Friday, August 7, 2020 noon to 1 p.m.

New in 2020! The UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science's Zoom-cast series is live-streamed every Friday, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., offering four 10-minute talks by CECS faculty and a live-chat Q&A. 

Targeted to faculty, scientists and potential industry and government partners, all are invited to Zoom-in and hear presentations by UCF’s engineering and computer science faculty who explain their cutting-edge, pioneering research endeavors in quick, 10-minute snapshots. 

These talks provide an opportunity to get to know — and collaborate with — our faculty who are advancing innovations in all areas of engineering and computer science, including smart city technology, aerospace, energy, modeling and simulation, medicine, advanced materials, cyber security, and more. Each faculty presenter will narrate as they share illustrative slides.

Moderated by Subith Vasu, Ph.D., UCF Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, viewers can submit questions in real-time and express interest in collaborating. 

The August 7, 2020 faculty presenter lineup:

  • Haofei Yu., Ph.D., Dept. of Civil, Environmental and Construction Engineering: "The Smart and Trustworthy AIR Quality Network"
  • Kenle Chen, Ph.D., Dept. Electrical and Computer Engineering: "Towards Ultimate Energy and Spectral Efficiency of Next-Generation Wireless Radio Systems"
  • Samik Battycharya, Ph.D., Dept. of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering: "Exploring Fluid Physics Across Multiple Length Scales Through Advanced Optical Diagnostics"
  • Yan Solihin., Ph.D., Dept. of Computer Science: "Secure and Private Computing in the Cloud"
