ISE News and Events

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.
IEEE is the world's largest association of technical professionals. It seeks to advance the fields of engineering, computer science and information technology, physical science, biological and medical sciences, mathematics, and allied disciplines, both technically and educationally. Long composed of engineers and scientists, IEEE's membership also includes allied professionals such as computer scientists, software developers, information technology professionals, physicists, and medical doctors.

Suvranu De, the J. Erik Jonsson ’22 Distinguished Professor of Engineering and head of the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering (MANE) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has been selected to receive the 2022 ASME Edwin F. Church Medal.
People with type 2 diabetes who contract COVID-19 are nearly 50% more likely to wind up in intensive care if they have poorly managed their blood sugar levels over the long-term than those with better long-term glycemic control, according to a study using anonymized health care data.
Researchers have developed a new technique for revealing defects in nanostructured vanadium oxide, a widely used transition metal with many potential applications including electrochemical anodes, optical applications, and supercapacitors.
Materials and mechanical scientists are using machine learning to rapidly vet combinations of elements that could be used in next-generation environmental barrier coatings needed to protect vehicles traveling in the extreme conditions of aerospace and space environments. The project, led by researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, is supported by the National Science Foundation.
Faculty from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute served as experts in an exchange of information about developments in the field of sustainable energy, large-scale environmental change, and innovative and interdisciplinary research into energy storage and smart systems in the built environment on a recent visit by two members of the U.S. Congress.
