All Recent Accomplishments

Babak D. Beheshti, Ph.D., dean of NYIT College of Engineering and Computing Sciences, was quoted in the story "Imagining the Newsroom of Tomorrow," published in The Washington Post on August 7, 2020. The story discussed how 5G could reshape the future of journalism.

Houwei Cao, Ph.D., assistant professor of computer science, received a National Science Foundation Award for her proposal, "EAGER: Towards Adaptive and Robust Multimodal Emotion Recognition In-the-Wild," on July 30, 2020. The one-year grant, which runs from August 1, 2020, through July 31, 2021, has a total intended award amount of $99,916.

Sarah Meyland, M.S., J.D., associate professor of environmental technology and sustainability, was quoted in "How LI homebuyers can learn about their water quality," an article by Rachel O'Brien published in Newsday on July 23, 2020. She spoke about how homeowners should know about drinking water quality and how they can find out more if they are concerned about their water quality.

Milan Toma, Ph.D., assistant professor of mechanical engineering, published paper in Biology titled "Effect of Edge-to-Edge Mitral Valve Repair on Chordal Strain: Fluid-Structure Interaction Simulations," on July 18, 2020. The paper demonstrates the potential for computational simulations to aid in the pre-procedural evaluation of possible complications such as chordal rupture and leaflet perforation following percutaneous edge-to-edge repair.
