Deepakie Singh Sodhi EESL Research Assistant City Tech, CUNY
I’m Deepakie Singh Sodhi, a senior research assistant at the Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EESL) at City College of Technology. I am a recent graduate student from Queens College, majored in Data Analytics and Applied Sociology Research. I am interested in researching and working towards topics revolved around social impact concerning environmental issues, sustainability and society as a whole. My past research work contributes to public health issues such as mental illness, impact of education, gaps between gender, etc. With my research, I aim to work towards a sustainable, safer and growing society. With my master’s program, I have become an quantitative and qualitative analyst engrossed with examining, exploring and discovering important findings, patterns in large datasets. In my experience, I have analyzed big datasets, conducted effective statistical models, developed extensive and detailed reports, and used my presenting skills to expand research and analytics knowledge with others. I am excited to work on a new project with Professor Nakamura on Smart Gun Technology. Through my research, I aim to better understand the social impact of gun violence on shooters, victims and public. With all that goes around the world, I think it is important to ensure everyone feels safe and is capable to protect one another as well as themselves. Debate on gun control after multiple mass shootings in United States has been the midpoint of discussion. Through my research, I would like to actively present the importance and variation of social impact it has on us, as a society.
Laurent Elysee EESL Research Assistant City Tech, CUNY
My name is Laurent Elysee, I’m a research assistant at the Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EESL) who revels in challenges and achieving personal goals. I’m majoring in Telecommunications Engineering at New York City College of Technology. My present career aim is to work within the environmental aspects of the world in detriment to the technologies we use, and more importantly to be able to relay such information to the rest of the population with an acute awareness of detailed health risk and the danger it encompasses. I find the work interesting/satisfying and the opportunity to learn new skills and work with new technologies is particularly attractive to me. It is an honor to have Prof. Nakamura as a mentor and to be working closely with him on the focus of particulate matter (PM—Black carbon) being released in the air in many different settings. In New York city, studies have eluded to subway stations being prime areas for said plight.
