We are delighted to welcome Joshua Enszer, who has joined the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering as assistant professor of instruction, with responsibilities that cover teaching and academic innovation in the undergraduate program. His goal is to bring knowledge from the scholarship of teaching and learning to improve opportunities in the department’s undergraduate courses. He hopes to apply some of his earlier work in the areas of game-based learning and metacognition to his new position at UD. Before starting at UD in August, Enszer was a lecturer in chemical engineering at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. Prior to that, he was interim program coordinator for first-year engineering at the University of Notre Dame. Enszer holds a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering and mathematics from Michigan Technological University and a master of science degree and doctorate in chemical engineering from Notre Dame.

Colleagues have praised the election of Dennis Assanis as the new president of the University of Delaware. Dennis Assanis, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at Stony Brook University, has been elected the next president of the University of Delaware, after a unanimous vote by the Board of Trustees at a special meeting on Nov. 18. "Dr. Assanis has an impressive record as an academic leader, a distinguished scholar and an inspiring educator," John R. Cochran, chairman of the Board of Trustees, said. "I am confident that his personal commitment to the power of education and his extensive experience in the classroom and the laboratory will serve the University of Delaware well in the years to come."
DSM Science and Technology Award Americas 2015 goes to Stephen Ma for breakthrough research in polymer wrinkling
Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, today announced that the DSM Science & Technology Award Americas 2015 has been awarded to Stephen Ma from the University of Delaware, USA. The award recognizes the development of a highly original wrinkling technique to make patterns on the surface of a polymer. This new system could have the potential to open up whole new application fields, ranging from creating artificial tissues, anti-fouling surfaces, optical coatings to tunable lenses.
Neutrons are far too tiny for the human eye to see, but they can help us "see" deep into matter and determine the properties of materials at the subatomic level. Neutrons can behave like microscopic magnets, diffract like waves, or set particles into motion, revealing properties not available using other probes or imaging techniques.
