Assistant Professor Sameh Tawfick, Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Abstract: The bottom-up synthesis and self-organization of precisely engineered 1D and 2D materials enables new multi-functional designs. In particular, owing to their low dimensionality, the use of carbon nanotubes and graphene in load-bearing materials requires deep understanding of their mechanics from the atomic to micron scales.
I will demonstrate extremely reconfigurable materials made... More >

Hardware trends, including the end of Moore's Law and the maturation of cloud computing, have placed a premium on the development of scalable algorithms designed for parallel... More >
Seminar 237/281: Macro/International Seminar - "Fiscal Rules and Discretion under Limited Enforcement"
Seminar | May 7 | 2-4 p.m. | 597 Evans Hall
We study a fiscal policy model in which the government is present-biased towards public spending. Society chooses a fiscal rule to trade off the benefit of committing the government to not overspend against the benefit of granting it flexibility to react to privately observed shocks to the value of spending. Unlike prior work, we examine rules under limited enforcement: the government has full... More >
