Dean’s Message: Power to the People Who Give

As the College of Engineering rises with the tide of the UMass Rising campaign, much of our continuing success depends on the foresight, philanthropy, and loyalty from a flood of alumni and friends. As valued supporters of our community, you control the extra surge that propels our achievement. “UMass Amherst’s College of Engineering has been a leader in engineering education, research, and service to the profession and to our world,” notes UMass Amherst Chancellor Kumble R. Subbaswamy. “With your help, we will continue our efforts to attract and develop the highest quality faculty and students to fortify a supportive and innovative teaching, learning, and working environment. The college is the highest-ranked public engineering institution in New England. Our goal is to ensure its continued ascent.” Our “continued ascent” demands the very best faculty. As you will read on the following pages, significant incentives such as the Armstrong Professional Development Professorship, the Siadat Chemical Engineering Early Career Faculty Development Award, the James Douglas Early Career Faculty Development Award, and the recently established Armstrong/Siadat Endowed Professorship in Materials Science remain the best method to guarantee that our faculty are handed the freedom to pursue groundbreaking engineering research and teaching. World-class institutions also recruit superb students and retain them with forward-thinking scholarships, programs, and facilities. In this report you will see how the Bartos Annual Scholarship, James M. Smith ’67 Scholarship Fund, Kenneth A. Lloyd Engineering Scholarship, Eugene M. Isenberg Scholarship, and similar funds are all vital examples of enlightened philanthropy that gives our most gifted (pun not intended) engineering students the wherewithal to perform at the top of their game. In addition, far-sighted donors are supporting our student learning hubs and laboratories, like the newly upgraded Altra Industrial Motion Innovation Shop and M5 student

workplace and maker space. Such facilities act as hotbeds of innovation, creation, and experiential learning. In a similar vein, corporate donors Sensata Technologies, Cisco, ISO New England, DENSO, and New England Wire Products have invested in our incomparable Career Planning and Student Development Office, which offers our students the critical job-hunting skills to launch their careers. Likewise, more than 20 idealistic donors—led by the Raytheon Company, BAE Systems E&IS, Robert M. Gorman, Janice R. Rossbach, and Karen and Chuck Peters—are championing engineering’s underrepresented students by funding our Diversity Programs Office. Alumnus Robert Haggerty (B.S. ’74 MIE) has also supported the new college chapter of the Society of American Military Engineers. Some 150 years after its founding, UMass Amherst still stands as the crowning glory of the ommonwealth’s five-campus system. We in the College of Engineering understand that our dedicated alumni and friends help adorn that crown with the precious stones that are our dazzling academics and students. — College of Engineering Dean Tim Anderson

Jessica Schiffman

IN OUR CHEMICAL ENGINEERING (ChE) DEPARTMENT, several enlightened philanthropists have given some of our most productive faculty members the power to do what they do best: revolutionary research and teaching. To wit, brilliant young researchers JESSICA SCHIFFMAN, SHELLY PEYTON, and WEI FAN are rising stars, not only in the ChE department, the College of Engineering, and UMass Amherst, but in their fields. Keeping them on board at the college was a major priority, as several very wise donors realized. Thus Schiffman became the initial recipient of the Professor James Douglas Early Career Faculty Development Award. Schiffman will use her funding from the Douglas Award to support her lab’s research into developing polymer hydrogels that resist microbial contamination. Schiffman’s findings could transform today’s medical bandages and textiles by infusing them with a healthy resistance to microbe infection. Schiffman also received a $174,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to support research into improving ultrafiltration membranes. The NSF funding sustains Schiffman’s work on a vital separation technology in drinking water purification plants and a broad range of industries, including beverage clarification, blood filtration/treatment, protein purification, and metal ion recovery. Schiffman’s NSF grant, titled “BRIGE: Engineering Antifouling Ultrafiltration Membranes Using Polycationic Nanofibers,” was one of only 25 projects funded by the NSF from approximately 260 applications across the nation. Another potent incentive for faculty excellence is the Armstrong Professional Development Professorship, established in 2001 with an endowment of $850,000 by JOHN AND ELIZABETH ARMSTRONG of Amherst and a $650,000 matching grant from the University of Massachusetts President’s Distinguished Professorship Initiative. The Armstrongs have also collaborated with two longtime donors at the college, ChE alumnus BARRY BAHRAM SIADAT (Ph.D. ’79 ChE) and his wife AFSANEH SIADAT, to form a high-minded new fund, which creates the Armstrong/Siadat Endowed Professorship in Materials Science. The purpose of the fund will be to support an endowed professor in the area of materials science in the ChE department. The Siadats also established the Early Career Faculty Development Award in the ChE department in 2012. For his professional accomplishments and many efforts on behalf of UMass Amherst, Siadat received a Distinguished Achievement Award at the university’s Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony in 2014.

