Kummer Innovation & Entrepreneurship Doctoral Fellow Research Presentations

Thursday, April 7 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Havener Center, Carver/Turner
1346 N. Bishop Ave., Rolla, MO 65401

Please join us for the Kummer Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) Doctoral Fellow research presentation panel on Thursday, April 7 from 4:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. in the Carver/Turner rooms of the Havener Center. The Kummer Institute for Student Success, Research, and Economic Development’s Kummer Student Programs will host students, staff, faculty, and visiting alumni on academies as four Kummer I&E Doctoral Fellows provide a brief overview of their research followed by a Q&A with the audience. Light refreshments will be served.

The presentations will feature the following research concentrations:

  • Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC) - Creating an environment in which humans and robots team up to work side by side in close proximity. Humans and robots share the same workspace, resources, and tasks in such a collaborative setup. This is to integrate the best of two worlds: strength, endurance, repeatability, and accuracy of the robots with the intuition, flexibility, and versatile problem solving and sensory skills of humans. (Niloofar Zendehdel, Mechanical Engineering)
  • On Magic Squares - Magic squares are a highly studied number theoretic subject about which many unanswered questions remain. Determining more about these could lead to innovations in areas like actuarial work and equity trading. (Nicholas Fleece, Mathematics)
  • Sedimentology, Stratigraphic Variability of Shale, and Controlling Factors and Processes – Shale is the most abundant sedimentary rock on earth. As an important source of several earth resources, understanding the processes and conditions associated with shale formation is invaluable. (Chukwuma Mgbenu, Geology and Geophysics)
  • Automated Diagnosis, Control and Prognosis of Aircraft Data Transmission Lines – Diagnosis of aircraft transmission lines will be based on wave impedance change caused by discontinuity on the transmission lines. Environmental factors on aircraft deteriorate condition of the transmission lines. Therefore, on time localization of faults and prognosis of the behavior of transmission lines are crucial. In this regard, in the first stage of the research, analysis of the effects of aircraft environment into data transmission and its prognosis will be executed. (Anvar Valiev, Aerospace Engineering)
