All Recent Accomplishments
Milan Toma, Ph.D., assistant professor of clinical sciences and graduate students Yaoyixiao Lu and Hanchen Zhou had their paper “Thresholding Segmentation Errors and Uncertainty with Patient-Specific Geometries,” published in the PubMed Central and Scopus indexed Journal of Biomedical Physics and Engineering on October 31, 2020.

Maria Perbellini, Ph.D., dean of the School of Architecture and Design, was a panelist at the New York City Architecture Biennial Conference on October 23, 2020. She was part of a session on “Social Inclusion in the Workplace and in Design.”
Steven J. Shapiro, Ph.D., professor of accounting and finance, and Peter Harris, professor of accounting and finance, co-authored a publication with Umapathy Ananthanarayanan, “The Impact of New Lease Standards Under US GAAP and IFRS on Financial Ratios,” published by the Review of Business and Finance Studies on October 22, 2020.
Susana Case, Ph.D., professor of behavioral sciences, won a spot as a 2020 Distinguished Favorite for Poetry from the NYC Big Book Awards for her book Dead Shark on the N Train.
Pamela Karp, Ed.D., OR/L, CHT, assistant professor of the occupational therapy, published her study “Occupational Therapy Student Readiness for Transition to the Fieldwork Environment: A Pilot Case Study” in the Open Journal Occupational Therapy on October 15, 2020. The results of the study revealed that while academic and fieldwork educators value similar characteristics of student readiness for transition to fieldwork, there is a need to develop collaborative strategies between the two settings to improve awareness of the value of theory-driven practice and to support authentic incorporation of theory into practice as part of the educative process of supervising fieldwork students.
Emily Rukobo, M.A., executive director for global engagement, presented “High Impact Practices at Home & Abroad: A Model for Effective Equity & Inclusion” at the AAC&U 2020 Conference on Global Learning on October 9, 2020.
Kevin LaGrandeur, Ph.D., professor of English, had his research paper, “How safe is our reliance on AI, and should we regulate it?” published in the Springer Link on October 6, 2020. This article is one of the twelve that founding editorial board members—scientists, humanists, and corporate researchers—wrote for the initial issue of the journal.
Chinmoy Bhattacharjee, Ph.D., assistant professor for physics, proposed a novel mechanism of magnetic field and fluid flow generation in the early universe. He spoke about his findings in his article, “Vortex generation in the early Universe,” in Astronomy & Astrophysics on October 2, 2020.
