Professor Scott White Memorial Tribute

University of Illinois aerospace engineering professor Scott R. White, an innovator of self-healing and self-regulating materials, died on May 28, 2018, of cancer at age 55. In this tribute video, White discusses his work on autonomous systems and shows his keen sense of humor in outtakes from an interview about one of his group's publications. White was recognized globally as an expert in autonomous materials—materials that can adapt or respond on their own. His Autonomous Materials Systems Group at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the U. of I. developed self-healing plastics, electronics, batteries and coatings; coatings and materials that indicate when they are damaged or strained; self-destructing devices to reduce electronic waste; and many other innovations to make materials safer and more reliable on both the micro and macro scale.