new way. “What we’re trying to understand is why breast cancer doesn’t spread randomly,” explains Peyton about her project for the NIH. “It almost always ends up in a few areas of your body, and that’s what makes it so deadly.” Peyton was also one of 22 researchers nationwide who have been named Pew Scholars in the Biomedical Sciences by The Pew Charitable Trusts in 2013. Pew scholars receive $240,000 over four years to pursue their projects without restriction. In addition, her innovative lab has received impressive funding to support various projects, including a $590,000 NSF grant and $198,000 from the American Heart Association. For her accomplishments, Peyton received the 2014 Barbara H. and Joseph I. Goldstein Outstanding Junior Faculty Award from the college. Meanwhile, Fan has been selected to receive the prestigious 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award from 3M Corporation. Fan and his research colleagues have discovered a new chemical process to make p-xylene, an important ingredient of common plastics, including recyclable plastic bottles, from biomass. The 90-percent yield from lignocellulosic biomass is the highest yield achieved to date.

INNOVATION ALL-STAR Former College of Engineering Dean MICHAEL MALONE was honored as one of the 2013 Innovation All-Stars in higher education by the Boston Business Journal and Mass High Tech. Malone is the vice chancellor for research and engagement at UMass Amherst and is also the Ronnie and Eugene Isenberg Distinguished Professor of Engineering. Most recently, he helped secure $95 million in state funding from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center to outfit the university’s newest science facility, the Life Sciences Laboratories, which will house three unique life science centers. Operating collectively as the UMass Institute for Applied Life Sciences, it engages the campus with regional industries by connecting them with academic leaders in their field. Malone was also the main catalyst in the 2011 launch of the UMass Innovation Institute (UMII). Designed to move UMass technologies and scientific capabilities into the real-world economy, UMII has successfully broken down barriers that keep public/private research collaborations from realizing their full potential. In addition, Malone established the UMass Innovation Challenge in 2005 to assist and reward students and young alumni who want to pursue novel business ideas, develop new technologies into marketable products, or initiate new approaches to difficult problems. Since 2005, the UMass Innovation Challenge has provided $625,000 in awards to 73 different student-led teams, many of which have gone on to commercial success. In student news, MARIANNE SLEIMAN, a junior ChE major who does research in Peyton’s lab, is one of three Commonwealth Honors College students to receive scholarships from the highly competitive Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program. Sleiman was one of only

283 applicants from a field of 1,166 mathematics, science, and engineering students who received the coveted scholarships. In another ultra-competitive process, grad student ALYSSA SCHWARTZ won one of the esteemed NSF Graduate Research Fellowships this year. She was joined by two recent alumni from the ChE department who received NSF fellowships elsewhere. One was DANA THORNLOW, now a graduate student at Cornell University; the other was MAX NOWAK, now a graduate student at the University of California Santa Barbara. MICHAEL S. SARLI (B.S. ’75 ChE), who is an indispensable lecturer at the college, was the winner of the 2013 Outstanding Senior Alumni Award.

IN THE CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING (CEE) DEPARTMENT, donors with 20-20 foresight have been maximizing the potential of our students by creating graduate and undergraduate scholarship funds, upgrading key laboratory spaces, and subsidizing some of the department’s most valuable humanitarian work. Graduate student VARUN SRINIVASAN is the 2013–14 recipient of an Edwin V. Sisson (B.S. ’68 CEE) Doctoral Fellowship, geared toward first-year doctoral candidates from the College of Engineering who do research in sustainable energy or other environmental subjects. Srinivasan works with CEE faculty advisor CAITLYN BUTLER on her innovative Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) Latrine. Dubbed the “Green Latrine,” the sanitation technology for the developing world pulls off a rare triple play: It treats waste, produces usable compost, and generates electricity, all in one brilliantly conceived process. As Srinivasan has explained about his own research on the Green Latrine: “Central to this technology are the microorganisms that oxidize organic waste and use an anode as their electron acceptor, producing electricity…. A poorly understood phenomenon in microbial fuel cells is the role of competition between microbial communities that can transfer the electrons to an anode and microorganism that use other electron acceptors naturally present in waste…. I am studying changes in the microbial ecology associated with the MFC anode as a result of competition, leading to a better understanding of the conditions that can optimize energy recovery from the waste.” Another long-term CEE supporter, RONALD J. BARTOS (B.S. ’80 CEE), has established a permanent scholarship endowment in honor of the UMass Rising campaign. In that regard, Bartos has supported an annual scholarship given in his name at the College of Engineering since 2007. Now the Bartos Scholarship Fund will annually provide financial support to a student in the college with demonstrated financial need and in good academic standing. In addition to those fine incentives for students, the CEE department has embarked on a progressive $100,000 campaign to upgrade the “Strength of Materials Lab,” the key component in a course required for all CEE students as part of the department’s core curriculum. The course teaches students how to determine stresses and deformations of structural members subjected to axial loads, torsion, bending of beams, behavior of columns, and transformation of stress and strain.

