    Robots and humans collaborate to revolutionize architecture

    Two Princeton researchers, architect Stefana Parascho and engineer Sigrid Adriaenssens, partnered with architecture and engineering firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill to create a striking and unique installation for the SOM exhibition “Anatomy of Structure” in London last March: a vault, 7 feet tall, 12 feet across and 21 feet long, constructed of 338 transparent glass bricks -- built by robots.

    New combustion models improve efficiency and accuracy

    Researchers at Princeton University have developed a new model that will allow engineers to accurately predict the characteristics of combustion processes with far less computing power than previously needed. The new model breaks a long-standing trade-off between models that are efficient but narrowly useful and models that are more general but computationally expensive.

    Climate change could lead to less sun for regions banking on solar power

    While solar power is a leading form of renewable energy, new research suggests that changes to regional climates brought on by global warming could make areas currently considered ideal for solar power production less viable in the future.

    Why YouTube review videos are often really paid ads (and how you can tell the difference): Michael Swart, Princeton Class of 2019

    Our guest on "Cookies" today, Michael Swart, says a lot of YouTube review videos are practically paid commercials without even telling you. And he has a way to tell the difference.

  • Professor Maravelias

    Top process systems engineer Christos Maravelias joins the faculty, expands energy systems research

    Christos Maravelias, an expert in process systems engineering, has joined the Princeton faculty as of September 1, 2020. Maravelias is the Anderson Family Professor in Energy and the Environment and a professor of chemical and biological engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment.

    Speaking creates droplets linked to disease transmission

    For the first time, researchers have directly visualized how speaking produces and expels droplets of saliva into the air. These droplets can be inhaled by other people and are a primary way that respiratory infections like COVID-19 spread from person to person.
