Breathing cleaner air has become more relevant than ever in the last few years. What if, along with cleaner air, it smelled fresh and minty, too? For Iowa State University Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Professor Jacek Koziel, studying how to have clean air and reduce odor is nothing new. He has been in pursuit of healthy air quality for the last 15 years, using ultraviolet light to filter out airborne pathogens and produce air that ends up smelling like toothpaste.
Abigail Koep, entered the chemical and biological engineering Ph.D. program in 2022 and is one of only three ISU students to receive the illustrious Graduate Research Fellowship this year.
Roselynn Conrady, Ph.D. student in mechanical engineering (ME) and human computer interaction (HCI), has been accepted into the prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. She is one of just five students from Iowa State University to receive this honor. The five-year fellowship includes three years of financial support including an annual stipend of $34,000 and a cost of education allowance of $12,000 to the institution.
From small farms to big cities, natural disasters, rising temperatures and other factors of climate change impact everyone. Lu Liu, assistant professor in the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering, is using modeling to look into the future on the long-term impacts of climate change for two different ends of the population spectrum: urban and rural communities.
An Iowa State University research team that helped develop a demonstration-scale pyrolyzer capable of sequestering thousands of tons of carbon dioxide a year has received a prestigious milestone award from XPRIZE Carbon Removal, it was announced on Friday.
Two mechanical engineering (ME) students will have their opportunity to share their heart valve research on a national stage at this year’s Posters on the Hill event.

That plastic film packaged around many consumer products might become easier to recycle thanks to an interdisciplinary team of researchers at Iowa State University and beyond.
W. Samuel Easterling, James L. and Katherine S. Melsa Dean of Engineering, and Onur Avci, research assistant professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering, are members of a research team investigating modular steel plate floor framing and diaphragm systems in steel building structures. The new project is funded by the Charles Pankow Foundation.
With over 600,000 bridges in the United States, bridge safety and longevity is critical to safe transportation in America. By mandate, each bridge is evaluated at least every two years through a process called ‘bridge load rating,’ testing things like endurance and deterioration. But when considering the work put in to inspect every single bridge in the U.S. every two years, bridge load rating as we know it is very labor intensive and potentially costly.
Twelve Iowa State University graduate students have been selected to receive $120,000 in Brown Graduate Fellowship Program funding to support strategic university research over the next year.
This semester, Iowa State University’s Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering professor Dirk Maier and doctorate student George Obeng-Akrofi hosted fellow members of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology’s Engineers Without Borders (EWB-KNUST) student organization in Kumasi, Ghana.
