Speaker: Dr. Anne Silverman, Department of Mechanical Engineering

Dr. Anne Silverman wrapped the Fall 2010 season of the Science Study Breaks series with her enthralling presentation on the biomechanics of movie monsters. Silverman used clips from GODZILLA, KING KONG, THE HOST, ALIENS and CLOVERFIELD to illustrate the environmental and physical factors that might make the monsters' existence, if not implausible, at least vastly more problematic. Silverman also spent time connecting technologies used in modern filmmaking to her own focus of study—enhancing the lives of amputees through better prosthetic engineering.
