Dion Vlachos, Director of the Delaware Energy Institute and the Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation and DSI Faculty Council Member is co-PI on a $3.69 million grant from the National Science Foundation. Dr. Vlachos along with other University of Delaware researchers are working to unlock new routes to sustainably develop materials from lignin.
Rudi Eigenmann, Professor, Electrical & Computer Engineering and DSI Faculty Council Member, DiCos Core Director and Chair, DSI Infrastructure Working Group has been named a Fellow of IEEE (formerly known as The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). Professor Eigenmann was named a Fellow for contributions to compilers for high-performance computing.
Rodrigo Vargas, Associate Professor of Ecosystem Ecology and Environmental Change and DSI Faculty Council Member, and doctoral student Mario Guevara have developed a new, more accurate way to map predicted soil moisture, even in areas where no data have been available.
DSI Resident Faculty and Assistant Professor in the departments of Geography & Spatial Sciences and Plant & Soil Sciences, Kyle Davis, led a study that shows how India can improve nutrition, climate resilience, and the environment by diversifying its crop production.
A new suite of online and short intensive courses in winter and spring are being offered as part of the new Graduate Certificate in Minerals, Materials and Society. You do NOT have to be enrolled in program to take courses – all welcome!!! They are offered at 600 level for grad students and undergrads can take 400 level versions or take the 600 level ones with permission form signed by advisor.
The online offerings in spring are part of our new MOU with University of Queensland, Australia. Courses are taken as regular UD courses but offered online by Australian faculty.
UD President Dennis Assanis speaks at the symposium on the future of data science at UD.
Serving as a nucleating effort to catalyze and coordinate data science initiatives at UD
- Coalesce researchers around Data Science research themes
- Develop competitive Data Science research programs
- Support Data Science and Computing Core Facility
- Engage students in Data Science research
- Collaborate with government and industry partners
As the vast resource of new and diverse datasets are rapidly becoming available in nearly every aspect of life, data science has the potential to advance human understanding in all branches of science and humanities, and, address grand challenges facing society. The Institute plans to combine disparate, dynamic, and distributed datasets and enable everything from predicting the future behavior of complex systems to precise medical treatments, smart energy usage, and focused educational curricula.
