  1. Holly graduated in May 2018 with her B.S. degree in FABE, specializing in food engineering

    Meet Holly Huellemeier: Food Connoisseur & Engineer

    Feb 21, 2019

    Everyone likes their food a different way. Some people enjoy the comfort of simple, homemade foods that they know the exact taste of while others seek the thrill of creating and trying new and exotic foods. Holly Huellemeier, current FABE graduate student, falls into the second category. 

    From Georgetown, Kentucky, Holly has always loved cooking. When she’s in the kitchen, she’s constantly exploring her options and finding out new recipes and ingredients from outside the box.

  2. Congratulations to Matthew Klopfenstein and Jenna Lee

    Two FABE Students named New Faces of ASABE Honorees

    Feb 14, 2019

    The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has announced the 2019 New Faces of ASABE Honorees, which include two Ohio State seniors: Jenna Lee and Matthew Klopfenstein. New Faces of ASABE are announced annually just ahead of National Engineers Week. Through the stories of these individuals, New Faces of ASABE aims to inspire their peers, the public, and future engineers who may follow in their footsteps

  3. Meet Grant McHugh, current CSM student

    Meet Grant McHugh: Volunteering to Build a Better World

    Feb 10, 2019

    Students who attend The Ohio State University are often exposed to eye-opening, mind-opening, and heart-opening experiences. Grant McHugh, a third-year Construction Systems Management (CSM) major, is a prime example.

  4. When not working on his research in the lab, Dylan is a big fan of the outdoors.

    Meet Dylan Beam: Biological Engineering Major and Undergraduate Researcher

    Jan 28, 2019

    Growing up in Newberg, Oregon, Dylan wouldn’t be surprised if the saying, “there are more trees than people in the state” rang true.

    Fortunately for Dylan, he has always had an innate love for the outdoors. To this day, every time he visits home, he goes on some type of adventure in the open air, whether it be camping, hiking, or just going out to the coast.

    FABE Researcher Creates Innovative Medical Gloves

    Jan 21, 2019

    WOOSTER, Ohio—An Ohio State University researcher and her team have created the first medical glove that can block radiation while meeting federal guidelines and not triggering allergic reactions.

    This glove also will eliminate the need for medical professionals working with radiation to double-glove to follow the federal requirement that they protect against both bloodborne pathogens and radiation.

  6. Karen Mancl, Professor in the Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering

    Mancl to work with China Environment Forum

    Jan 14, 2019

    Karen Mancl, Professor in the Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering at The Ohio State University, was recently accepted to work with the China Environment Forum (CEF) at the Woodrow Wilson Center in the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington D.C.  For 20 years, the Wilson Center’s CEF has centered its research and projects on combatting energy and environmental challenges in China.

    Ryan J. Winston is an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering and Civil, Environmental, and Geodetic Engineering at the Ohio State University.  Winston focuses on the sustainable management of water in urban, suburban, and rural areas. 

  9. Celene's interest in brewing led her to specialize in Food Engineering

    Meet Celene Gielink: Not Your Traditional Engineer

    Nov 9, 2018

    After moving from state to state, Celene ended up completing her bachelor's degree in Food Engineering from Ohio State and has stayed on in pursuit of her graduate degree. With a passion for fermented/alcoholic brewing, she has found the program to be the perfect place for her unorthodox ideas and life experiences. 

  10. A new study in northwest Ohio’s Maumee River watershed will look closely at farm fields with elevated phosphorus. The aim: improve Lake Erie’s water quality while maintaining yields of crops. (Photo: Getty Images.)

    FABE Researchers Receive $5 Million Grant to Study Runoff from Elevated Phosphorus Fields

    Nov 9, 2018

    Some farm fields in northwest Ohio’s Maumee River watershed have more phosphorus than their crops can use. Called “elevated phosphorus fields,” such fields may be at higher risk of contributing to Lake Erie’s harmful algal blooms. That’s the premise of a new five-year, $5 million study that hopes to learn about those fields and lower that risk by creating new public-private partnerships.
