A groundbreaking new study published in Nature Physics has revealed that geometry influences biofilm growth more than anything else, including the rate at which cells can reproduce. The research shows that the fitness of a biofilm is largely impacted by the contact angle that the biofilm’s edge makes with the substrate.
Linda Green and Mary Peek
College of Sciences faculty Linda Green and Mary Peek were recently awarded Innovation Incubator grants to advance experiential learning in their courses. Peek's initiative in the Biochemistry Laboratory II class will enable students to engage in hands-on research, while Green's Urban Ecology students will focus on studying the impact of green infrastructure in urban settings.

Anisha Kanukolanu
College of Sciences graduate Anisha Kanukolanu is among the Georgia Tech students and alumni who have received a Fulbright U.S. Student Program award to study/conduct research.
Krishma Singal operates knitting machine
The team used experiments and simulations to quantify and predict how knit fabric response can be programmed. By establishing a mathematical theory of knitted materials, the researchers hope that knitting — and textiles in general — can be incorporated into more engineering and manufacturing applications.
Dana Randall
School of Mathematics Adjunct Professor Dana Randall, a leading authority in the field of mathematics, recently delivered a Congressional briefing on the crucial connections between mathematics and national priorities.
