By sharing life lessons, Mizzou’s Rogers shapes future engineers
The mindset of a survivor informs Reg Roger's life’s work as a researcher and educator. And his drive to pass on what he’s learned to future generations of engineers from all backgrounds recently earned him the Stanley C. Israel Regional Award.
Mizzou Engineering’s Chadha protecting your data, identity
While hacking databases is the main way for interested parties to gain users’ personal information, it’s not the only possibility. Intrepid attackers can use perfectly benign means to do so. How? By using readily available aggregate data — for example: census data, medical data focused on how many people in an area suffer from a specific illness, consumer trend data, etc. — and using it to focus on specific individuals.
Nearing a new generation of pain management
Treatment of chronic pain, diabetes, nerve damage and many other debilitating diseases that affect millions globally would benefit from medicine and pain management methods targeting the source of the pain. And an interdisciplinary team, including Mizzou Engineering’s Yi Zhang, is one step closer to making such a breakthrough a reality.
Team Trauth takes big step toward sustainable stormwater solution
The mother-daughter duo of Kate and Ginny Trauth have taken another big step toward a more efficient and cost-effective method of managing stormwater — a critical environmental issue that affects both infrastructure and water quality across the globe.
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.
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.
