Princeton University is part of a partnership of eight universities that has received a six-year, $20 million federal grant to pursue broad approaches to improving the efficiency of production and use of fossil fuels, while minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and harm to the environment.
The students, Sara Fridovich-Keil and Siddhartha Jayanti, are among 252 undergraduates who were recognized with the scholarship after proposing innovative solutions to research problems in their fields.
Researchers at Princeton University have found that adding a three-dimensional component to computer vision greatly increases both the accuracy and efficiency of the process.
A new method for controling instabilities in roiling masses of superhot particles promises to improve the performance of a key element in nuclear fusion, a potentially safe, clean and nearly limitless source of electric power.
Jennifer Rexford, chair of the Department of Computer Science, has been named the 2016-2017 Athena Lecturer by the Association for Computing Machinery, the largest professional society in computing research and education. The award recognizes female researchers who have made fundamental contributions to computer science.
Cornelia Huellstrunk, associate director of Princeton University's Keller Center since 2009, has been appointed to a new position of executive director, reflecting major growth in the center's efforts to innovate education and to foster entrepreneurship.
Emily A. Carter, a Princeton faculty member since 2004 and founding director of the University's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, has been selected as the next dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science. Her appointment is effective July 1.
In a unique effort to combine the expertise of university scientists and conservation organizations, Louis Bacon’s Moore Charitable Foundation has pledged $1.25 million to establish the Science-to-Action Fund at Princeton University.
The historic drought that parched Brazil over the last two years was not just a water-supply problem — it was also a power problem. The nation's heavy use of hydroelectricity, which had made it a model of renewable energy, contributed to an increased risk of rolling blackouts in some of Brazil's largest cities during severe droughts. Now, Princeton researchers are joining with colleagues at a Brazilian university to help the operator of Brazil's electric grid and the country's major utilities
A smartphone application that alerts drivers to local road hazards could help avoid accidents and be a step towards improving transportation policy, Princeton University professor Garnet Chan told an audience during the hackathon sponsored by the Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP) and Code for Princeton on February 27 and 28.
Five Princeton faculty members and four graduate teaching assistants received “Excellence in Teaching” awards from the University’s Engineering Council and Graduate Engineering Council, which are the undergraduate and graduate student organizations of the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
Producing better quality of ultrasound images could be as easy as taking a selfie. Describing the process to judges at the Keller Center's Innovation Forum Feb. 24, Princeton University graduate student Jen-Tang Lu said his technology could improve the diagnosis of many medical conditions.
In a recent study, a researcher at Princeton and colleagues at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have come up with a formula that describes the maximum heat transfer in such tight scenarios. Surprisingly — and encouragingly — the formula suggests that a million times more heat transfer is possible between close objects than previously thought.
The degree of gender imbalance in an academic department can be predicted by assessing the emphasis on "natural talent" or "brilliance" in that field, said Princeton University Professor Sarah-Jane Leslie Feb. 3 in a lecture in Maeder Hall at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment.
