CECS Virtual Faculty Research Talks

Friday, June 24, 2022 noon to 1 p.m.

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 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 June 24, 2022 speaker lineup:

  • Wei Zhang, Ph.D., Department of Computer Science: "Multi-Omics Data Integration to Improve Type-1 Diabetes Outcome Prediction"
  • Jiannan "Nick" Chen, Ph.D., Department of Civil, Environmental and Construction Engineering: "The Environmental-Economic Assessments of the Solid and Hazardous Waste Management"
  • Robert Steward, Ph.D., Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering: "Extracellular Matrix Composition Alters Cellular Biomechanical Forces"
