Capacity Building: Creating and Sustaining a Pathway for Engineering Majors to Become STEM Teachers

Description: Data management plan for the grant, "Capacity Building: Creating and Sustaining a Pathway for Engineering Majors to Become STEM Teachers." The project aims to serve a national need for building pathways for engineering students to become grade 6-12 STEM teachers in high-need schools. The project will develop a framework for recruitment, retention, and reshaping of graduate teacher certification specifically for engineering students to become STEM teachers. The effort is a collaboration between the College of Engineering and the College of Education at the University of North Texas, a Hispanic Serving Institution.

Collaborative Research: Place Attachment in Mitigation and Recovery: A Mixed Methods Study of Residential Adjustment Following Wildfires

Description: Data management plan for the grant, "Collaborative Research: Place Attachment in Mitigation and Recovery: A Mixed Methods Study of Residential Adjustment Following Wildfires." This study focuses on understanding how place attachment influences the decisions people make after disasters, specifically residential decisions about where they live and whether they invest in measures that reduce their risk to future disasters. Using three California counties as study sites, and building on a pilot study in these same, wildfire-affected communities, the research team uses photovoice method and phenomenological analyses to develop a deep, contextually grounded understanding of the role of place attachment in residential decisions.

Collaborative Research: Using Uncertainty Quantification and Validated Computational Models to Analyze Pumping Performance of Valveless, Tubular Hearts

Description: Data management plan for the research grant, "Collaborative Research: Using Uncertainty Quantification and Validated Computational Models to Analyze Pumping Performance of Valveless, Tubular Hearts." This project will develop a computational model of the essential features of the circulatory system: the electrical activity of the heart, muscle contractions of the tube walls, and the fluid-structure interactions of the heart walls and blood within. This computational framework aims to be faithful to that of a real, model animal (tunicate, or sea squirt). The model will then be analyzed with mathematical tools to determine the physical limits of the pumping system. Results of this project will improve the understanding of human heart development at the earliest stages. Also, it will point to how the large, multi-chambered hearts of vertebrates could have evolved from smaller structures.

RINGS: Mobility-driven Spectrum-Agile Resilient mmWave Communication Links for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Traffic Management in the Sky

Description: Data management plan for the grant "RINGS: Mobility-driven Spectrum-Agile Resilient mmWave Communication Links for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Traffic Management in the Sky." As the unmanned aviation industry moves towards Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) services, air taxis and air ambulances are expected to become a reality in near future. Handling such a high volume of unmanned air traffic requires innovative solutions for enhanced situational awareness in the airspace. The US Federal Aviation Federal Aviation Administration envisions air tracks specifically reserved for AAM vehicles at altitudes ranging from 500 ft to 2000 ft. Air tracks cross one another at intersections and vehicles may need to share the airspace with other manned and unmanned aerial vehicles. This requires coordination among the vehicles especially during close encounters. Such a coordination requires highly reliable communication links which serve as a substitute for traffic signals on the roads. This proposal addresses this key knowledge gap by investigating strategies for establishing reliable and robust Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication links to support AAM services. This project investigates spectrum-agile millimeter wave-based tunable beamforming strategies needed for establishing reliable and robust V2V communications links to support autonomous flight operations in air corridors along with the supporting radio frequency and mixed signal circuits and steerable antennas.

Using uncertainty quantification and machine learning techniques to study the evolution of odor capture

Description: Data management plan for the research grant, "Using uncertainty quantification and machine learning techniques to study the evolution of odor capture." This research proposes the application of uncertainty quantification (UQ) and machine learning (ML) to a CFD model of odor capture to understand the role of hair-array morphology, kinematics, and fluid environment in odor capture. The combination of CFD modeling and UQ&ML techniques can map out the performance space under which these chemosensory hair arrays operate and the relative sensitivity of each parameter of odor capture to construct a global, quantitative understanding of how parameters control odor-capture performance. Furthermore, this analysis can eliminate parameters that have no influence on odor capture, extracting the root principles of odor capture and providing a more efficient way to construct bioinspired devices for chemical detection. This work is of interest to the Army for extracting design principles that can be used for biomimetic and/or bioinspired devices for sensing hazardous chemicals in the environment (e.g. explosives).

REU Site: TaMaLe - Testing and Machine Learning for Context-Driven Systems: Research Experience for Undergraduates

Description: Data management plan for the grant, "REU Site: TaMaLe - Testing and Machine Learning for Context-Driven Systems: Research Experience for Undergraduates." TaMaLe (Testing and Machine Learning for Context-Driven Systems), a renewal Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Site at University of North Texas, engages 10 undergraduate students for 10 weeks with problems in the context-driven system domain. The students explore research problems to improve the reliability and security of context-driven systems. Context-driven systems, such as mobile apps, face constant streams of input from both users and context changes in their environments. Users interact with apps through touch and speech interfaces. These systems also respond to context events that occur in their environments such as changes to network connection, battery level, screen orientation, and more. The combined explosion of possible user events and context event sequences pose new challenges that require cost effective testing solutions. Students and mentors in this REU program work in small teams to develop and empirically evaluate new software testing techniques for context-driven systems using strategies such as reinforcement learning and combinatorial-based techniques.

A World Famous, Yet Unknown, Countertenor: Basile Bolotine of Serge Jaroff’s Don Cossack Choir

Description: This article concerns the artistry and career of Basile Bolotine, 1895-1981, a beloved countertenor soloist in Serge Jaroff's Don Cossack Choir. It was a world-famous a cappella Russian emigre ensemble that toured extensively all over the non-Soviet world for nearly sixty years. Bolotine had a long tenure with them, and through his recorded legacy, his music is still cherished. However, his name has remained largely unknown. This essay introduces him by name to those who have and have not yet experienced his music.
