At tonight’s Science Cafe Cleveland, David Zeng, the Frank H. Neff Professor and chair of the Department of Civil Engineering, will present “Breaking Ice for Wind Energy in Lake Erie.”
Lake Erie has great potential for wind energy. A large wind farm in the lake would have many advantages: away from residential areas, occupying no land, near utility infrastructures and major consumers in Northeast Ohio. However, it also would face a number of challenges such as cost, finance and technology.
A team of Case Western Reserve University engineering students recently traveled to the Kingdom of Lesotho, a small country surrounded entirely by South Africa, to help bring electricity to rural villagers.
The team, led by Daniel Lacks, the C. Benson Branch Professor of Chemical Engineering, installed solar powered electrical systems for three families that had been living without electricity.
The NASA Academy is now accepting applications for its summer research program.
The intensive, 10-week residential program is a rigorous experience that immerses students in a NASA environment where they will learn about the agency from both inside and outside perspectives. Added interaction with NASA collaborators in industry and academia will provide exciting and unforgettable summer experiences to engage students within the NASA family.
Case School of Engineering’s Mehran Mehregany published the first textbook for wireless health, titled Wireless Health: Remaking of Medicine by Pervasive Technologies.
Wireless health enables diagnosis, therapy and monitoring of health-related conditions by tracking relevant biomarkers, managing treatment regimen and monitoring progress—often while the patient goes about her daily life. The frontlines of digital health solutions comprise sensors for nonintrusive measurements of health and disease conditions. Mehregany’s textbook teaches the fundamental and practical knowledge necessary to advance in this rapidly growing field.
Anant Madabhushi, professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, has been named a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
Madabhushi was nominated and elected for his contributions in the development of computational imaging algorithms for automated analysis and interpretation of medical imaging data.
The AIMBE College of Fellows is comprised of the top 2 percent of medical and biological engineers in the country, and fellows are regularly recognized for their contributions in teaching, research and innovation.
