MTU, SJSU Partner to Enhance Athletic STEM Graduate Education Pathways

A team from Michigan Tech recently traveled to San Jose State University (SJSU), an institution recognized as both a minority-serving institution (MSI) and a Hispanic-serving institution (HSI). The MTU team included Suzanne Sanregret (ATH), Will Cantrell (GS), Gabriel Escobedo (CDI), Kat Hannum (SS), Randy Dwyer (master's student in biomedical engineering) and Melissa Baird (SS).

The team collaborated with SJSU's Chair of Kinesiology Tamar Semerjian and student-athlete Ivanna Anderson-Villela on the "Supporting Athletic STEM Graduate Education: Building Cross-Institutional Alliances" hosted by SJSU and MTU with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

SJSU President Cynthia Teniente-Matson opened the session and welcomed the attendees, who included SJSU's athletic director, student-athletes, football and women's basketball coaches, deans, athletic and academic advisors and DEI leaders, as well as a representative from the American Academy for the Advancement of Science, Titilayo Omotade.

This workshop marked the first step in creating equitable pathways for student-athletes of minority backgrounds who are interested in pursuing post-baccalaureate STEM degrees.

Jeana Collins Named First Recipient of Gary Sparrow Endowed Faculty Fellowship

Jeana L. Collins, an associate teaching professor of chemical engineering at Michigan Technological University, has been named the first recipient of the Gary Sparrow Endowed Faculty Fellowship. Collins is recognized for her exceptional teaching and pedagogy.

A gift of $2 million from Gary Sparrow, a Michigan Tech alumnus and retired chemical engineer, funds the new fellowship and also supports the Chemical Engineering Learning Commons. Sparrow grew up in Orchard Park, New York. He earned his B.S. in Chemical Engineering at Tech in 1970, and went on to work in chemical processing at several manufacturing companies in Ohio.

“I am honored to be the first recipient of the Gary Sparrow Endowed Faculty Fellowship,” said Collins. “Every interaction I have had with Gary has shown how much he cares about this department and the undergraduate education we provide.”

At Michigan Tech, Collins is highly regarded for her student-centric style of teaching. She makes a serious effort to keep the students engaged throughout her lectures.

“Dr. Collins is an indispensable member of the department,” said Michael Mullins, chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering (ChE). “She has made a strong, positive impact on the educational experience of our undergraduate students from the moment she set foot in the door.”

As the Gary Sparrow Endowed Faculty Fellow in Chemical Engineering, Collins will provide leadership in education and scholarly activities at Michigan Tech. Those activities include developing new teaching pedagogies, engaging in publications and presentations at national conferences and embarking on special projects — including writing her first books. The first of those books will be about the capstone senior design sequence, in collaboration with ChE's Associate Professor Tony Rogers. The second will focus on her computer-aided problem-solving course.

Collins assumed the responsibilities as advisor for Michigan Tech’s AIChE Student Chapter, rejuvenating the chapter with her engaging style, energy and enthusiasm.

“Dr. Collins recognizes that laboratory courses must be taught differently,” added Mullins. “An extra layer of complexity is involved in motivating students while they work on teams, either in the UO Lab, or for a capstone senior design project, and this is an area where Dr. Collins truly excels.”

Collins earned a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 2012 and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Michigan Tech in 2018, advised by Professor Adrienne Minerick.

Collins first started working the department full-time as a chemical engineering lecturer in 2016. She was promoted to the rank of associate teaching professor in July 2021. She was selected as one of the faculty members for the Dean’s Teaching Showcase in spring 2023.

She currently chairs ChE's Curriculum Committee, in addition to serving on its Executive, Computer, and Student Awards committees, and both its chair and faculty search committees. Collins also serves as advisor for the Michigan Tech Dance Team, and is involved with the Consumer Product Manufacturing student Enterprise team.

MSE Seminar with Mary O'Brien

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is hosting a seminar presented by Mary O'Brien, staff scientist on the Materials Compatibility Team in the Sigma Manufacturing Sciences Division at LANL, at 1 p.m. Thursday (Oct. 12) in M&M 610.

O'Brien's presentation is titled "Question Everything and Regret Nothing: A Story About a Decade of Trying to Understand Hydrogen Effects on Metals."

From the abstract:
Hydrogen embrittlement (HE) is a long-standing challenge in metallurgy due to unpredictable failures observed in numerous metallic systems exposed to hydrogen containing environments. Ductility loss is attributed to any combination of the following: formation of brittle hydrides upon supersaturation, decohesion along boundaries due to trapped hydrogen, or hydrogen enhanced localized plasticity (HELP) due to soluble hydrogen. I spent 7 years of my life trying to understand how hydrogen can cause internal cracks to form in oil and gas pipelines, and what we can do to prevent it. I will discuss some of what that journey looked like for me, so that I can inform you why I would have gone on to LANL to propose investigating the effect of hydrogen on uranium. Uranium, with its low symmetry crystal structure, presents a unique opportunity to observe the proposed hydrogen-induced early-onset plasticity without added complications of slip system interactions that occur in most engineering materials. Electron backscatter diffraction has revealed that hydrogen charging reduces twin growth. These results will be discussed in the context of recent advanced characterization results alongside plans for future work. But this won’t be just another boring technical talk. It’s a talk about what it has looked like for me to evolve into a scientist and what it means to ask hard questions. I will give examples of failures and successes I have had along the way in hopes of showing that behind every CV is a story of ups and downs that scientists rarely ever talk about in public. I hope to show that anyone interested in questioning everything, regardless of past choices, can learn to be a scientist.

O'Brien's research focus is understanding hydrogen embrittlement phenomena in a wide variety of metallic systems, with a current focus on actinide materials. She earned a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from Washington State University, and M.S. and Ph.D. in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from Colorado School of Mines. Her graduate research involved understanding hydrogen-induced cracking in low carbon pipeline steels for oil and gas applications. Prior to attending graduate school, she worked as a civilian nuclear engineer at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard refueling Ohio-class submarines.

O'Brien spends her free time exploring New Mexico on bikes, skis, and sometimes skates with her partner and her corgi Jesse. She is passionate about volunteering to enhance diversity both in STEM and in the outdoors and has taken on several roles both locally and nationally toward this goal.

Lindy Oujiri, Tess Hayes Named GLIAC Players of the Week

Michigan Tech volleyball's Lindy Oujiri and Tess Hayes have been named GLIAC Players of the Week.

Oujiri was named the GLIAC Offensive Player of the Week, and Hayes was honored as the GLIAC Setter of the Week.

Oujiri led the Huskies to their first weekend sweep of the season with wins over Purdue Northwest and Parkside at the SDC Gym. The senior captain averaged 4.29 kills per set while hitting .306 and totaling three blocks. She tallied 13 kills in the sweep over the Pride on Friday (Oct. 6) and 17 kills in the 3-1 victory over the Rangers on Saturday (Oct. 7).

Hayes set the offense in the weekend sweep. She tallied 85 assists, averaging 12.14 per set. The first-year added 20 digs, three blocks and a pair of kills on the weekend. She notched 31 assists and eight digs Friday in the sweep of the Pride and a season-best 54 assists with 12 digs against the Rangers on Saturday.
