When Mechanical Engineering graduate student Greg Teitelbaum participated in the SciTerp video competition last year as an undergraduate, he did not know he would be the face of the entire University of Maryland just a year later.

For the past few weeks, a photo of Teitelbaum, who works in the Product Innovation and Realization Laboratory Suite (PIRLS), has adorned the university’s home page, with a link to a short bio of Teitelbaum explaining why he chose to come to Maryland as well as the YouTube link to Teitelbaum’s SciTerp video. Teitelbaum said the photo and bio went online on April 28th, about two weeks after Ellen Ternes from the university’s communications office talked to him about the idea.

“[Ellen] was approached by the lady in charge of the home page and was asked if she knew of a student who would want to be on the home page,” Teitelbaum said. “I was like, ‘Yeah, sure, I’ll be on the home page.’”

Ternes said Linda Martin, the webmaster for the site, e-mailed her to ask if she knew of any students who would be interesting to spotlight on the page. Ternes said she thought of Teitelbaum immediately “because of the SciTerp video and because of his personality.”

Though Ternes and Teitelbaum met while the younger was an undergraduate student in the Gemstone program, the ME grad student now works as a lab manager for the PIRLS lab for ENME 371 and 472. To learn more about the PIRLS lab and Teitelbaum’s research, go to www.pirls.umd.edu.
