First visit to “MidMechMat”: a Midwestern workshop on mechanics

Shab, Jiho, and Professor Dunn went up to Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago) last week to present posters at the 4th annual workshop on Mechanics of Materials and Structures. The keynote speakers were excellent, Michael Ortiz from CalTech and Heinrich Jaeger from the University of Chicago, and we met many talented researchers working in all aspects of mechanics — even other tribologists!

Congrats to Shab on winning a poster award! Thanks to our local organizers: professors Ahmed Elbanna and Yuhang Hu.
