Two ENG professors have been awarded nearly $1 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) as part of the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) initiative. Principal Investigator Associate Professor Kamal Sen (BME) and Co-Principal Investigator Associate Professor Xue Han (BME) will study the neural networks that allow the brain to distinguish sounds from each other.
BU was named one of the most innovative national universities for the first time in the 2019 US News & World Report Best Colleges rankings, out today. “I think there’s a general understanding that the world of higher education is changing rapidly,” says Gerald Fine (MSE, ME). “The leadership of the University has created an environment where experimentation in better ways to educate students is encouraged.”

Khurshid heads the BU CAIR Laboratory and opens doors to SE graduate students this fall. Systems engineers further CAIR productivity by offering a strong mathematical background to model the complexities of systems consisting of human beings and robots. These models can then be used to generate desired behaviors in a robotic partner.
Duan’s award will help fund his research into replicating cell-to-cell communication. He is one of the 35 YFA awardees this year and will receive close to $500,000 from DARPA over the next two years to pursue his project and he could receive an additional $500,000 based on the progress of the project.
BU ECE Students receive Best Paper Award at the ASIA Conference on Computer and Communication Security 2018
Realizing that the correlation between malware and HPC traces does not establish causation, Boston University graduate students Boyou Zhou, Rasoul Jahanshahi and Anmol Gupta, under the supervision of Professors Manuel Egele and Ajay Joshi, evaluated works that propose this HPC-based methodology for malware detection.
A novel four-step process has been developed by researchers including Assistant Professor Tommaso Ranzani (ME) and Assistant Professor Sheila Russo (ME) to construct microfluidic origami for reconfigurable pneumatic/hydraulic (MORPH) systems. Their work, published in Advanced Materials, details the process and demonstrates its capabilities with the fabrication of a highly complex soft structure.
Materials Professor Malika Jeffries-EL elected ACS Fellow for her research activity and dedication to “diversifying the chemical workforce through mentoring and training students.”
