Episode 69 - Material Science, Ethical Engineering, & Plastic-making Bees with Deb Chachra


I’m an associate professor at the Olin College of Engineering. I’m interested in making engineering education better: as well as teaching materials science and engineering design, I research the engineering student experience and I work with other engineering schools to help their faculty design new educational experiences. I also facilitate workshops around gender and technology. My engineering background is in biological and biomedical materials. And I’m usually working on some side projects that reflect my other interests.

I like talking to people and helping them learn, through presentations and workshops or just sitting down over a cup of coffee.
