DR@ISU would like to offer our congratulations to Dr. Halil Ceylan, Associate Professor with the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering here at Iowa State University for the recent recognition of his research! I’m sure I can speak for most
of us when I say that I am done with all this snow. Hazardous commutes, slick side walks and delayed flights are just some of the many hurdles presented by winter weather. Thankfully, Dr. Ceylan might just have a solution to all our winter woes! His research, which was highlighted in a story by KCCI, is exploring the technology behind applying a superhydrophobic coating (comparable to Teflon) to pavements, which would prevent liquids from adhering to the pavement.
Dr. Ceylan has been an active and enthusiastic member of DR@ISU! You can view more of his research, here.
