Photo credit: CALTECHSix members of the Caltech community—Caltech professors Harry Atwater, Mory Gharib (PhD ’83), Robert Grubbs, and Guruswami (Ravi) Ravichandran, and JPL staff members Dan M. Goebel and Graeme L. Stephens—have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), an honor considered among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. The academy welcomed 67 new American members and 12 foreign members this year. Included among the new class are four Caltech alumni, Dana Powers (BS ’70, PhD ’75), Michael Tsapatsis (MS ’91, PhD ’94), Vigor Yang (PhD ’84), and Ajit Yoganathan (PhD ’78).Harry Atwater, the Howard Hughes Professor of Applied Physics and Materials Science and director of the Resnick Sustainability Institute, was cited for his contributions to plasmonics—the study of plasmons, coordinated waves of electrons on the surfaces of metals. Atwater is developing plasmonic devices for controlling light on a nanometer scale. Such devices could be important for the eventual creation of quantum computers and more efficient photovoltaic cells in solar panels.Mory Gharib is the vice provost for research and the Hans W. Liepmann Professor of Aeronautics and Bioinspired Engineering. His election citation notes his contributions to fluid flow visualization techniques and the engineering of bioinspired medical devices. Gharib’s biomechanical studies are often coupled with medical engineering; for example, by studying the fluid dynamics of the human cardiovascular system, he and his group are better able to develop new types of prosthetic heart valves.Dan M. Goebel, a senior research scientist at JPL, was honored for his contributions to low-temperature plasma sources for thin-film manufacturing, plasma materials interactions, and electric propulsion.Robert Grubbs, the Victor and Elizabeth Atkins Professor of Chemistry and corecipient of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, was elected for the development of catalysts that have enabled commercial products. For example, Grubbs and his team developed a new method for synthesizing organosilanes—basic chemical building blocks. Normally these molecules are made with expensive and rare precious metals, but Grubbs’s group has found a way to catalyze the reaction using a cheap and abundant potassium compound.Guruswami (Ravi) Ravichandran is the John E. Goode, Jr., Professor of Aerospace, professor of mechanical engineering, and director of the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories (GALCIT). He is cited by the NAE for his contributions to the mechanics of dynamic deformation, damage, and failure of engineering materials. Ravichandran has studied the behavior of polymers under high pressures and strains, and how the peeling of an adhesive material—like Scotch Tape—may be modeled as a crack propagating in a medium.Graeme L. Stephens, the director of JPL’s Center for Climate Sciences, was elected by the Academy for the elucidation of Earth’s cloud system and radiation balance.

first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Many market analysts comparing year-over-year metrics are looking at data from both 2020 and 2019 because, at this time last year, pandemic stay-at-home restrictions thwarted homebuying and selling, which makes some comparisons unreliable.No matter what numbers you are considering, homes right now are selling at their fastest pace on record, with about half sold within a week after listing, according to the latest statistics from Redfin. Compared to 2020 the median home price increased 18% to $344,625, and asking prices reached $356,175, both all-time highs for those metrics, Redfin reported. Another record, of homes sold in the yearlong period ending April 18, 2021, 45% sold at over the asking price. They were on the market an average of 21 days, the briefest since 2012 and 16 days fewer than in 2020.Compared with 2019, pending home sales were up 23% from the same period. New listings of homes for sale were down 10% from the same period in 2019. Active listings dipped 47% from the same period to a new all-time low.“There has been an ongoing debate at Redfin about whether fear of coronavirus infection was keeping homeowners from selling. With a third of American adults now fully vaccinated and still hardly any homes being listed for sale, we’re close to settling that debate,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather. “Homeowners are staying put because if they move and buy another home they will face a very competitive housing market as buyers, and they don’t need to sell to take advantage of record-low mortgage rates. They can just refinance their current home. On top of that, builders are struggling to construct new homes given an ongoing lumber shortage. Without more homeowners listing, buyers are scrambling to compete for the limited number of homes on the market, which continues to drive prices up to new heights.”The full housing market report from Redfin’s data team is available at Redfin.com.
