From researching how to make ceramics tough enough for aerospace travel to automated learning strategies and developing fibers for windows and eyewear, research by dozens of Missouri University of Science and Technology graduate students was on display last month. On Monday, March 13, Missouri S&T’s office of graduate studies recognized the top presentations during an awards banquet.
The university’s eighth annual Graduate Fellows Research Poster Session was held Feb. 27 in the Havener Center of Missouri S&T to showcase the research efforts of 48 students who are either Missouri S&T Chancellor’s Fellows or Chancellor’s Distinguished Fellows.
The following five students were recognized for their outstanding research:
Faculty judges for the morning presentations were Dr. Bonnie Bachman, professor of economics; Dr. Catherine Johnson, assistant professor of mining and nuclear engineering; Dr. Glenn Morrison, professor of environmental engineering; Dr. Gayla Olbricht, assistant professor of mathematics and statistics; Dr. Daniel Reardon, assistant professor of English and technical communication; and Dr. Chaman Sabharwal, professor of computer science.
Faculty judges for the afternoon presentations were Dr. Akim Adekpedjou, associate professor of mathematics and statistics; Dr. Ayodeji Alajo, assistant professor of mining and nuclear engineering; Dr. Douglas Bristow, associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering; Dr. Steven Corns, associate professor of engineering management and systems engineering; Dr. Umit Koylu, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering; and Dr. Maciej Zawodniok, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering.
