3D modeling, CNC machining and extrusion molding

I am looking for a student who is interested in learning 3D modeling, CNC machining and extrusion molding. My lab has a very nice CNC machine, Tormach 440 (see here https://www.tormach.com/pcnc-440/). I plan to utilize this CNC machine to make plastic enclosures for the small wearable sensors. First, 3D models of enclosures and molds to make these enclosures need to be designed in Fusion 360 software. Then the molds need to be machined out of wax and tested. When the molds are fully tested, we will need to machine them from aluminum. The machined molds then will be used with a plastic extrusion machine to make enclosures. This is a rather involved project but a fun learning experience for anyone interested in advanced manufacturing....

Bioinorganic chemistry of chromium/new drugs for diabetes

Elucidation of the structure, function, and mode of action of metallobiomolecules.The elucidation of the structure, function, and mode of action of metallobiomolecules via: 1) spectroscopic, magnetic, kinetic and biochemical studies of the natural systems and 2) the synthesis and characterization of biomimetic inorganic complexes. Our research applies biochemical and synthetic and physical inorganic methods to characterize the function and properties of metallobiomolecules (naturally occurring molecules such as proteins, nucleic acids, sugars, etc. that contain tightly bound metal ions). The presence of the metal ions gives these species unique magnetic and spectroscopic properties (such as color) that provide avenues (not available to t...

Adaptive design of immersive e-learning lab (ADIE)

Our lab (ADIE) is looking for passionate undergraduate students working together! Our lab ADIE (adaptive design of immersive e-learning lab) is currently studying how immersive learning technologies support marginalized learners in STEM education. Educational technology is an academic discipline that addresses ways to utilize technologies to make our society, world, and education better. We believe that engaging digital platforms (e.g., VR and digital games) can help underrepresented students to be involved in education with pursuing the value of diversity, inclusion and equity. For instance, the major research project that our lab is doing is the design and development of a digital game-based learning platform aimed to enhance integrat...
