Milo Koretsky is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at Oregon State University. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from UC San Diego and his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley, all in Chemical Engineering. He currently has research activity in areas related engineering education and is interested in integrating technology into effective educational practices and in promoting the use of higher-level cognitive skills in engineering problem solving. His research interests particularly focus on what prevents students from being able to integrate and extend the knowledge developed in specific courses in the core curriculum to the more complex, authentic problems and projects they face as professionals. Dr. Koretsky is one of the founding members of the Center for Lifelong STEM Education Research at OSU.
Bill Brooks is a postdoctoral scholar in the School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering at Oregon State University. His Ph.D used written explanations to concept questions to investigate technology mediated active learning in the undergraduate chemical engineering classroom. He current interests involve using technology to enhance educational practices in promoting conceptual understanding. He is the primary programmer of the AIChE Concept Warehouse and his current focus is on its continued development, specifically creating and integrating Interactive Virtual Labs.
Cindy K. Waters is an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering at NCA&T State University. She received her B.S. and M.S from Virginia Tech in Materials Science and Engineering Department and a 2004 PhD in Mechanical Engineering, from NCA&T. Her research is in the development and characterization of novel syntactic foams and various porous metals via powder metallurgy and foam casting. She is also significantly involved in engineering education research in the areas of assessment studies of classroom material science pedagogical implementations; case studies in various engineering disciplines and; engineering faculty barriers to adopt evidence-based (or nontraditional) teaching methods . She serves as the College of Engineering liaison to ASEE and advises the Society of Women Engineers student chapter and leads the students in developing and implementing yearly outreach events for the K-8 female community. She is author of many peer-reviewed conference proceeding for the ASEE Annual Meetings and the FIE meetings.
Dr. Brady Gibbons is an Associate Professor of Materials Science in the School of Mechanical, Industrial, & Manufacturing Engineering at Oregon State University. His research specializes in structure-process-property relationships in multifunctional thin film materials. His group focuses on processing, novel instrumentation development, and integration science; new dielectric, superconducting, semiconducting, and pyroelectric materials for energy conversion and energy storage; ferroelectric and piezoelectric thin films for microelectromechanical systems; scanning probe and x-ray diffraction characterization methods; and spectroscopic ellipsometry. Specifically he is interested in developing novel integration science strategies to combine material functionalities that result in significantly enhanced, or even new, properties. Prior to arriving at OSU he spent eight years at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) as a postdoctoral researcher and member of the technical staff. There, his research on 2nd generation superconducting wire led to an R&D 100 Award in 2004. He received his Ph. D. in Materials from the Pennsylvania State University in 1998. Dr. Gibbons is a 2012 NSF CAREER awardee, as well. That program is designed to develop new environmentally benign piezoelectric materials, which can be used for a variety of sensing and actuation applications including sonar, ultrasound, energy harvesting, and microelectromechanical systems.
