Turng's research focus is on computer-aided engineering for gas-assisted injection molding. He will begin teaching Fundamentals of Injection Molding in the fall semester.

Shkel has been a research associate with the Rheology Research Center and the UW Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering since 1995. He received both his PhD and his MS from Moscow State University in Russia in 1989 and 1984, respectively. His PhD thesis was entitled "Effect of Particle Distribution on Rheological and Magnetic Properties of Ferromagnetic Fluids."

Shkel's research interests include the design and modeling of electro- or magneto-mechanical systems, mechanical systems with electric and magnetic field control of torque and stress transfer.
