Four faculty members from Missouri S&T have been selected for the university’s first cohort of ADVANCE Faculty Fellows.Read More »
When predicting the future, some people use a crystal ball or tarot cards. When Missouri S&T geologist Dr. Jonathan Obrist-Farner does it, he uses sediment core samples.Read More »
With close to 100,000 people in the U.S. waiting for a kidney transplant and up to 20 percent of donated kidneys discarded for various reasons, fine-tuning the matchmaking between donated kidneys and transplant centers is a significant challenge. Researchers at Missouri S&T are investigating the ways artificial intelligence (AI) can support the process.Read More »
Dr. Abhijit Gosavi, associate professor of engineering management and systems engineering at Missouri S&T, has been awarded a grant by the National Science Foundation. The grant – titled “Collaborative Research: Continuous-State Reinforcement Learning for Remanufacturing” – provides nearly three years of funding.Read More »
Missouri S&T is one of 11 universities in the Midwest – and the only university in Missouri – to join a new National Science Foundation network designed to move more discoveries from the research labs to the real world. Missouri S&T is part of the NSF’s Great Lakes Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Hub. Led by the […]Read More »
As electronic devices get smaller and faster, computer chips must get thinner to save space and improve performance. Dr. Chenglin Wu, an assistant professor of structural engineering at Missouri S&T, has won a $500,000 CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation for his work in two-dimensional metals – metals that are three atoms thick – for use in computer chips, sensors and coatings.Read More »
At least 17 million residents of the United States lack access to high-speed internet, impeding their ability to use online education, telemedicine and remote work. Missouri S&T is leading a team of experts working to solve the challenge, and now their work is supported by a one-year, $300,000 grant award as part of U.S. Ignite’s Project OVERCOME.Read More »
Behold the common house plant, the front-yard shrub, the rhododendron around back that’s seen better days since the next-door neighbors put their home on the market. They brighten our lawns, increase our property values, even boost our mental and physical health by reducing carbon dioxide levels.
For Dr. Joel Burken, such plants are far more valuable than as mere window dressing. The Curators’ Distinguished Professor and chair of civil, architectural and environmental engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology is an expert in phytoforensics, the process of using plants to study human exposure to pollutants.
Picture teams of smartphone-toting citizen scientists, poised to collect water samples and test for contaminants thanks to a user-friendly app that can crowdsource rapid responders to mobilize the next time a public water system is at risk.
Researchers from Missouri University of Science and Technology and the University of South Florida are tapping National Science Foundation seed money set aside for “potentially transformative research” to advance the technology and hone the social mobilization efforts needed to summon trained, trusted teams of everyday water watchers.
