INDUSTRY SOLUTIONS


BYWATER INSTITUTE DEDICATES NEW FACILITY Coastal protection and restoration is central to the mission of a new Center of Excellence on the banks of the mighty Mississippi. In September, Tulane launched the ByWater Institute at the newly completed Tulane River and Coastal Center, a 5,800-square-foot facility located at the Robin Street Wharf on the Mississippi River. The Institute will be a Center of Excellence, bringing scholars from across disciplines together to find innovative solutions to one of the biggest challenges facing Louisiana and vulnerable communities worldwide—how to manage threats of rising water from coastal erosion, natural disasters and a changing environment. Dr. Michael Blum, the Eugenie Schwartz Professor of River and Coastal Studies and Director of the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research, stated, “The center is emblematic of Tulane’s growing capacity to address concerns that define our community and is designed to speed discovery of solutions—and, more importantly, speed translation toward their implementation.”

The center will house a team jointly affiliated with Tulane and the Baton Rouge-based Water Institute of the Gulf. The facility holds offices, research labs, conference rooms, and will include staging areas for field operations and support efforts. “How well this country moves ideas out of the research lab and into the marketplace will determine how competitive we remain in the global economy,” stated Jay Williams, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for the U. S. Economic Development Administration, at the dedication ceremony. “This institute will help foster a more entrepreneurial, innovation-driven economy contributing to the rebuilding of New Orleans and the revitalization of the local economy, this state and the nation.” In addition to supporting applied research and outreach, the center will also host conferences and university courses, as well as lectures and seminars for professional accreditation, spurring academic-industry and public-private partnerships.

“The survival of our region depends on negotiating our relationship with water.” - Mike Fitts, President Tulane University


CORPORATE PARTNER INEOS SUPPORTS HANDS-ON LEARNING FOR UNDERGRADUATES Alumnus knows what’s needed and delivers more than Bunsen burners and beakers. Students in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering spend a lot of time plugging numbers into complex equations in an effort to define how fluids perform under intense pressure in miles of imaginary pipelines. Alumnus Shepard “Shep” F. Perrin III (E ‘83), Business Manager at INEOS Olefins & Polymers USA, and his company partner with the School of Science and Engineering to help turn those abstract equations into something Tulane students can see, hear and feel.

A new fluid friction apparatus provides an up close and intimate view of the systems students will be expected to operate after landing jobs in industry after graduation. The partnership also helps the school uphold its promise to offer more opportunities for undergraduates to participate in research, such as investigating how bacteria can be used to clean up oil spills.

“As an alumnus, Shep knows the program and what the students go through in the classroom,” says Professor Anne Robinson, department chair. “As an industry insider, he understands what is needed to prepare those students for life at the plant.”

“Our investment in human capital is critical to position our company for continued success into the next generation,” Perrin says. “We’ve found the quality and diversity of students at Tulane to be outstanding.”

Mutually beneficial corporate partnerships are vitally important to the school. INEOS helps the school acquire much-needed instrumentation and offers unparalleled classroom experiences for its students; in return, the company gets increased

INEOS offers internships to Tulane students and recruits newly minted graduates. INEOS is a $30 billion global manufacturer of petrochemicals, specialty chemicals and oil products with 67 sites in 16 countries throughout the world.


TULANE JOINS MAJOR INITIATIVE TO SPUR MANUFACTURING ADVANCES  PolyRMC Founding Director Wayne Reed.

Tulane University has joined forces with Texas A&M in one of five regional centers located across the U.S. as part of the $140 million Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute. Tulane is among a consortium of 200 partners from across academia, industry and nonprofits that make up the Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition, which will lead the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII) in partnership with the Department of Energy. The coalition aims to spur advances in smart sensors and digital process controls that can radically improve the efficiency of advanced manufacturing in the United States. Tulane will carry out its role at the PolyRMC laboratory of the School of Science and Engineering under the direction of physics professor Wayne Reed, the lab’s founding director.

“The goal at Tulane is to adapt our advanced monitoring and control technologies—invented and patented at Tulane—to the major challenge of polyolefin production. Polyolefin production in the U.S. involves tens of billions of dollars per year, and Texas and Louisiana are the main producers.” The lab’s spin-off company, Advanced Polymer Monitoring Technologies, Inc., under the direction of CEO Alex Reed, will also be involved, translating the Tulane research into an active industrial test bed platform.

“The Tulane PolyRMC and its spinoff company APMT have pioneered technologies that help produce higher quality chemicals and pharmaceuticals more efficiently,” said Nick Altiero, dean of the Tulane School of Science and Engineering. “We are proud to have them play such a significant role in this impressive consortium focused on smart manufacturing.”


STUDENT SPOTLIGHT


BRIDGING THE DIVIDE  Amy Goodson, NSF Graduate Research Fellow.

