The cover story, which describes the process of making capacitive yarn—yarn that can store electricity, was authored by College of Engineering doctoral student Kristy Jost, along with Drexel’s Yury Gogotsi, PhD, Distinguished and Trustee Chair professor in the College of Engineering and director of the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute; Michel Barsoum, PhD, Distinguished professor in the College’s Department of Materials Science & Engineering; Genevieve Dion, an assistant professor in the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design and director of the Shima Seiki Haute Technology Laboratory; and Matthew Langenstein, an undergraduate in the College of Engineering.
