The UF Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department chair, Dr. Scott Banks, traveled to Seattle this week to meet with Boeing engineers, including Patrick King and former UF IMG alumni Brandon Bertolucci, Dylan Alexander, Todd Schultz, and Ashley Jones (not pictured). IMG and the Gator Nation are everywhere!
The speakers for this week's seminar are:
11:55am - 12:20pm: James Fleetwood (Invited speaker - UF): Safety Simplified for IMG Researchers
12:20pm - 12:45pm: Dr. Chuck Hages (Invited speaker - UF): Developing next-generation semiconductors for energy research
1) Abstract: Curious about what safety concerns you are missing? Learn what resources HWCOE Safety has to offer and how Safety can work for you! From chemical safety to ergonomics HWCOE Safety has you covered.
IMG warmly welcomes its newest faculty member—Dr. Philip Feng! Dr. Feng and his research group focus primarily on emerging semiconductor devices and integrated systems, and he has received numerous awards including the prestigious NSF CAREER Award. We believe he will be a great addition to our community!

Today, IMG hosted students from the University of Tokyo as they travel across the United States for an international workshop. We had the pleasure of sharing some of our work with these researchers and hearing about their exciting projects!
For this week seminar, we will have Dr, Sae Miller talking about "Research Overview & Thermo–Acoustic Combustion Instability"
This presentation contains two parts. The first includes an overview of the PI’s research program, students, and teaching. The second discusses combustion instability, which causes rocket and jet engine failure. We will examine important equations for combustion instability and combustion acoustics.
