A hurricane hits. You survive the storm, but your house doesn’t. And to complicate matters, you don’t have the documentation to prove the house was actually yours to begin with. What do you do? Construction engineering doctoral student Jess Talbot recently traveled to Puerto Rico, a country still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Maria back in 2017. Along with her mentor, Assistant Professor Cristina Poleacovschi, Jess studied how communities are … or are not … able to reconstruct after a catastrophic event.

Iowa State University (ISU) broke ground on a new state-of-the-art facility this month, a facility that will help propel the University into answering a major need.
“If it takes energy and takes resources that folks don’t have to use or to burn, they’re not going to use it,” says Gretchen Mosher, a professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering at Iowa State University. “And it will just become one of those projects that the Western people come in and develop and then it sits there after they leave.”
A new screening tool developed by researchers at Iowa State University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture can dramatically reduce the time to detect strains of bacteria that cause a serious livestock disease and that impact the health of millions of people worldwide.
