Faculty News

Daniel De Kee organized a meeting on the "Mechanics of Nonlinear Materials" in Bannff Canada in May 1998. He presented five lectures over the summer including two invited contributions at the Annual Canadian Society for Chemistry in British Columbia and at the 8th Australian National Conference on Rheology in Adelaide.

Richard Gonzalez will be on sabbatical during the Spring, 1999 semester. He plans to visit the South Shetland Islands, Japan, and France, among others.

Vijay John has returned to the department after spending two years at the National Science Foundation. Vijay was a program director in the Chemical and Transport Systems Division of the Foundation.

Daniel J.I. Lacks gave a seminar in the Physics Department at Brock University (Canada) entitled "Mechanical Instabilities and the Properties of Glasses and Liquids under External Stresses" in September.

Victor Law has taken a two-year leave of absence to take a position at the University of Limerick in Ireland. His job there is to start up a new degree program in Chemical Engineering. For the first time in history, the Irish economy is booming. Many new pharmaceutical and electronics manufacturing plants have been and are being constructed, so there is a significant need for more chemical engineers. Dr. Law will be making numerous contacts at universities throughout the U.K. and the E.U. He hopes that these associations will open new avenues for research funding and also provide a new source of graduate students for Tulane on his return.
