

One of the unspoken rules of higher education is that getting tenure is more important than just about anything else an assistant professor can do. This is why it is a bit surprising to hear Chris Alabi, assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering (CBE) at Cornell, say “I care much more about the health of my research program than I do about tenure. Research is about discovery, and that is what I get excited about.” More
