My research group is looking for a motivated undergraduate student to assist in the field data collection of remote sensing for civil infrastructure. This includes collecting both lidar scanning and unmanned aerial system data of roadways, bridges, buildings, etc. Work would involve both field collection and data processing. Date and hours are flexible, please inquire by email.
This position requires a student with knowledge of materials and chemical science relevant to polymeric materials and interfaces. The student will work on a multidisciplinary project and will lead the material processing and characterization of the synthesized polymers. The objective is to understand how organometallic polymers, specifically polysiloxanes, interact with bacteria and how this process can be utilized for underwater antibacterial effect. For further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Tiffany Messer is seeking one to two undergraduate research assistants to assist graduate students investigating fate and transport of pesticides in rivers. The Messer research team focuses on identifying, tracing, and treating contaminants of emerging concern and nutrients in highly disturbed ecosystems through innovative sensor technologies for water quality monitoring and ecosystem based Best Management Practices.
The student will learn how to build models and applications in the COMSOL multiphysics modeling software. The student will investigate and develop COMSOL applications related to architectural engineering topics that may be used for educational and instructional purposes. The initial focus of the project will be to develop applications related to architectural acoustics and building noise control. The student will also have the opportunity to develop applications related to other areas of architectural engineering (AE) and to explore live linkages to Revit for geometry.
We will develop and validate proof-of-concept peritoneal and thoracic microbubble oxygenation as a mitigation strategy for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). Previous studies have demonstrated this technology has potential to augment oxygenation via bypass of damaged lung parenchyma.
Profs. Lisong Xu and Sebastian Elbaum are looking for an undergraduate student to participate in an interesting and cutting-edge NSF research project on automated testing and verification of network protocols. For example, if you have an Android smartphone, we have just found several bugs in the TCP protocol of Android, which is the protocol used for browsing web-pages and sending/receiving emails .
The student will work with the professors and other students in the project starting from Spring or Summer 2018, and may continue to the fall semester.
The goal of the research is to experimentally investigate coalescence of liquid drops (in air or immiscible liquid) in limited confinements such as Hele-Shaw cells (two-dimensional confinement). Upon touching each other, drops coalesce or merge because interfacial surface tension tries to minimize surface area between liquid and gas phases. We expect that such coalescing behaviors will be affected by how drops are confined and by surface wettability of confining surfaces.
