For ten weeks during the summer, 12 undergraduate students from across the country are getting the chance of a lifetime on the UH campus, becoming engineering researchers in the Cullen College’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU).

Powering the Air and Sea: Haleh Ardebili Receives Two Grants to Store Energy

Powering the world: Haleh Ardebili, Bill D. Cook Assistant Professor in mechanical engineering, with her bendable battery roughly the size of a business card

Imagine a battery that doesn't fit neatly into its appointed slot, one that's neither cylindrical nor square shaped, but perhaps as thin as a business card and as stretchy as Play Dough. If you can envision that, then you've just jumped into the mind of Haleh Ardebili, Bill D. Cook Associate Professor in mechanical engineering at the UH Cullen College of Engineering.

SURF Provides Undergrad Research Opportunity for Cullen College Junior

Plenty of college students around the country are using the summer months to catch up on their favorite TV shows, work on their base tans and reconnect with old friends. For one Cullen College junior, however, these three months off from school are the perfect opportunity to sharpen her analytical skills and dive head-first into the world of undergraduate research.

Researcher Improves Batteries through Hybrid Nanoparticles

Ardebili

From finding directions to making phone calls, working on laptops to driving hybrid and electric cars, much of life is lived through battery-powered devices. It’s no surprise, then, that developing better batteries is a major thrust of science and engineering research.
