Our Team

Our team is composed of 20 students with different science and engineering backgrounds. We have decided to distribute our skills and knowledge into three teams: Stopping, Propulsion and Chassis. The stopping team designs and investigates a stopping mechanism for the car using chemical reactions. The propulsion team uses electrochemistry to provide voltage for our car and our chassis team focuses on the integration of both stopping and propulsion.

Lise Dahuron (PhD)

Professor Dahuron serves as the ChemBE Director of Undergraduate Studies. Before joining the department, she was a Researcher in Corporate R&D for the Union Carbide Corporation for more than 20 years. She recently received the McDonald Award for Excellence in Mentoring and Advising, which recognizes engineering professionals who go above and beyond to support the personal and professional development of students. She earned her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1987, and her Diplôme d’Ingénieur des Industries Chimiques from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Industries Chimiques (ENSIC) in 1982. In addition, Dr. Dahuron has developed a unique senior capstone class called Product Process & Design to give ChemBE undergraduates a taste of what it’s like to work in industry as a chemical and biomolecular engineer. Past product ideas have included everything from new medical gels to flowers that change color over a period of time.
