Waterfalls, fish and suction cups

Clemson biologists have been studying the biomechanics of waterfall-climbing fish inhabiting oceanic islands. What they learn about how organisms evolve and adapt to survive could result in better suction cups.

Deborah Moss ’95

Deborah Moss didn’t plan to be a teacher. She wanted to be a nuclear engineer in the U.S. Navy, but there was one problem — at the time, the Navy didn’t allow women to serve aboard submarines. Instead, the Navy asked if she’d like to teach at the Navy’s Nuclear Power School. Although that assignment ended and Moss is now retired from the military, she’s still in the classroom.

Clemson researcher wins NASA FINESST award

Madeline Clyburn, a doctoral student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, has been selected for the prestigious grant to investigate the physics of black holes. Her computer simulations will be crucial to the discovery of binary black hole systems in the distant universe using light waves and gravitational waves.

Grad student is part of NASA’s quest for a better battery for space

Batteries for applications in space need to be lighter, longer lasting and able to survive extreme temperatures. Alan Rowland, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, has received a prestigious NASA SC Space Grant fellowship that could help lay the groundwork.
