EESL kickoff starts on the right foot, a presentation from mentor Professor Nakamura.
He explains the Nakamura equation for the movement of different sized mixed solid waste, on combustion chamber grate beds.
Everyone in EESL is eager to contribute to Professor Nakamura’s research.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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:
- What do you think the ideal researcher/engineer/scientist/designer would be?
- Do you have an idea for enforcing our leadership; being a self-starter?
- 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?
Leave a reply below.
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.
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.
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.
EESL students completed a short course of the CUNY i-corps program for #startups#startuplife #smarttechnology #stem #steam#robotics #cunyicorps
at Advanced Science Research Center at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
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:
Finally we presented our results:
Do we have a viable product?
Join our next event and find out.
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.

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.
