  • Eugene Kim

    Assistant Professor Bioengineering College of Engineering and Computing

    Eugene Kim is primarily focused on engineering education and the scholarship of teaching and learning, specifically in the areas of active learning and team-based learning. His research interests have been in developing protein-based biomaterials using microbial platforms for the production of strong underwater bioadhesives and biocomposites. He received his BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan and PhD in Energy, Environmental and Chemical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis.
  • Associate Chair, Director of CEIE Graduate Program Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering College of Engineering and Computing

    Laura Kosoglu earned her PhD from Virginia Tech, where she studied factors that influence clay behavior for time-dependent processes such as secondary compression, shear deformation, and fault dynamics behavior as a National Science Foundation Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) Doctoral Fellow, and Marion Via Doctoral Fellow. Her work resulted in the development of a novel experimental method to measure the coefficient of friction between clay particles at the micro-scale using an Atomic Force Microscope.
