Zhu YE Siu-Tung Yau
Dr. Ye Zhu and Dr. Siu-Tung Yau were awarded technology commercialization funding by the TeCK Fund. The TeCK Fund is managed by CSU and partner Kent State University (KSU), and provides faculty and startup companies with up to $100,000 to assist with commercialization activities. Dr. Siu-Tung Yau received funding to move his invention, A Culture-Free Platform for Rapid Diagnosis of Infections, toward market readiness. The technology has been patented and will be used to provide hospital labs with a new platform for rapidly diagnosing bloodstream infections and urinary tract infections. Dr. Ye Zhu received funding to commercially develop his technology, Graphic GameBased User Authentication Schemes for Mobile Devices. Dr. Zhu’s technology has been funded by the NSF and has patents pending.

Dr. Lili Dong organized an IEEE CSS seminar on April 5, 2018. It was a joint event between IEEE Control Systems Society and IEEE HKN, Epsilon Alpha Chapter. There were 52 attendees including CSU faculty and students, the students from Case Western Reserve University, and the engineers from local industry. Dr. Robert Veillette from the University of Akron gave a presentation entitled as "Insulation Fault Detection in Buried Power Cables: A Feedback Control Application". The event successfully promotes the networking between academic researchers and industrial practitioners, and enhances students' learning beyond the classroom.

Congratulations to Donald Ebeigbe for receiving the CSU Graduate Student Research Award

Doctoral candidate Donald Ebeigbe has received a $4,000 award from the Office of Research for his project “Control of Rigid Robots with Large Uncertainties.” Donald’s research objective is to improve the state-of-the-art in robot control theory, especially in cases when the robot model cannot be derived. His new control development could enhance the control of robots by guaranteeing desired performance over a range of system uncertainties or disturbances. Donald’s award will provide him with funds for salary, conference travel, and equipment.

Congratulations to Saman Khademi for receiving the CSU Graduate Student Research Award

Doctoral candidate Saman Khademi has received a $4,000 award from the Office of Research for his project “Environmentally Aware User Intent Recognition of Amputees with Lower-Limb Prostheses Using Deep Learning.” Seamless user-prosthesis interaction is an important challenge in above-knee powered prostheses. Saman’s research objective is to develop deep learning approaches that can fuse non-invasive user-aware and environmentally aware sensors. Saman’s research could enable powered prosthesis function to approach the robustness, safety, and performance levels of the natural human leg. Saman’s award will provide him with funds for salary, conference travel, and equipment.
