Dr. Azoug receives the NSF CAREER award

Dr. Azoug received an NSF CAREER award. The project, entitled: “Dissipation mechanisms and damping in smart elastomers with intermolecular organization”, will start on August 1st and will allow the lab to explore in details the deformation mechanisms of Liquid Crystal Elastomers at microscopic and macroscopic scales.

The project also entails a large education component focused on bringing more girls and women to Mechanical Engineering. We will participate to summer camps, start a Girls Who Code Club in Stillwater, and globally show Oklahoma young women how engineering can provide them with great career opportunities.
