Dr. Michel Kinsy has joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University as an associate professor. With expertise in cybersecurity and a focus on engineering and computational problems, he'll also serve as associate director of the Texas A&M Cybersecurity Center.

Industrial Robots At The Automatic Car Manufacturing Factory Assembly Line.

Researchers from Texas A&M Engineering and Los Alamos National Laboratory are improving magnesium alloys’ usability, which could mean stronger, lighter vehicles that could significantly reduce fuel consumption and carbon footprints, and enhance their maneuverability.

Graphic representation of droplets

Dr. Jacob McFarland is leading a project to understand how tiny droplets behave when subjected to high pressure and temperatures, which could contribute to the development of more efficient engines for propulsion and energy production applications.

Stylized graphic showing columns of neurons on a circuit board.

While digital technology is good at solving certain problems, it often struggles with tasks that the human brain excels at. In a new study, scientists have leveraged brain-inspired connectivity between artificial neurons to solve a real-world problem of identifying mutations of a new viral species.

Students in a lab working on Advanced Nuclear Energy for Enriched Life pellets.

A team from Texas A&M University has established a collaboration to explore the potential of an innovative new type of thorium-based nuclear fuel called Advanced Nuclear Energy for Enriched Life, which addresses issues including cost, safety, proliferation and waste management.

Innovation and science come together on a blue computer screen

Texas A&M University researchers, led by Dr. Ali Mostafavi, have developed a powerful deep-learning computational model that uses artificial intelligence and existing big data related to population activities and mobility to help predict the future spread of COVID-19 cases at a county level.

A picture of electric bushings on a power transformer.

Texas A&M University researchers have shown that if electrical transformer bushing systems are reinforced with steel, they are more resistant to damage caused by earthquakes. As a result, the cost of repairs and the general economic losses from power outages can be curbed.
