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:
presentation intro 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.

Thalyia Thompson
EESL Research Assistant City Tech, CUNY

I’m Thalyia Thompson a research assistant at the Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EESL). I’m a mechanical engineering major and interested in finding ways for efficiently conserving energy. I feel as if a lot of our energy is being wasted because many people don’t know how much energy they’re actually using. If we really saw how much energy was being used then maybe it would influence us to tweak the way we live our daily lives. I hope to bring in ideas that I learn from my physics, mechanics and engineer drawing classes into my research here at EESL. I have never been apart of a research group so I’m extremely excited about learning how to collect and present data in a professional format.

Bryan Ortiz
EESL Research Assistant City Tech, CUNY

My name is Bryan Ortiz and I’m a mechanical engineering tech major. I joined the EESL to learn more on ways of making renewable and sustainable energy, and to learn how to perform research. I always had an affinity to help people with my engineering, and I felt that renewable energy was the way to go, since I love nature. However, my dream is to do engineering work in other countries as well, especially Japan or Hong Kong. I want to do that by researching and creating inventions to make the world more sustainable.

EESL Senior Research Assistant Deepakie Singh Sodhi gave a presentation on making a safer, sustainable society

Following a deep discussion about gun violence in the U.S and a series of mass shootings that have taken place between 1983 -2012 totaling 78, some key take aways are:

What does the literature tell us?

  • Failures in mental health system
  • Sentimentalization of violence – popularity of gun violence and gun rights advocates in United States

What can we do to make a change?

  • Reforms mental health system needed
  • Tell full stories (media) and sensationalize armed citizens not just shooting rampages!
