Imagine a battery that doesn't fit neatly into its appointed slot, one that's neither cylindrical nor square shaped, but perhaps as thin as a business card and as stretchy as Play Dough. If you can envision that, then you've just jumped into the mind of Haleh Ardebili, Bill D. Cook Associate Professor in mechanical engineering at the UH Cullen College of Engineering.

After a major oil spill, government agencies and energy companies have limited time to make decisions on how to remediate the disaster and clean up the spilled oil. Officials currently rely on computational models that predict the behavior of the oil plume in order to determine the best strategies for containing and cleaning up the oil.