Amy Goodson connects industry experience with discovery as a NSF Graduate Research Fellow. If there was ever any doubt that unusual career paths can lead to success, Amy Goodson, the newest National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow in the School of Science and Engineering at Tulane, has laid that notion to rest. “I’m not your traditional grad student,” says Goodson, 30, a native of Denver and a first-year Ph.D. student in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. “I didn’t fit into the standard box.” Fresh out of her undergraduate degree in Colorado and fascinated by new developments in the oil and gas industry, Goodson joined a team at Chevron, where for the next six years she would serve as an upstream facilities and pipeline engineer. But Goodson says that she still preferred the technical aspect of engineering.

That, and all the upper-level jobs that appealed to her in petrochemicals, required a Ph.D. Thus, Goodson began to explore. It wasn’t until after she entered Tulane that Goodson says Entergy Chair of Clean Energy Engineering, Dan Shantz, encouraged her to pursue the NSF Fellowship. “With such a research focus to their work, I was worried my years in industry weren’t what the NSF was looking for,” Goodson says. “I was genuinely surprised when I received an email saying that I had been selected as a Fellow.” Goodson is also the first named Cowen Scholar in the School of Science and Engineering, as part of a fellowship created by the Thomas and Helen Armer Endowed Fund. “I don’t know what the future holds—no one does,” Goodson says. “But wherever I go back to work, I hope to bridge that divide.”

“Working in industry helped me understand how to take a problem and break it down into steps,” Goodson says. “I love seeing how parts relate to one another and using that understanding to move forward into a solution.”


STUDENT RESEARCHERS PRESENT THEIR NOVEL IDEAS  Nicholas Pashos presents at the 2016 Novel Tech Challenge.

Eight teams of student researchers went toe-to-toe on April 13 during the second annual Tulane Novel Tech Challenge. Nicholas Pashos, a doctoral student in Tulane’s BioInnovation Program, and his team BioAesthetics captured the experienced researcher category. The Tulane Novel Tech Challenge empowers students to improve the environment, human health, education and urban infrastructure through technology. Pashos presented an acellular, tissueengineered nipple-areola complex that allows the patient’s own cells to regenerate a new nipple and areola in the event of loss due to trauma or disease. Although Pashos has been involved in many technology and innovation challenges across the country, he says what makes the Novel Tech Challenge different is the mentorship experience. Pashos

was matched with two Tulane alumni, Dr. Scott Sullivan (E ’87) and Sabrina Johnson (E ’88) who both graciously shared their knowledge and experience with Pashos. “The advice that I got from them was invaluable, especially from a business perspective,” says Pashos. “I was able to rethink some of the things I did on the bench-top before the project was too advanced.” The challenge is sponsored by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation and featured $16,000 in cash prizes. “More than the money—it’s really the mentorship that was so valuable to me,” says Pashos. “It was a great experience.” Pashos is in his fifth year as a doctoral student. He says he is taking what he learned in the Novel Tech Challenge and hopes to bring his device to market.

“This was my second year to be part of the Novel Tech Challenge,” says Pashos. “This year I was able to spend my time focusing on getting my prototype to the best place possible.”


FACULTY MENTORSHIP IMPROVES 3-D PRINTING  Samuel Lensgraf and Dr. Ramgopal Mettu at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation.

Samuel Lensgraf attended Tulane like his family and friends before him—and the experience has positioned him as a world-class algorithm designer. It was all because of the relationship he developed with his favorite faculty member. “Dr. Mettu was my favorite teacher in undergrad,” says Lensgraf, a 2015 School of Science and Engineering graduate. “I asked him if I could work with him on an independent study and we came up with this great idea about 3-D printing.” Together Lensgraf and associate professor of computer science Ramgopal Mettu developed an idea to make 3-D printers more efficient. In traditional 3-D printing, a 3-D digital model is produced by what is essentially an inkjet printer. The printer “extrudes” filament in 2-D slices, building the model from the bottom up until it is complete.

“The problem with this approach is that in each layer, there may be a significant amount of wasted motion because the printer head must create complicated geometric shapes,” said Mettu. “We designed an efficient algorithm to plan the motion of the printer head that significantly reduces the amount of wasted motion.” Their paper on the subject, “Beyond Layers: A 3-D–Aware Toolpath Algorithm for Fused Filament Fabrication” took the top prize for Best Automation Paper at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Stockholm, Sweden. Lensgraf, who is now a software developer for a Tennessee startup, believes the algorithm can be used to significantly speed up fabrication. He is currently exploring commercialization opportunities.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without Dr. Mettu’s guidance,” says Lensgraf. “I’ve become an expert at this really niche thing. I’m so thankful for everything. It’s forever changed my career.”


