Science Pub Portland: Designing Robots to Walk and Run
Join Jonathan Hurst, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Oregon State University. Designing passive dynamics, which are generated by the mechanical hardware, and software control algorithms together in tight integration can drastically improve the performance of a machine as measured by efficiency, agility, and robustness to disturbances. 
April 18 | 7 p.m. | Empirical Theater at OMSI

Biomedical Engineering Society Industry Panel Event

Thermal Fluid Science Seminar with Dr. Adrienne Little from X (formally known as Google [X])
What’s Hot in Heat Transfer: Combining Perspectives from Academia, Government, and Industry on the Next Generation of Thermal Energy Systems
The vast majority of energy conversion processes occur through thermal pathways, and these pathways are dictated by the fundamental limitations of heat transfer and thermodynamics. Since the advent of the first heat engines, some of the basic building blocks of these systems have remained relatively unchanged, and to this day, are still responsible for substantial restrictions on system efficiency and cost. Effective innovation paths for the development of future thermal energy systems depend on new component design concepts, novel materials-focused manufacturing techniques, and incorporated system architectures. This talk will describe some of the most interesting recent advances in thermal system components, and discuss the roles of academia, government agencies, and industry in the complex path from discovery to final product implementation.
April 21 | 1 - 2 p.m. | Rogers 226
