Improving Student Learning While Decreasing Bias in Teaching Through Simulation

Description: Research on the simEquity project which will implement a scalable model for developing equitable, culturally responsive teaching practices through simSchool, a simulated teaching environment. The project will identify best practices to help teachers recognize and mitigate implicit biases that often impact student success. The project team will iteratively develop and test an AI-driven set of bias reduction tools that can be added to existing simulation instruction modules.

Modulating 3D Cellular Connectivity Via Spatially-Controlled Programmable Bonding

Description: This project seeks to demonstrate proof-of-concept for technology that allows one to systematically place cells on substrates to create complex 3D assemblies with precise control over individual cellular interactions. The technology generated within this proposal will open new avenues for studying multicellular communication pathways, stem cell differentiation, and understanding developmental processes. Spatially-defined cell-cell communication plays a critical role in numerous disease and developmental processes that include osteoarthritic degeneration, cancer metastasis, and organ regeneration.

Process and Materials Development for Additive Manufacturing (AM) of Tungsten-Based Alloys with Superior High Temperature Performance and Good Room Temperature Ductility

Description: Research on CALPHAD simulations will be conducted to optimize the chemical composition of tungsten based alloys towards 3D printability while boosting mechanical performance through solid solution and dispersion strengthening. This will followed by powder prototyping to validate the simulation results experimentally and to finalize the chemical composition of interest. Process parameter optimization and post-process heat treatment design will help to achieve optimal low-to-high temperature mechanical properties. Mechanical testing and microstructural characterization will be performed to establish process-microstructure-property relationships.

School Librarians Facilitating the Success of English Language Learners

Description: Grant for the University of North Texas Departments of Information Science, Learning Technologies, and Linguistics, in partnership with the International Association of School Librarians, to hold a forum about building the capacity of school librarians to provide services for English language learners (ELLs). The forum will convene contributors from the school library community and ELL stakeholders, such as linguists, ELL community members, public librarians, educational technologists, teachers, and school administrators to explore strategies and best practices for teaching ELLs.

Development of Novel Approaches to Earth-abundant Methane Catalysis

Description: Research on catalytic cycles for C–H activation and functionalization of light alkanes based on the CMD (concerted metalation deprotonation) mechanism will be modeled for Earth-abundant metal dicarboxylates and related complexes. The impact of inner and outer coordination sphere effects upon catalytic cycles for light alkane functionalization will be assessed using computational chemistry techniques. The aforementioned studies will be leveraged to identify promising, synthetically feasible lead catalysts for experimental collaborators.

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.