ALUMNI LEADERSHIP


A PERSONAL CONNECTION MAKES A BIG IMPACT ON THE TULANE BRAIN INSTITUTE Engineering alumnus’ gift from the heart benefits the Tulane Brain Institute. Marta and Bill (E ’81, E’83) Marko chose to support the Tulane Brain Institute to make an immediate impact on an area that means so much to them. “It starts and ends with something really personal for us,” says Bill. Marta’s parents both have dementia and have also been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. “We love what Tulane as a university is doing, and we’ve been really impressed with everyone involved. There’s no ‘I’ or ‘me’— it’s a collective process,” Marta says. The Markos, like many others, realize that understanding the brain is no small task. The Brain Institute is a new university-wide

initiative that will provide an infrastructure to coordinate and expand the programs and research initiatives that are currently underway, and push them to the next level. The Institute will seek to coordinate and enrich all of the expertise from the School of Science and Engineering, the School of Medicine, the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, the School of Liberal Arts and the National Primate Research Center under one very important umbrella. “We already have a strong foundation We aren’t building something from the ground up,” says Dr. Jill Daniel, professor of Psychology who will assume the role as director of the Brain Institute. “What the Markos have done is what’s really allowed us to build on that foundation and get the Brain Institute started.” Marta and Bill hope that their gift helps others see the wisdom of interdisciplinary study.

“There’s a lot of smart people with a lot of great ideas and energy getting to work together,” Bill says. “Great things are going to happen. Our main question is how can we help you go faster?”


TULANE ALUM SUPPORTS MAKER SPACE  Maker-in-Chief Cedric Walker in Tulane’s Maker Space.

With its wide range of available tools, from cutting edge 3-D printers to traditional metal and wood lathes, the School of Science and Engineering’s Maker Space allows students to transform their visions into reality. But according to Tulane alumnus James Dillard, III, the Maker Space has the capacity to transform the students as well, making them better equipped to succeed. Dillard began his career at Tulane, receiving his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biomedical engineering. In his current role as Senior Vice President of Altria Group, he is in a unique position to see the importance of hands-on training. “I’ve watched a slow burn of engineers who are super smart and who can think theoretically but have no practical experience,” Dillard says. He sees the School of Science and Engineering as breaking that mold. As a judge for the Novel Tech Challenge, he has experienced firsthand the Tulane difference.

“Students can think on their feet, tell a story and function in teams. They know how to present themselves and how to act professionally, and they have the softer skills as well. Experiences like the Novel Tech Challenge and the Maker Space encourage teamwork and crossfunctionality. It’s more of what we need moving forward in industry and what we need from the university graduates as they move into a professional setting.” Dillard has been dedicated to advancing the School of Science and Engineering for many years, and when the opportunity to support the Maker Space arose, he saw a second opportunity as well. Dillard named the Cedric Walker Gallery for Ideas, Designs and Strategies for his former professor and mentor, who now serves in a new role as Maker-in-Chief. “I’ve always been motivated by people who have passion. And it shows in the way Cedric teaches. He is tough, but he is thoughtful and considerate. Cedric’s name should be on something that captures the fact that we have a brilliant person who thinks we need to have a space that will improve the students’ abilities.”

“Students have multiple ways to approach a problem, through technology of a higher order or through technology that quite frankly takes hands and effort. The Maker Space gives them the capability of learning both ways. It’s more education than just the tech itself.” - James Dillard, III


ALUMNUS CONNECTS TULANE TO MICROSCOPE’S HISTORY Two of the most groundbreaking scientific inventions in microscopy occurred in the U.S. at Tulane University, says Lary Walker (G ’76, ’79). Walker began researching the history of microscopy and its philosophical implications many years ago. During his research, he came across the unlikely story that linked the history of the microscope to his alma mater. He discovered that researchers John Leonard Riddell and John (J.) Lawrence Smith, both of whom were Professors of Chemistry at the University of Louisiana (now Tulane University), had made two major contributions in the field of microscopy—the inverted microscope

and the first practical microscope to enable binocular viewing of objects through a single objective lens. “One of the most powerful motivators for students is the desire to live up to what has happened in the past,” Walker says. Inspired by the work of Riddell and Smith, he decided to make a gift to the School of Science and Engineering in hopes that he will motivate students to create and innovate like the great people that came before them at Tulane. Walker’s generosity is enabling students like Afsheen Sajjadi to be rewarded for their creativity and vision. Sajjadi, a sophomore, recently received the “Maker of the Year” award for his independently designed truss that impressed award judges. Maker Space which opened in Fall 2016 is serving as a visionary center for design, invention, innovation, ideation and fabrication on Tulane’s Uptown campus.

“Students can only learn so much in the classroom. Ultimately, what we learn is up to us. Inspiration is what propels people to take up education as a personal journey rather than something that only happens in the classroom.” - Lary Walker
