Mizzou’s third Neuro Big-Data Symposium comes ‘full circle’
The third Neuro Big-Data Symposium picked up where its two predecessors left off, taking the next step in the partnership of computing and biological sciences in aid of neuroscience research.
Bringing deep learning to materials science: MU team reaches breakthrough
Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms that has a wide array of potential uses, particularly as a candidate material for use in electronic devices, such as LED screens, touch panels, smart phones and solar cells. Graphene’s electrical and optical properties can be significantly altered for better usage. Discovering how these atoms tune to create these properties is one of the most pressing questions in materials science.
Water work: Duo presents at Emerging Researchers National Conference
The Emerging Researchers National Conference (ERN) in STEM selects top student researchers to present groundbreaking projects, with the goal of advancing their abilities to effectively communicate in the science community and ultimately their future careers. Two Mizzou Engineers were among the high-caliber students selected.
Driver distractions in work zones can be costly
Distractions in the car are everywhere. Texting, taking a call, changing the radio, attending to passengers, picking up a dropped item — all of them can cause us to lose sight of the road for a few seconds. But mere seconds can be the difference between life and death.
A fine fellow: Grad student receives prestigious federal fellowship
Jacob Kaltenbronn wasn’t planning on going to graduate school. Then he landed an undergraduate research opportunity in the transportation laboratory run by Professor Carlos Sun. And now, he’s the recipient of a prestigious graduate fellowship.
Mizzou Engineering duo wins national Traffic Control Device Challenge
Jacob Kaltenbronn and Zhu Qing are veteran competitors in the Traffic Control Device Challenge (TCDC), but this time they took home the gold.
Get smart: Phones collect critical road surface data
Your smartphone can already make video calls, play games with someone across the globe and track how well you sleep, how many steps you walk and how long your ride will take to get to you. What if smartphones could tell your department of transportation the quality of the roads you drive on?
Four faculty receive named professorships
Last spring, faculty representatives from the College of Engineering developed a Faculty Honors Program to adhere to the campus guidelines for awarding faculty fellowships and honors. To select this year’s honorees, Dean Elizabeth Loboa sought recommendations from the College’s Dean’s Council for Teaching Excellence and Dean’s Council for Research Excellence.
Defense using pretense: MU Engineering team sets new cybersecurity paradigm
Instead of simply reacting to cyberattacks after they happen, Mizzou Engineering researchers developed a new approach — cyber “defense using pretense.”
Studying behavior could lead to sustainability solutions
At first blush, Damon Hall’s office looks somewhat out of place. Tucked in the Natural Resources Building, his shelves are lined with the kind of reading material seemingly more suited for psychology or sociology. Looks, however, can be deceiving.
