Womxn in STEM

I am very passionate about supporting minorities and #WomenInStem. Here, you can see one of my favorite projects I have completed in my career. Supporting women in STEM, in my internship in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University, I reached out to several students in the department. I then had … Continue reading Womxn in STEM

ECpE receives $1 million DOE grant for elevating distributed wind power with new optimization and control algorithms

ECpE receives $1 million DOE grant for elevating distributed wind power with new optimization and control algorithms All across Iowa, rural communities reside. Driving between those communities, plots of land with hundreds of giant wind turbines are commonly seen from car windows. These wind turbines provide power to transmission systems and spread around the country, … Continue reading ECpE receives $1 million DOE grant for elevating distributed wind power with new optimization and control algorithms

Cyclone engineers work to quicken the loop of scientific discovery

In science, there is always more to be learned. Scientists are often making new discoveries. But what would it be like if the time it took to discover these things was reduced by half? Last December, engineers at Iowa State University received an award for a proposal furthering science through artificial intelligence (AI) granted from the Defense Advanced Research Projects … Continue reading Cyclone engineers work to quicken the loop of scientific discovery

ECpE professors receive $400,000 grant for nanotexturing research

In the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE) at Iowa State University, engineers create devices that make huge impacts on people’s lives, but sometimes the devices themselves are quite small. Rana Biswas, ECpE and physics adjunct professor, and Jaeyoun Kim, ECpE associate professor, recently received a $400,000, three year National Science Foundation (NSF) grant toward research for creating a miniscule, nanoscale … Continue reading ECpE professors receive $400,000 grant for nanotexturing research

ECpE grad student wins award for paper device measuring nitrite, glucose and protein

An imbalance of certain chemicals in bodies can lead to a growth of diseases and illnesses. However, right now measuring the chemical levels of bodies is typically only possible with a trip to the doctor’s office. But now, with the work of Taejoon Kong, a graduate student at Iowa State University, it may soon be possible … Continue reading ECpE grad student wins award for paper device measuring nitrite, glucose and protein