DONORS WITHOUT BORDERS On April 12, the Engineers Without Borders UMass Amherst Student Chapter hosted its seventh annual Auction & Social, attended by approximately 100 guests. Support for

this admirable organization is an exercise in democratic funding. Contributions from auction participants, sponsors, and donors help cover the direct costs of sustaining the chapter’s

Ghana and Kenya projects. These socially conscious projects are made possible only through generous support from a giving community that values developing young engineers with a humanitarian worldview. After expenses, funding from the auction and EWB supporters netted $25,600 to continue the chapter’s worthy projects in Africa. The money raised will be put to good use in the coming year. During the winter break in January of 2015, the new Ghana program will send three students and their professional mentor to Ghana for the first assessment trip. There they will work with Ghana ACT, a non-government organization, to help a community needing a rainwater catchment system, with additional projects to be identified in the coming years. Meanwhile, the money raised will send up to seven students and one faculty mentor to western Kenya in January of 2015 for the chapter’s 10th trip, creating clean drinking water for a community of several thousand subsistence farmers. EWB students are designing a new rain-

water catchment system for the Namawanga Primary School, which enrolls roughly 700 students but has no clean drinking water on site.

FACULTY FECUNDITY Our Northeast Climate Science Center, whose university director is CEE Department Head RICHARD PALMER, awarded over $800,000 for research that plans how to help species and ecosystems adapt to climate change in the region. Three of the funded studies will directly involve UMass Amherst scientists. In October of 2011, the U.S. Department of Interior established the center here—one of eight in the country—and awarded the university a $7.5-million federal grant over five years to host and lead a consortium of seven universities. On February 4, Palmer also delivered a UMass Amherst Distinguished Faculty Lecture titled “Climate Change and the

Sustainability of Cities and Natural Resources: Characterizing Uncertainties for Citizens and Decision Makers.” In other faculty news, the Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) announced that CEE Professor CHUL PARK has been awarded the $100,000 2013 Paul L. Busch Award. WERF is honoring Park with its largest prize for a research project that has the potential to transform how wastewater is treated. Park will use the Busch Award to demonstrate the ability to treat wastewater with low oxygen requirements and efficiently collect biomass that can be anaerobically digested and generate methane.

GOODWILL RUNNING

CEE Ph.D. candidate JOE GOODWILL won a $5,000 American Water Works Association 2013 American Water Scholarship. Goodwill was selected for this scholarship due to his exceptional academic abilities, industrial experience, and leadership while contributing to the advancement of science in the field of drinking water. His current research focuses on ferrate, which is a powerful form of iron that can function as an oxidant, coagulant, and disinfectant when applied to water treatment. Goodwill also ran the ING New York City Marathon on November 3 to raise funds and awareness for the nonprofit Water for People. CEE graduate student ANGELA BERTHAUME won a super-competitive NSF Graduate Research Fellowship this year. WENYE CAMILLA KUO-DAHAB, MICHELLE LY, and ALEXANDRA CORINNE TESTA of the CEE department also won honorable mention for the NSF fellowship. CEE major JESSICA BOAKYE was honored as a 2013-14

“Rising Researcher” by Research Next, the UMass Amherst website that recognizes the outstanding research, scholarship, and creativity of the students and faculty on campus. Boakye’s work recently won her a spot as one of the “New Faces of Civil Engineering” in the nation by the American Society of Civil Engineers. ANATOLY M. DAROV (B.S. ‘94, M.S. ‘96, CEE) won the CEE Outstanding Junior Alumni Award this year.

