Dr. Narasimha Reddy recently received a National Science Foundation grant to make digital manufacturing more secure. This grant will allow Reddy to create a collaborative space for research in cybersecurity with educators and scientists across the country.

A team of researchers received a National Science Foundation grant, in collaboration with the National Science and Technology Council of Taiwan, to develop a framework for optimized data communication that combines electronic and photonic systems.

Dr. Rodney Bowersox is the newly appointed deputy director for the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and senior associate dean for research for the Texas A&M University College of Engineering. His new leadership role begins Aug. 8, 2023.

Texas A&M University will lead a project to potentially revolutionize medication for pediatric patients with 3D-printed customized tablets tailored to unique needs, breaking free from the constraints of mass production.

The American Chemical Society elected Dr. Jaime Grunlan among its 2023 class of Fellows, joining fewer than 1,500 members ever to receive the recognition.

Texas A&M University professor Dr. Shuiwang Ji recently received a National Science Foundation grant to develop an artificial intelligence (AI) method to make predictions from geometric graphs. Ji aims to inspire others to contribute to the burgeoning field of AI for science.

Dr. Zixiang Xiong received a National Science Foundation grant to gain a fundamental understanding of learned source coding — or data compression that uses machine learning — and to create parameters for the unprecedented tools now available through artificial intelligence.

A Texas A&M University engineering scientist was awarded a National Science Foundation grant to develop a new method of using hardware to detect malicious software on future computers.

Dr. Le Xie and his research collaborators received the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Power and Energy Society Technical Committee Prize Paper Award for their paper, which introduces a novel approach to assessing and providing assurance for microgrid stability.

Dr. Joseph Kwon’s chemical engineering contribution led to him receiving the 2023 James M. Lee Memorial Award.

Fred and Cindy Balda established the Cindy ’82 and Fred Balda ’82 Endowed Peer Mentor Scholarship to support first-generation Aggie engineering students by lessening the financial burden and giving them an opportunity to experience a life-changing Aggie education.

Researchers from five academic institutions, including Texas A&M University, investigated how ear speaker vibrations and motion sensor data on newer smartphones could compromise caller information security.

A recent surprise observation of metal healing itself during fracture experiments at Sandia National Laboratories has provided the first experimental evidence of a theory proposed a decade ago by Texas A&M University researcher Dr. Michael Demkowicz.

The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) partnered with Texas A&M University to establish the ABS Laboratory for Ocean Innovation and Ocean Engineering Department Head Chair. The collaboration aims to enhance the education of ocean engineering students, foster research opportunities, and shape the industry’s future. The partnership represents a significant step toward a more sustainable marine industry.

Internships boost a student’s educational and professional career. Five students in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering said the skills they developed and their experiences at their internships will help them succeed in their future careers.

An interdisciplinary team of researchers demonstrated that coral can be preserved through a new technique called isochoric vitrification. This process takes the selected coral fragments through the stages of cryopreservation and subsequent revival.

Olivia Mills is a senior majoring in architectural engineering in the Department of Multidisciplinary Engineering. During her internship abroad in Ireland, she found the country's rich architectural history enhanced the technical knowledge of her degree.

In honor of their parents’ support, Denise ’76 and Ken Meyer ’75 established the Imogene and Carl Lindley and Fay and Robert Meyer CVEN Excellence Endowment to support first-generation students.

Researchers are just beginning to track the long-term health of COVID-19 survivors. To correctly diagnose and treat patients with long COVID-19, Dr. Tianbao Yang has received a $3.7 million grant to develop self-supervised deep learning technologies that recognize subtypes of post-COVID lung progression phenotypes.

Subsea engineering graduate student Mohammed Shafi from the Department of Multidisciplinary Engineering was a member of the Texas A&M University team that took first place in a recent oil and gas competition of student designs.

Dr. Behbood Ben Zoghi will lead as interim department head of the Department of Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution at Texas A&M University. He is the Victor H. Thompson Professor in the department and a professor in the multidisciplinary engineering department.

Sharon Rich joined the Department of Multidisciplinary Engineering this spring semester as a professor of practice. She brings over 30 years of engineering experience to her role as an instructor in the graduate subsea engineering program.
