MIT researcher, Penn State alum to discuss nanomaterials in aerospace

August 29, 2011

Brian L. Wardle, associate professor of aeronautics and astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), will present "Bulk Nanostructured Materials for Advanced Aerospace Structural Applications" at 1:15 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 2, in 125 Reber Building on Penn State's University Park campus.

The seminar is free and open to the public.

Wardle, who is the founder and director of the Nano- Engineered Composite aerospace Structures (NECST) Consortium, will discuss recent developments regarding the use of nano-engineered advanced composites in aerospace engineering.

Wardle graduated from Penn State in 1992 with a bachelor of science in aerospace engineering. He went on to receive his master's of science and doctorate from the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT. In 2003, he joined the faculty at MIT. His research interests lie in structural and material topics.
