Research Stories

'Preforming' magic

Tsu-Wei Chou, Pierre S. du Pont Chair of Engineering at the University of Delaware, is part of an international team of researchers that is examining the feasibility of using additive manufacturing to produce 3D preforms.

Learning from leeches

In order to get a better grasp on the biodiversity of mammals in Sumatra, University of Delaware graduate student Sarah Weiskopf spent two weeks collecting leeches in Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park and conducting genetic analyses of their blood meals.

“They dedicated serious time and thought to what they were writing and this is their opportunity to share their knowledge with friends, family and cohorts in the world of historic preservation,” said David Ames, CHAD director and professor of public policy and administration, geography, and material culture studies.
