Purdue Polytechnic’s Paul Asunda received funding for his proposal, “Leading Academic Transformation: Enhancing Stem Instructional Methods," from the Embassy of the United States of America in Kazakhstan.
An interdisciplinary team of Purdue Polytechnic researchers received National Science Foundation (NSF) funding to study how teams of humans and robots will work together at construction sites. The team hopes the NSF grant will serve as the foundation for years of collaborative research to improve the efficiency and scalability of human-robot teams in constrained and complex construction workplaces.
An effort to facilitate collaboration and research related to cyberinfrastructure (CI) has been awarded $7.5 million by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The effort was conceived by a national team of researchers including Purdue Polytechnic’s Paul Parsons.
Purdue Polytechnic’s Brittany Newell and Jose Garcia-Bravo and their colleagues created a novel wet-mixing method that allows for embedding sensors within the structure of 3D-printed parts. Their patent-pending method will aid industry in manufacturing functional parts.
Purdue Polytechnic’s Umit Karabiyik is researching how ordinary citizens willingly share data with law enforcement, including photos, videos, text messages, and other data from cell phones — and how to collect this data in a way that maintains personal privacy and security.
Purdue Polytechnic faculty in the “Realizing the Digital Enterprise” research impact area are working to pair technological capability and social responsibility, creating successful cyber–physical experiences.
Gozdem Kilaz, associate professor of engineering technology, received Purdue Polytechnic’s Outstanding Faculty in Discovery Award. Much of Kilaz’ research has focused on alternative liquid transportation fuels, including development, testing and approval of biofuels.
Sunghwan Lee, assistant professor of engineering technology, Michael Clevenger, engineering technology graduate student, Hyeonghun Kim, postdoctoral research assistant, and colleagues at the Korea Research Institute of Standard and Science identified a better way to directly fabricate sensors onto ready-made wearable items, such as clothing, gloves, or even disposable masks that can successfully extract bioinformation in real time, with remarkable precision. The research represents an advancement in the development of versatile healthcare devices printed directly onto ready-made clothing that can be worn comfortably by the patient, which ultimately will make these devices more effective.
Since 2018, Purdue Polytechnic faculty have been collaborating to explore the intersection between learning and work within the context of technology. Through new approaches to education and workforce training and development, their ongoing “Future Work and Learning” research aims to empower employees to take charge of their careers and become active, successful professionals and members of society.
Purdue Polytechnic’s Vetria Byrd and a multidisciplinary research team received a five-year $15 million grant from the National Science Foundation to establish I-GUIDE, a new institute for geospatial data-driven scientific research.
