To celebrate, we’ve put together a list of our Brown women engineers, their research interests, and how to connect with them online:

R. Iris Bahar, Associate Professor of Engineering
Iris Bahar’s research interests lie broadly in the areas of computer architecture, electronic design automation, and digital circuit design.

  • Website: professional website with research details
  • LinkedIn: profile – connect with her!

Janet Blume, Associate Professor of Engineering
Professor Blume’s research focuses on mathematical aspects of solid mechanics. Questions of existence and uniqueness of solutions to systems of partial differential equations that arise in continuum descriptions of solid behavior are considered.

Karen Marie Haberstroh, Assistant Professor of Engineering (Research)
Prof. Haberstroh’s research addresses the use of novel nano-structured polymeric materials in soft tissue engineering applications.

  • Outreach: Program Manager & Co-PI Brown GK-12
  • Youtube: 2011 BMES Annual Meeting Program Chair

G. Tayhas R. Palmore, Professor of Engineering
Research projects in Professor Palmore’s laboratory include the synthesis of new biocomposites for use in batteries, fuel cells, and biomedical applications (e.g., biosensors, tissue engineering); and the design and fabrication of devices that use these new materials.

Janet Rankin, Adjunct Associate Professor of Engineering (Research)
Rankin’s research interests lie in the energetics of interfaces in fine-scale nano- and microstructures.

  • Service: Associate Director for Teaching Initiatives, MIT
  • Award: Wilson-DeBlois Award for contributions to graduate education

Petia Vlahovska, Assistant Professor of Engineering
Vlahovska’s research interests include Physico-chemical hydrodynamics, complex fluids, cellular biophysics, nonlinear dynamics: flow and transport in suspensions of soft particles; electrokinetic phenomena and electrohydrodynamics; and stability of lipid membranes.
