Ana Gabriela Duque is currently a junior Industrial & Management Engineer working on a research project along side Dr. Jennifer Pazour and Dr. Sergio Pequito called Toward Green Fashion Design: A Systems Engineer’s Perspective.

Congratulations to PhD student Orlando Rodrigues Romero for being selected as one of the inaugural IBM/RPI AI Horizons Scholars.  Orlando was one of the 11 selected out of 66 who applied.

During the fellowship, Orlando seeks to use dynamical and control systems tools to analyze and design novel and efficient algorithms capable of performing unsupervised classification under non-stationary data sources.

Congratulations to PhD student Kaan Unnu in being selected to receive the Storage Manufacturers Association Honor Scholarship for the 2019/2020 academic year from the Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc.

The Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc. (MHEFI) is an independent charitable organization that was established in 1976.

Jennifer Pazour has been invited to give the Distinguished Researcher Presentation at the World Class Supply Chain Summit this May 2019 in Milton, Ontario.  She was identified by the Co-Chair because of her impressive research and speaking credentials, evidenced by Jen’s Rensselaer and Google Scholar profiles, and her seminar presentations.

TROY, N.Y. —When the Shewanella oneidensis bacterium “breathes” in certain metal and sulfur compounds anaerobically, the way an aerobic organism would process oxygen, it produces materials that could be used to enhance electronics, electrochemical energy storage, and drug-delivery devices.
In a test of antiviral effectiveness against the virus that causes COVID-19, an extract from edible seaweeds substantially outperformed remdesivir, the current standard antiviral used to combat the disease.
TROY, N.Y. — With hurricane season already underway and projected to be active, communities throughout the U.S. are trying to balance disaster preparation amid an unprecedented public health crisis. While significant attention is rightly being given to COVID-19, leaders – especially those in communities along the coast – must plan for the possibility of dual disasters.
A common drug, already approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), may also be a powerful tool in fighting COVID-19, according to research published this week in Antiviral Research.
TROY, N.Y. - The U.S. Department of Energy recently awarded $65 million in grants to support research that will advance safe, reliable, and clean nuclear energy. Among those projects are two led by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, which received a combined total of $1.2 million.
