Isolating together: Checking in with Anette “Peko” Hosoi

The MIT community, like most of the world, is scattered and distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Here, Mary Beth Gallagher, from MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering (MechE), checks in with Anette “Peko” Hosoi, a professor in MechE as well as the Associate Dean for Engineering in MIT’s School of Engineering. They chat about staying connected, innovating to solve problems, and why “MIT was made for this.”

Our mission is to advance knowledge; to educate students in science, engineering, technology, humanities and social sciences; and to tackle the most pressing problems facing the world today. We are a community of hands-on problem-solvers in love with fundamental science and eager to make the world a better place.

The MIT YouTube channel features videos about all types of MIT research, including the robot cheetah, LIGO, gravitational waves, mathematics, and bombardier beetles, as well as videos on origami, time capsules, and other aspects of life and culture on the MIT campus. Our goal is to open the doors of MIT and bring the Institute to the world through video.