departmen Akshaya Shanmugam

THE SCHOLARLY PILGRIMAGE OF GIFTED GRADUATE STUDENT AKSHAYA SHANMUGAM is a tribute not only to her own hard work and tremendous talent, but to a perfect storm of donorship. Her education in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department has been propelled by three monetary incentives: a 2012–2013 Hluchyj Fellowship; a 2014 Eugene M. Isenberg Scholar Award; and $7,500 in prize money from the ninth annual University of Massachusetts Innovation Challenge final business plan competition. It has been a vortex of harmonious elements! On April 7, Shanmugam’s team, called mDiagnostics, garnered enough prize money from the Innovation Challenge to develop a Hepatitis C screening device, aimed mainly at economically strapped people without the ability to obtain current Hepatitis C testing. Shanmugam’s testing device would cost only $100, which is only 20 percent of the screening costs at hospitals. It is portable, and it produces results in less than an hour, compared to the average turnaround time for current field tests, which is two-to-four weeks. Her prize money at the Innovation Challenge consisted of the first annual $2,500 Glass Award, sponsored by the Robert and Sandra Glass Innovation Fund, and a $5,000 David Wolf Prize, sponsored by Wolf Greenfield. Shanmugam’s mDiagnostics research is also supported by her Isenberg Scholarship and Hluchyj Fellowship. Shanmugam was one of two doctoral students named as 2012-13 Hluchyj Fellows at UMass Amherst. The Hluchyj Graduate Fellowship was started by MICHAEL HLUCHYJ (B.S. ’76 ECE) and his wife THERESA “TERRY” HLUCHYJ, a 1977 alumna from the College of Nursing. The Isenberg Scholarship was established by the late EUGENE M. ISENBERG and his wife RONNIE ISENBERG. In addition, on October 18 of 2013, the ECE department held its 2013 Ph.D. Poster Session, in which Shanmugam won first place and also received the Special Tang Award, sponsored by the Shirley and Ting-wei Tang Endowment. Another forward-looking gift was made this year by ROBERTO PADOVANI (M.S. ’83, Ph.D. ’85, ECE). He gave $50,000 to the ECE student hub M5, a so-called “maker space” for the department’s undergraduates to advance their technical interests through experimentation, exploration, interaction, and entrepreneurship. Padovani’s gift will be matched by his generous employer, Qualcomm. An additional historically important scholarship reached an enviable milestone this year, when the number of Smith Scholars climbed beyond 200 (to 206). In 2001, alumnus JAMES M. SMITH (B.S. ’67 ECE) established his fund to support excellent engineering students in need of financial assistance. The rest is history, made by 206 extraordinary students.

CAREER MOVES MICHAEL ZINK has come up with a brilliant solution for a very expensive problem: The various applications for networks of electronic sensing devices such as radars or cameras cannot be shared. For example, radar networks are applied for both weather forecasting and tracking aircraft. Camera sys-

Joseph Bardin

tems might be applied for border security or Coast Guard lifesaving activities. Currently each application for every system requires its own, often ultra-expensive, sensing infrastructure to allow the individual units to operate in unison. Zink is about to change all that. Zink has received a five-year grant of approximately $400,000 from the prestigious NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program to support his work on sharing closed-loop sensor networks, which will lead to substantial savings on infrastructure, manpower, and maintenance costs. Another NSF CAREER winner was JOSEPH BARDIN, whose research will greatly improve the cryogenic electronics used in scientific instruments, thereby enabling new and more powerful experimental tools for scientific researchers. Bardin’s $400,000 NSF research will design novel broadband silicon circuits, operating at ultra-low power dissipation and cooled to cryogenic temperatures, thereby boosting the informationgathering capabilities of current, cryogenically cooled scientific instruments by about 10 times.

