McGaughey, Malen, and Shen Attend International Conference on Phononics and Thermal Energy Science in Shanghai
Mechanical Engineering Faculty members, Alan McGaughey, Jonathan Malen, and Sheng Shen traveled to Shanghai, China this week to attend the 2nd International Conference on Phononics and Thermal Energy Science.
All three MechE faculty were invited to the conference as speakers, and McGaughey and Malen each gave two one-hour research talks to graduate students and faculty.
With Thermal Systems and Energy Conversion - at the Nanoscale - being a key research area in the Mechanical Engineering department; McGaughey, Malen, and Shen's presence at this International conference brings their work into sharper focus within the global academic community.
Earlier this year, McGaughey and Malen's work was highlighted in a feature story published online by CMU's College of Engineering.
