Team develops new method to detect cardiovascular dysfunctions

Team develops new method to detect cardiovascular dysfunctions

A Mizzou research team has developed a way to better identify cardiovascular dysfunctions through non-invasive sensors that translate signals from the body into information physicians can use to inform treatment decisions. It’s a novel breakthrough that could improve patient care and also allow individuals to monitor heart conditions from home. The work essentially proves that [...]
Sustainability starts at the local level, new book shows

Sustainability starts at the local level, new book shows

Sustainability is a global challenge that’s going to have to be addressed at the local level. That’s a key takeaway from a new book co-authored by Mizzou Assistant Professor Damon Hall. “Bringing Sustainability to the Ground Level: Competing Demands in the Yellowstone River” provides a case study for how communities can protect their environments while [...]
Mizzou Engineers study markings states use to direct drivers through work zones

Mizzou Engineers study markings states use to direct drivers through work zones

Mizzou Engineers have wrapped up a comprehensive review of the materials states use to temporarily direct drivers through highway work zones and the various methods they rely on to remove those markings. Brown Henry Brown, a research engineer, along with Praveen Edara, chair and professor of civil and environment engineering, released their findings in a [...]
Mizzou Engineer studies trail bridges as part of E4C Fellowship

Mizzou Engineer studies trail bridges as part of E4C Fellowship

Abdul Rashid Mussah studied trail bridges as part of an Engineering 4 Change Fellowship. Trail bridges that connect remote communities are working, a Mizzou Engineer has found. Abdul Rashid Mussah, a PhD candidate in civil engineering, investigated the effectiveness of the structures as part of a prestigious fellowship with Engineering 4 Change. During his five-month [...]
Chemical Engineer using metamaterials to harvest terahertz energy

Chemical Engineer using metamaterials to harvest terahertz energy

Rectenna are combination antenna-diode that possess great utility in converting high-frequency, i,e, 10s-100s terahertz (1012 cycles per second), energy,  into electricity. This conversion can happen either in terms of direct irradiation from sunlight, or indirectly through blackbody waste heat from hot processes, into direct current (DC) electronic power.  This waste heat accounts for losses of [...]
Mizzou Engineers to present at IEEE Blockchain Conference

Mizzou Engineers to present at IEEE Blockchain Conference

A Mizzou Engineering team has developed a secure Blockchain platform that insurance companies could use to streamline claims processing. Researchers — under the direction of Associate Professor and Greg L. Gilliom Professor of Cyber Security Prasad Calyam — will present that work at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Blockchain [...]
Engineering team develops system to segment, track cells from images

Engineering team develops system to segment, track cells from images

Rina Bao and Noor Al-Shakarji developed a system to segment and track cells from microscopy video images. A Mizzou Engineering team won a Best Paper Award at an international workshop earlier this month. Rina Bao, who just completed her PhD, and PhD student Noor Al-Shakarji received the accolade for developing a two-stream deep learning network [...]
Researchers use simulated environments to train AI

Researchers use simulated environments to train AI

Associate Professor Derek Anderson, PhD candidate Brendan Alvey and Assistant Research Professor Andrew Buck discuss the simulated data they're using to train artificial intelligence (AI). A Mizzou Engineering team is hoping to lead artificial intelligence (AI) into a new era by forgoing real-world data in favor of simulated environments. “State-of-the-art AI is based on a [...]
