EESL Members blogging for the environment

Team members Xaio Lin and Patrice Prosper are actively contributing to the ClimateYou blog run Abby Luby.

Student articles on this site range from topics food waste to technologically nuances but all have the common focus of Climate Change.

Xiao writes about on China’s water scarcity in the following article.

  

Patrice writes on “fast fashion” impacts on the environmental.

All students are welcome to submit articles related to climate change for publishing on CimateYou.

Email your content for review by the Climateyou editing team at climateyou@gmail.com.

EESL workshop: “What does being a researcher/engineer/scientist/designer mean to you?”

Professor Nakamura engages his STEAM researchers in a thought provoking  topic on “What does being a scientist mean to you?”.

EESL members worked on posters, sincerely answering the set of questions:

  1. What do you think the ideal researcher/engineer/scientist/designer would be?
  2. Do you have an idea for enforcing our leadership; being a self-starter?
  3. What are you research goals?/ Updates on prior goals?

    

What does the City Tech community think it means to be a  researcher/engineer/scientist/designer?

EESL at the Semi-Annual CUNY Undergraduate Poster Presentation: participants Bryan Ortiz, Xiao Lin, and Patrice Prosper

Congratulations EESL members on Bryan Ortiz, Xiao Lin, and Patrice Prosper!

                    

They completed semester long  research projects,  among 129 City Tech participants.

                  

Their design and technology are a demonstration of EESL’s core values in Energy and Environmental conscious research, sustainability and  living.

                     

      

 

Research Presentation: Testing Subway Air Quality Using Sensor Technology by Laurent Elysee

EESL celebrates the end of  the Fall 2018  semester with another great research topic :

Research Assistant Laurent Elysee presents the “Subway Air Quality” data collected  via sensor technology.

Throughout the semester Tu Nguyen, Laurent Elysee and Patrice Prosper conducted research; collecting data using programmed Arduino sensor tech on NYC subway platforms.

The  “Real Time Airborne Particle Emissions” research project was headed by Tu Nguyen who also severed as lead for “The NSF 2026 Idea Machine” research grant application.

 

 

Research Presentation: “Anaerobic Indoor Composter” by Xiao Lin

This Fall 2018 semester Xiao Lin has been hard at work, designing an Anaerobic Indoor Composter for household mix organic disposal.

We are all proud of Xiao’s successful research!

    

The technology is sophisticated and requires the use of EESL’s sensor technology.

The composter design is being entered in the “CUNY-I-CORPS”, a precursor to the “NSF Regional I-Corps” program, to find a potential commercial market segment.

      

Research (inquiry and investigation) during Winter Break 2019

EESL’s winter break was filled with inquiry and investigation.

What if our technology could be brought to a commercial audience?

We joined CUNY-I-CORPS and presented our tech:

Then we tested our hypothesis by interviewing a few market segments:

farmers market

Finally we presented our results:

Do we have a viable product?

Join our next event and find out.

Ryan Redhead
EESL Research Assistant City Tech, CUNY

I’m Ryan Redhead, a research assistant at the Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EESL). I am a Mechanical Engineering major at New York City College of Technology and I am interested in turning waste to energy. What I can bring to the group, in particular, will come in the form of knowledge in Mechanical Engineering. This research seems particularly interesting to me since so much waste is produced by people. This waste is taking up space and not being utilized in the world to its full potential. To me, waste seems like an abundant untapped resource. If we can find a way to harness energy from waste, the possibilities would be endless. I am excited to learn more about research in general and the topic of turning waste into energy.
