Innovation Showcase celebrates our commitment to innovation and the amazing work produced by students and faculty.

Many of the projects on display began with an industry request for help to solve a problem. The problems were then matched with students, who worked in teams with faculty mentors to come up with tangible solutions. It is use-inspired research and design that solves industry issues while giving industry leaders an up-close-and personal look at students, who they often go on to hire.

Meet the next generation of problem solvers. View the Innovation Showcase photo gallery on Flickr.

Using math to combat malicious attacks on complex communication and power networks
Oliver Kosut, assistant professor of electrical engineering, investigates new techniques to bolster the resilience of communication networks in the presence of potentially damaging attacks, with an eye toward the fundamental trade-offs between security and performance. He also will develop an education and outreach program for students of all ages about security vulnerability and protection for networked systems.

Unlocking the mystery of the human brain with modern geometry-based imaging computation
Working with world-class neurologists, physicians and psychologists, Yalin Wang, an assistant professor of computer science and engineering, is developing modern geometry-based software to analyze brain imaging to find the specific brain morphometry change patterns which may discriminate between Alzheimer’s disease development and normal aging. This work may help provide computational software to monitor and understand the structural changes related to Alzheimer’s disease.

QESST Scholar wins NSF Perfect Pitch Competition
Pablo Guimerá Coll, a doctoral student in materials science and engineering, brought home a first place win — and $5,000 cash prize — in the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers’ Perfect Pitch Competition. Coll, a scholar in the Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies (QESST) NSF-DOE Engineering Research Center, presented on “Sound Assisted Low Temperature Wafering for Silicon Modules.” Contestants were judged on such things as a compelling statement of the problem and the broader impact of the technology.

Research brings cancer cell invasion studies into 3D micro-engineered model
Mehdi Nikkhah, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering, is taking a really close look at how cancer cells begin to transform and invade the surrounding healthy tissues. Using a novel microscale 3D platform, he will be able to study how a single cancer cell responds to biophysical and biochemical signals within the surrounding connective tissue. Read on Full Circle

ASU engineer nets NASA early career award for solar cell research
Yuji Zhao, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, is working on new technology for high temperature solar cells to be used in space, where power generation is a critical issue. His research is supported by a prestigious Early Career Faculty Space Tech Research Grant awarded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Read on Full Circle
