Mizzou Engineers, USGS Create Tool to Test Oil in Water

Researchers are creating a tool that would allow oil in water to be tested using a portable device, smart phone and sample vial. Those responding to oil spills could soon have an easier way to determine the environmental impacts. A Mizzou Engineer is helping develop a tool to analyze water samples and measure oil levels [...]

Mizzou Engineer Part of Team Working to Restore Organ Function

A Mizzou Engineer is part of an interdisciplinary team from across the country selected to study the lower urinary tract in hopes of restoring bladder function to those who suffer from urinary incontinence. About 50% of women and 25% of men suffer from bladder dysfunction. Giovanna Guidoboni, a professor in electrical engineering and computer science [...]
Mizzou Engineering Hosts Virtual AIPR Conference

Mizzou Engineering Hosts Virtual AIPR Conference

EECS faculty members Prasad Calyam andKannappan Palaniappan co-hosted this year's AIRP Conference, using the new IDE Lab on campus. The event has historically been held at the Cosmos Club in Washington, D.C., pictured on the monitor. Mizzou Engineering hosted the 49th annual Applied Imagery Pattern Recognition (AIPR) conference last week, proving that a virtual event [...]
EPA Awards Grant to MU Researchers for Reduction of Food Loss and Waste

EPA Awards Grant to MU Researchers for Reduction of Food Loss and Waste

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded a grant to Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Zhiqiang Hu in support of the reduction of food loss and waste using anaerobic digestion (AD). “Anaerobic digestion is when microbes break down organic materials, like food and organic waste, to carbon dioxide and methane without using oxygen,” Hu said. “If […]

Rebuilding Heart Valves Using Tissue Engineering

Rebuilding Heart Valves Using Tissue Engineering

Current medical technology to replace heart valves is problematic for the patient. Patients with mechanical heart valves must take anticoagulation therapy to prevent blood clots. This solution can cause morbidity. Patients with bioprosthetic heart valves face degeneration and calcification of the implanted valve over time, which may cause more than one surgery in the lifetime […]

Improving Efficiency of Gas-Powered Water Heaters

Improving Efficiency of Gas-Powered Water Heaters

A faculty-led research team at Mizzou Engineering is collaborating with a national laboratory and private industry to develop technology that may ultimately lead to less natural gas consumption in consumer-grade gas water heaters. Hongbin (Bill) Ma, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, is the primary investigator of an MU research group that is tasked with […]

Improving Workflow in an Intensive Care Unit

Improving Workflow in an Intensive Care Unit

A hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU) can be a very busy place. Time is of the essence when treating patients, yet time is a limited commodity for ICU nurses. They treat patients, fill out paperwork, talk with patients’ families and much more every day. But time spent not treating patients hinders patient care. And in […]

Meet Giovanna Guidoboni

Meet Giovanna Guidoboni

  Do you have to be good at math to be an engineer? Not necessarily. But it helps to have a good mathematician working alongside you. Meet Giovanna Guidoboni, Mizzou Engineer, mathematician and interdisciplinary researcher. Guidoboni—who became a tenured professor on Sept. 1, 2020—has joint appointments in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science [...]
Study: Drivers Experience Four Levels of Attentive ‘Gaze’ in Response to Alerts From Pre-crash Warning Systems

Study: Drivers Experience Four Levels of Attentive ‘Gaze’ in Response to Alerts From Pre-crash Warning Systems

Drivers experience four levels of attentive ‘gaze’ in pre-crash warning systems from Mizzou News on Vimeo. A collision avoidance system, or pre-crash alert generated by a vehicle, can often be found as an optional safety feature in today’s vehicles to help reduce possible accidents and save lives. However, these systems are not always tested in […]
