Social computing researcher views code as an engine for change

Andrés Monroy-Hernández, assistant professor of computer science, reflects on career and heritage.

Civil engineer connects materials research to sustainability — and her family’s history

Karina Alventosa, a Ph.D. student in civil and environmental engineering, reflects on her career path, graduate research and leadership roles at Princeton.

Part Six: 'Venture out into new territories'

In this section of #PrincetonE100, we look at materials science, the foundations of old Yankee Stadium, a Nobel Prize winner, and the value our school places on collaboration.

Metropolis Project backs solutions for safer, more resilient cities

Princeton’s Metropolis Project has awarded a new set of grants to investigate how pollutants move through cities; improve prediction of storm hazards; and test new technologies to prevent coastal flooding, harness solar energy, and help autonomous vehicles navigate in adverse weather.

Study shows how cities can consider race and income in household energy efficiency programs

A study offers a roadmap for cities to address inequalities in energy use by providing fine-grained methods for measuring both income and racial disparities in energy use intensity.

Research meets the challenge of measuring urban carbon emissions

A group of scientists and urban-policy specialists attempt to cut through the confusion about urban carbon accounting approaches by laying out seven key service sectors that city leaders can evaluate to gauge — and reduce — their carbon emissions.

Artificial leaves, floating breakwaters and musical memories are among recipients of 2021 innovation grants

Research on an artificial leaf, a new class of hydrogel-based material that can self-regulate fluxes of water, heat and gas, is among 19 projects awarded a total of more than $2 million in Innovation Research Grants by the School of Engineering and Applied Science in 2021.

Engineering in the Service of Humanity

At our 100-year anniversary, the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Princeton is in a unique position to drive forward major initiatives in bioengineering, robotics, the future of cities, data science and quantum computing, and our continuing investments in high-impact work in energy and the environment.

Building technology opens door to increased ventilation, lower energy costs

Radiant cooling is an often-overlooked cooling technology that could enable more ventilation in buildings around the world while substantially decreasing energy costs, Princeton researchers found.
