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.
