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.

Going global pays off for Mizzou Engineering alum Garrow

If you want an example of how studying abroad can expand horizons and provide students with global experience that employers desire, take Mizzou Engineering alumna Carly Garrow.

Assistant dean, STEM colleagues land grant to study identity expression

Identifying and understanding contextual, cultural and developmental differences among identity expression for historically underrepresented students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) is key in supporting and growing these populations in STEM fields.

Mizzou team shines at computational protein prediction competition

Accurately predicting how protein sequences will fold into 3D structures is key to determining their biological function and essential in areas such as protein design, protein engineering, drug design, disease research, and precision medicine. MU Engineering William and Nancy Thompson Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Jianlin Cheng and his MULTICOM team are at the forefront of this nascent field, with the accolades to match.

MU Engineering professor helps solidify new bridge inspection standards

Mizzou Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Glenn Washer has long been a proponent of more common-sense, risk-based federal bridge inspection standards, and he’s done the research to back them up. And now, those standards have become federal policy.

EECS summer programs shed light on cyber security, machine learning

The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department had another busy summer, hosting research-focused college students from around the country at its National Science Foundation-funded Research Experience for Undergraduates: Undergraduate Research in Consumer Networking Technologies and several high school students as part of its Summers@Mizzou Hacker Trackers program.
