In fall 2018, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering launched a new Undergraduate Research Fellowship program. Here are the projects and partnerships that emerged from those fellowships.
The CAREER Award is one of the “most prestigious awards in support of the early career-development activities of those teacher-scholars who most effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their organization,” according to NSF.
Mike Johnson, professor and chair in the University of Kentucky Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, led the team, which worked on the project over the summer.
Three recent NASA EPSCoR proposals have been selected for $100,000 awards. All of these projects are managed under the NASA Kentucky programs.
The new positions are part of the UK College of Engineering's initiative to hire 20 new faculty members in the coming year.
In recent years, Ionel’s and Cramer’s research on related topics at UK has been funded by NASA, ONR, and directly by leading industrial companies.
The funding will support a study using modified auditory feedback to elicit involuntary learning in patients with non-progressive dysarthria, a type of speech impairment associated with stroke and traumatic brain injury survivors.
The project presents a collaborative research and education effort in graph signal processing.
The $270,000 grant is courtesy of NASA’s Flight Opportunities program which supports NASA’s future exploration and science missions.
An LED light including its internal controller that spent approximately nine years aboard the International Space Station is being studied for negative effects caused by space’s radiation levels.
