Rayhan Syed and Samuel Cavas presented a poster on transport of inertial objects in time-dependent flows (George Ho, B.Eng.'19 and Jialun Bao, EE'18 also contributed but were unable to attend the meeting). Skylar Eiskowitz presented a poster on electromagnetic phenomena in granular flows and also gave a talk on the Hall effect in a dusty plasma, stemming from a summer REU at the University of Maryland. Professor Luchtenburg and Professor Phil Yecko presented a talk on the role of inertia in transport in complex flows. Professor Yecko was also a session chair for Nonlinear Dynamics and Coherent Structures.

 

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
