TUNE IN: ME Grad Students Give Whirlwind of TV & Radio Interviews After Their Shoelace Research Goes Viral

Friday, April 14, 2017

ME graduate students Christopher Daily-Diamond and Christine Gregg have had a pretty busy week (or being that they are grad students, perhaps we should say a BUSIER week!). Their research, conducted alongside ME Professor Oliver O'Reilly in the Dynamics Lab, on why shoelaces come untied, has piqued interest around the world after being published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A earlier this week. Daily-Diamond and Gregg have temporarily set down the laces and picked up the microphone, participating in several TV and radio interviews from across the globe. Check out some of their interviews below, and take a look at what is coming up!
