Professor Lepek co-led a workshop entitled, “Nature-Inspired Chemical Engineering Applied to Particle Technology” with colleague Marc-Olivier Coppens (from University College London). Read the abstract here.

Professor Lepek also presented a poster entitled “Using Perusall to Enhanced Student Learning of Particle Technology at Graz University of Technology”. This work is based on some of his Fulbright work when he was a visiting professor at TU Graz. See the poster here.

  • 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.