ECE Professor AURA GANZ has received a two-year, $238,321 grant from the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority to install a prototype of her electronic navigation system for the visually impaired in the Arlington Metro Station. Called PERCEPT, Ganz’s invention is a seeing-eye directory for the blind and visually impaired which will provide them with verbal directions, electronic signs, and a virtual information booth for finding their way around the subway station. For all her accomplishments, Ganz was chosen this year to receive the college’s Outstanding Senior Faculty Award. Concurrently, ECE Professor RAMAKRISHNA JANASWAMY was chosen as the college Outstanding Teacher. Among many other teaching accomplishments, Janaswamy was nominated for the UMass Distinguished Teaching Award in 2011 and has received a very high average of 4.44 out of a maximum 5 for his “Student Response to Instruction” evaluations over the last 10 years. ECE Professor DO-HOON KWON published a book with Springer Publishers titled Transformation Electromagnetics and Metamaterials: Fundamental Principles and Applications. Meanwhile, four former researchers from the ECE department received a special Group Achievement Award from NASA for developing the advanced weather radar known as a Highaltitude Imaging Wind and Rain Airborne Profiler (HIWRAP), used for hurricane monitoring. ECE Professor Emeritus DAN SCHAUBERT, his former doctoral student JUSTIN CRETICOS (now at MITRE), LIHUA LI (former Ph.D. student of ROBERT MCINTOSH now at NASA), and for mer research faculty member JIM CARSWELL were all on the HIWRAP radar team.

The all-freshman ECE team of JUSTIN MARPLE, AARON LUCIA, ROHAN KAPOOR, and DYLAN PARE won the Micromouse Contest at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Region 1 Student Conference. Micromouse is an event in which small robotic mice solve a 16 foot by 16 foot maze. Senior ECE major MARCO CHIANG finished in the top six out of more than 500 “amazing hackers” that competed in the Yale Hackathon in New Haven, Connecticut. Not to be outdone by Yale, the UMass Amherst chapter of IEEE held its own 24-hour “HackUMass” for 84 student hackers from 24 teams

across the Northeast. Plus, a team of ECE juniors won the Trinity College Fire-Fighting Robot Contest. ECE major WALTER BROWN has been chosen by Research Next as one of four “Rising Researcher” students on campus. In alumni news, ERIC A. SWANSON (B.S. ’82 ECE) delivered the 14th annual Tang Lecture. MASSOUD AMIN (B.S. ’82, M.S. ’85, ECE) won the ECE Outstanding Senior Alumni Award, while THOMAS J. LARAMEE (B.S. ’94 MIE and M.S. ’97 ECE) and DAVID M. LUCIA (B.S. ’92 ECE) shared the ECE Outstanding Junior Alumni Award.


Innovation Shop

A CRITICAL MASS OF DEVOTED ALUMNI AND FRIENDS of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Department has sharpened the cutting edge of engineering technology, education, and skills in MIE by financing the Altra Industrial Motion Innovation Shop. If you were a student using this center for hands-on learning in the department, you could literally shop till you drop. The upgraded, updated, retrofitted shop provides space-age space for the latest industrial tools, instruments, and computers to support MIE projects, including all their design, modeling, manufacturing, and testing activities. On January 30, the MIE department hosted the ribbon-cutting ceremony for this trailblazing shop, named in honor of Altra Industrial Motion, led by president and CEO CARL CHRISTENSON (B.S. ’82, M.S. ’84, MIE), for its lead gift supporting fundraising efforts to modernize the space. “The goal of the new MIE Innovation Shop,” says MIE Professor FRANK SUP, one of the masterminds behind the Innovation Shop redesign, “is to create a space where students can translate their classroom knowledge from theory to practice, giving them the experience of creating a design and learning what it takes to make it real. In a sense, the Innovation Shop completes the loop on their education by providing the students insight into the power of their engineering education.” The shop’s retrofit will provide students and faculty with state-of-the-art equipment, including new 3D printers, a water jet cutter, and a four-axis milling machine.

REAPING THE WIND Several exceptional MIE grad students were vested to conduct their revolutionary research through timely fellowships. For example, MIE doctoral student ALEXANA CRANMER was the 2013-14 recipient of the Kenneth A. Lloyd (B.S. ’73 MIE) Fellowship, which quite literally empowered her to reap the wind. She is participating in the highly selective graduate program in Offshore Wind Energy Engineering, Environmental Science, and Policy, started with a $3.2-million grant from the NSF Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship. Cranmer describes her research interests as “taking interdisciplinary approaches to the challenges of re-

newable energy development and integration with the grid.” MIE doctoral student CHERYL ANN NICHOLAS was also named as one of the two 2013–14 Hluchyj Fellows. Nicholas will be conducting research on the widespread issue of hospital “alarm fatigue.” Distractology 101, an interactive driving simulator program developed by the Arbella Insurance Human Performance Laboratory and its director, MIE Department Head DONALD FISHER, has now trained at least 3,600 new drivers about the dangers of distracted driving since it began touring the Northeast in 2010.
