|Xi-Cheng Zhang is a pioneer in the field of terahertz (THz or T-ray) optics, which taps a region of the infrared spectrum that reveals more and is safer than X-rays. The spectrum of T-rays has rich science and unexplored technology. Applications include T-ray sensing and imaging, T-ray spectroscopy, and electronics.||Natacha DePaola, who specializes in biofluids and cellular bioengineering, is interested in how blood flow causes changes in the circulatory system. Her research could lead to a better understanding of the development of arterial disease.||Pulickel Ajayan, a pioneer in the development of carbon nanotubes, has demonstrated several possibilities for using these quasi-one-dimensional structures as templates and molds for fabricating nanowires, composites, and novel ceramic fibers.||Kristin Bennetts work involves new mathematical programming approaches to machine learning. For example, Bennett uses mathematical models to predict the bioactivity of molecules in order to facilitate drug discovery.|
