FY2021 DARPA YFA: Next generation of wireless power transfer network of Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) using electromechanical beamforming

Description: Research aiming to develop the next generation of wireless power transfer (WPT) network that is scalable, safe, and efficient and can be deployed in a UAS by incorporating waveform engineering, electromechanical beamforming, integrated phased-array antenna, and transmitter (TX)/receiver (RX) co-design. This project aims to reveal the fundamental understanding of the energy sphere formation in a 3D space using UAVs as a case study. Although interests in radiative (far-field) WPT using beamforming has been growing rapidly because of its capability to energize a large number of autonomous devices, most of these works are still in the theoretical phase without any practical implementation. This project aims to implement a robust beamforming network using a bottom-up approach (from the antenna to the inter-connected network) that is highly important for addressing the challenges associated with a dynamically changing environment.

Cataloging for Makerspaces

Description: Poster on cataloging items for makerspaces. Makerspace items may be difficult for library users to find if they are not fully cataloged. Cataloging not only facilitates discovery but also provides information needed to track usage, create programming, generate recommendations, and support collection development. Attend this poster presentation for an overview of descriptive and subject cataloging for makerspace items. It was presented at the Cross Timbers Library Collaborative (CTCL) 2021 conference held virtually on July 23, 2021.

Collaborative Research: SaTC: CORE: Small: Privacy protection of Vehicles location in Spatial Crowdsourcing under realistic adversarial models

Description: Research to develop new location privacy protection techniques by considering vehicles’ mobility features in the road network, and consequently lead to a more secure and trustworthy computing environment in location-based services (LBSs). As privacy concerns are still among the main obstacles for mobile users to participate in many advanced LBSs, this project is poised to contribute to the wider adoption of LBSs for many applications (e.g. navigation systems and location-based recommendation systems). The project will also provide a set of diverse and interesting topics for undergraduate and graduate students and outreach activities for the community.

Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolases and Chemical Communication in Plants

Description: Research seeking to understand how an evolutionarily-conserved group of plant enzymes utilizes chemical signals to regulate growth and to influence their microbial environment. Specific research aims include the discovery of new enzymes and their substrate molecules that act as communication signals. Broader applications of this research may offer new strategies to enhance agricultural outputs by manipulating plant-microbe interactions in crop and soil systems.
