Purdue Polytechnic’s Marcus Rogers and Umit Karabiyik are developing technology that could help parolees avoid recommitting crimes and better reintegrate into general society.
Hersh Rai, a graduate student in Purdue Polytechnic’s Dept. of Computer and Information Technology, worked with Nicholas Toan-Nang Vu, a graduate student in mechanical engineering, and Eric Dietz, director of Purdue Homeland Security Institute and professor of computer and information technology, to redesign an N95 mask’s headband and the way it is attached. The new design can help overcome limitations that cause masks to become useless when their elastic headbands deteriorate during long-term storage.
Purdue’s Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence has selected a project by Dominic Kao, Dawn Laux and Ida Ngambeki for the 2020 Research Project Grant for Assistant Professors.
Byung-Cheol “BC” Min and his colleagues are developing an electronic glove (e-glove) that fits over an artificial hand to enhance the prosthetic’s capabilities while appearing more realistic.
Interdisciplinary research in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute uses a socio-technical approach to pursue one goal from many angles and create significant impact on global grand challenges. A unique, collaborative research style within Purdue Polytechnic is on the rise, with Research Impact Areas leading the way.
Jim Lerums and Katherine Reichart developed the Indiana Cybersecurity Scorecard, a tool for non-experts to confidently self-assess the state of their organization’s cyberinfrastructure.
Fahad Salamh, Marcus Rogers and Umit Karabiyik have developed a cloud forensic model using machine learning to collect digital evidence related to illegal activities on cloud storage applications like Dropbox and Google Drive.
John Mott, associate professor in aviation technology, and his research team have developed an antenna system aimed at enabling network connectivity in rural areas.
A new, patented technique being developed by Yingjie “Victor” Chen and his research team could make visualization of big spatial data sets easier and more concise.
Bill Hutzel, professor of mechanical engineering, and undergraduate Danielle LeClerc are continuing the School of Engineering Technology’s years-long Biowall research in clean, sustainable indoor air. LeClerc is incorporating data from NASA to determine which plants have the best air-cleaning performance.
