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.

Two Ph.D. students in Cyclone Engineer Kristin Yvonne Rozier’s research group have been selected for NASA Pathways civil service positions, a highly prestigious internship program that combines research with the opportunity to obtain a full-time NASA position upon completion.
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.”
This is one in a series of stories related to the 150th anniversary of civil engineering at Iowa State University. From the small town of Manning, Iowa, Henry J. Brunnier went on to accomplish big things in structural engineering. In 1900, Brunnier became the first person in his town to attend Iowa State College (now … Continue reading How an Iowa farm boy became one of San Francisco’s elite structural engineers
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.
