Real-time Archiving of Spontaneous Events (Use-Case: Hurricane Sandy)
This presentation describes the goals and purpose of the Crisis, Tragedy and Recovery network (CTRnet) and how CTRnet's efforts can be applied to real-life disasters such as Hurricane Sandy.
A framework for evaluating epidemic forecasts
Abstract Background Over the past few decades, numerous forecasting methods have been proposed in the field of epidemic forecasting. Such methods can be classified into different ...
User-elicited dual-hand interactions for manipulating 3D objects in virtual reality environments
Abstract Virtual reality technologies (VR) have advanced rapidly in the last few years. Prime examples include the Oculus RIFT and HTC Vive that are both head-worn/mounted displays (HMDs). VR HMDs enable a ...
A purge and trap integrated microGC platform for chemical identification in aqueous samples
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-05-19)
The majority of current micro-scale gas chromatography (_GC) systems focus on air sampling to detect volatile organic compounds (VOCs). However, purging the VOCs from a water sample using microsystems is an unchartered ...
Tripping Elicits Earlier and Larger Deviations in Linear Head Acceleration Compared to Slipping
Slipping and tripping contribute to a large number of falls and fall-related injuries. While the vestibular system is known to contribute to balance and fall prevention, it is unclear whether it contributes to detecting ...
Flow Measurements in a Blood-Perfused Collagen Vessel Using X-Ray Micro-Particle Image Velocimetry
Blood-perfused tissue models are joining the emerging field of tumor engineering because they provide new avenues for modulation of the tumor microenvironment and preclinical evaluation of the therapeutic potential of new ...
DNA-graphene interactions during translocation through nanogaps
We study how double-stranded DNA translocates through graphene nanogaps. Nanogaps are fabricated with a novel capillary-force induced graphene nanogap formation technique. DNA translocation signatures for nanogaps are ...
