A team of researchers from Texas A&M University and The University of Texas at Austin is taking a deeper look into post-Harvey Houston to find new ways to combat construction-related labor exploitation and trafficking.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and the Texas A&M University Division of Research hosted a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Proposal Writing Workshop, featuring Dr. George Hazelrigg, a former NSF program officer who has been speaking at similar workshops for more than 15 years.
Dr. Daniel A. Jiménez, professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been appointed the interim chair of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Architecture (TCCA).
In a collaborative study involving Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE), a unique severe plastic deformation (SPD) process, researchers Dr. Ibrahim Karaman from Texas A&M University and Drs. Don Susan and Andrew Kustas of Sandia National Laboratories were able to improve the mechanical properties of magnetic alloys without changing their magnetic properties through microstructural refinement. This process has proven to be troublesome in the past.
Dr. Maria Koliou, an assistant professor in the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been awarded a RAPID grant from the National Science Foundation to investigate the seismic resilience of wood frame building systems and explore the efficiency of various seismic retrofit/repair solutions in enhancing urban community resilience.
Tokunbo “TJ” Falohun, a graduate student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University, recently was granted a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, a prestigious award given to graduate students.
When biomedical researchers have a technology they believe can help patients, they want to get it into the clinic as soon as possible. However, some therapies that look promising in the lab are challenging to “scale up” and produce in sufficient quantities to test in a larger group, or eventually make broadly available to patients.
During the second annual "Aggies Celebrate Teaching! – Recognizing Transformational Learning" reception, three faculty members from the Texas A&M University College of Engineering were honored by the Center for Teaching Excellence at Texas A&M. This year’s award reception was part of the inaugural Texas A&M University Transformational Teaching and Learning Conference.
The paper "Comparing Visual, Textual and Multimodal Features for Detecting Sign Language in Video Sharing Sites," by Caio Monteiro, Dr. Frank Shipman, and Dr. Ricardo Gutierrez-Osuna from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University won the Best Paper Award at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Multimedia Information Processing and Retrieval.
