"What's the Matter with Matter?" / CCBM Virtual Session

June 29, 2020 - 10:00am to July 3, 2020 - 11:00am

Presented by: UC Merced Professor Roberto C. Andresen Eguiluz, Materials Science and Engineering
June 29-July 2, 2020
10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.
via Zoom

During these sessions, using bicycles as an example, we will explore materials science, classification of materials, materials selection and important materials properties. You will learn how bicycles have evolved over a century and how inventors and engineers have chosen materials to fabricate bicycles based on their unique properties to increase bicycle performance, aesthetics and specificity -- ultimately making bicycles more fun.

Professor Andresen Eguiluz has been with UC Merced since July 2019. His main research efforts are in the field of biotribology (friction and lubrication of biological surfaces) and mechanobiology (mechanics in biology). In his free time, he likes to hike, camp and cycle with his family and friends.
