The workshop discussed the most recent novel efforts related to neuroscientific models for the human sense of touch and the combination of haptics and advanced neurorehabilitation robotics technologies.
- Assistant Professor Joseph Chow has joined the Editorial Advisory Board of Transportation Research Part C (2020 Impact Factor: 8.089).
- Assistant Professor Joseph Chow is guest editing a special issue on “Reliability and Resilience of Emerging Mobility Systems” in relation to the recent virtual 8th International Symposium on Transport Network Reliability (INSTR).
- Professor Debra Laefer has welcomed several new students to her research initiatives:
- Doctoral students Kim Hertz and Elmon Toman (Urban Infrastructure Systems) and Ayman Elzibak (Civil Engineering) have joined the Urban Modeling Group.
- William Schell, an Environmental Science teacher at Brooklyn Technical High School, has joined Prof. Laefer’s summer research program investigating low cost means for localized flood modeling around the Newtown Creek.
- High school students CJ Amos, Priscilla Ramchand, Ron Alweiss, and Ayesa Siddeky, as well as Delphine Protopapas from the Weston Research Program at Brooklyn Technical High School have joined professor Laefer’s summer research group through the NYU ARISE program. They are investigating COVID-19 related spatio-temporal patterns and are also joined by visiting scholar Andrew Larkin from the University of Utah.
- Professor Debra Laefer is leading the standards working group for the Disaster Use Case for the development of the Open Geo-Spatial Consortium’s Model for Underground Data Definition and Integration (MUDDI) model, which is designed to make subsurface utility data fully interoperable.
- Professor Debra Laefer was recently named a finalist in the NSF BRITE (Boosting Research Ideas for Transformative and Equitable Advances in Engineering) completion in the Fellow Track. The BRITE Fellow Track is intended to support established tenured or equivalent researchers who have demonstrated impact beyond scientific output to request extended time and freedom to use their intellectual creativity to explore divergent, bold, and ambitious research ideas where the expected scientific outcomes are highly uncertain and, therefore, high-risk.
- Professor Debra Laefer has been named the Chair of the International Association of Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) Bulletin, which produces technical and professional guidance documents and peer-reviewed case studies.
- Professor Debra Laefer is also chairing the upcoming 3D GeoInfo 2021 conference, a 4-day virtual event focusing on advances in spatial data collection, analysis, and visualization. NYU faculty member and noble laureate Paul Romer will give the opening talk for the conference.
