A core class for third-year students at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is ES96: Engineering Problem Solving and Design Project. Students work with clients on semester-long engineering projects. For the Fall 2020 semester meant working with the Harvard Face Mask Committee to create a quantitative model for mask discomfort and a risk analysis model for COVID-19 transmission in various spaces on campus.
Students from that semester decided to continue their work in the spring, submitting four manuscripts based on their research for publication.
Check out co-authors Mythri Ambatipudi, Paola Carrillo Gonzalez, Jordan Daigle, Emily He, Nikko Jeffreys, Esther Koh and Kazi Tasnim discussing the process of going from class project to publication.
