A novel four-step process has been developed by researchers including Assistant Professor Tommaso Ranzani (ME) and Assistant Professor Sheila Russo (ME) to construct microfluidic origami for reconfigurable pneumatic/hydraulic (MORPH) systems. Their work, published in Advanced Materials, details the process and demonstrates its capabilities with the fabrication of a highly complex soft structure.
Materials Professor Malika Jeffries-EL elected ACS Fellow for her research activity and dedication to “diversifying the chemical workforce through mentoring and training students.”
Only three percent of members become fellows and to be nominated and elected, a member must meet qualifications in at least one of nine categories; Zhang was chosen for her accomplishments in the research and education categories.
