Professor wins engineering education award

first_imgThe American Society of Engineering Education recently featured Jason Hicks, assistant professor of chemical and bio-molecular engineering, as a “Leader in Engineering Education.”Hicks earned the recognition due to his contributions and dedication, both inside and outside the classroom to the engineering program, according to a press release.Hicks, a Kentucky native, attended Kentucky Wesleyan College and graduated with a B.S. in chemistry. He then attended Vanderbilt University to obtain a B.E. in chemical engineering and Georgia Institute of Technology for his graduate work in chemical engineering. He attributed his abilities as an instructor to several of his own professors throughout his education.“I had multiple remarkable instructors who inspired me to pursue a career in education,” Hicks said. “They were clearly dedicated to their students, and they spent a lot of time investing in me. They imparted knowledge, skills and passion for learning and being creative to me, and this career gives me the opportunity to regularly interact with students and pass these things along to them.”Hicks teaches several classes within the department of chemical engineering and conducts research on the synthesis and characterization of materials and catalysts for energy applications.“We are focused on developing new catalysts to generate clean liquid fuels,” Hicks said. “This includes removing sulfur from diesel fuels, converting [carbon dioxide] to liquids, producing biofuels from non-edible biomass feedstocks and producing chemicals from renewable resources.”Hicks said the feature was especially meaningful given his relatively short time as a professor.“This is my fourth year at Notre Dame teaching primarily senior undergraduate students, and I am very excited to be recognized as a junior faculty member,” Hicks said. “The [department of chemical and biomolecular engineering] has excellent educators, and I have had many opportunities to learn from my senior faculty.”Hicks said he receives his passion for engineering from its potential to enhance lives.“An engineering education provides students with skills needed to design, construct and operate processes that impact our society,” Hicks said. “Engineers are needed to develop technologies for energy, food, pharmaceutical, textile, manufacturing, transportation and computer industries.“I am passionate about engineering because we can use this knowledge to directly and indirectly enhance our lifestyles.”Tags: Leader in Engineering Educationlast_img read more

Crosstown showdown

first_imgFreshman forward Penelope Hocking has scored 12 goals this season and competes on the Under-20 Women’s National Team. (Emily Smith | Daily Trojan)The No. 2 women’s soccer team will face off No. 6 UCLA  Friday night at the StubHub Center, bringing a close to the regular Pac-12 season. After a win against No. 20 Colorado and a shutout tie against Utah, the Trojans are now 15-1-2 overall and 8-1-1 in conference play. USC will take a seven-game undefeated streak into the matchup. The 13-3-1 Bruins are coming off eight consecutive victories, the most recent being against Colorado. Sophomore attacker Ashley Sanchez played an integral role in both of the Bruins’ goals. After a Colorado foul early in the 19th minute, Sanchez launched a free kick to the left side, which helped create a scoring opportunity for redshirt junior midfielder Chloe Castaneda. The Bruins kept Colorado at bay, holding it to zero shots on goal and a 1-0 lead at the close of the half. Colorado came out strong in the second half, creating multiple scoring opportunities with a shot that hit the post in the 63rd minute and a narrowly missed free kick in the 64th. Buffs attacker Taylor Kornieck nailed a cross in front of the left post, scoring the tying goal and bringing the score to 1-1.In the 77th minute, UCLA’s Sanchez scored the game-winner when she stole the ball from a Colorado and launched it from close range past the Buffs keeper. Sanchez will be the main offensive player on the Trojans’ radar heading into the game on Friday. She leads the Bruins in all scoring categories with 23 points, 8 goals and seven assists. Sanchez has also either scored a goal or provided an assist in each of UCLA’s last eight games. The Trojans currently have a 398-minute streak going of keeping opponents scoreless, but the defense will need to be on high alert for the Bruins’ aggressive offensive plays. Sunday’s win also marked the fourth time in USC history that the team has marked 13 clean sheets in a season.  On the offensive end, the Trojans have outscored their opponents 46-7. Their goal differential of 39 leads the Pac-12 conference. Having outshot opponents 354-144 this year, the Trojans will need to continue working hard to control possession from the beginning in order to create scoring opportunities against the Bruins, whose goalies tail right behind redshirt sophomore Trojan keeper Kaylie Collins with a combined 41 saves. Four of the last five wins in a USC-UCLA matchup have gone to the Bruins, including the last two in a row. The last time the two teams faced off, the Bruins took the Trojans into overtime, with Sanchez scoring the winning goal in the 91st minute. The Trojans ended up tying the Bruins for a second-place finish in the Pac-12. UCLA leads the Crosstown Showdown series against USC with an all-time record of 24-6-1. The Trojans are tied at the top of the Pac-12 standings this season with No. 1 Stanford at 25 points each, while the Bruins follow close in second with 24 points. In addition to playing for a chance at the Pac-12 Conference title, both UCLA and USC head into the game vying for favorable seeding in the NCAA tournament. The Trojans are ahead of the Bruins coming in at second place on the most recent United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division I Women’s national poll with 828 total points and two first place votes, compared to the Bruins’ 679 points and sixth place ranking.  The Trojans will host the Bruins in the crosstown showdown at StubHub Center Friday at 7 p.m.last_img read more
