Blood spatter research by Dr. Alexander Yarin
Calling the Shots
Professor Yarin Developing New Blood Spatter Models to Better Reconstruct Crime ScenesBlood spatter can provide a lot of information to an investigator at a crime scene. Unfortunately, current methods do not tell the whole story. UIC Distinguished Professor Alexander Yarin and his colleagues have shown that investigators can gather more accurate information. Their blood spatter research has the potential to change crime scene investigations in the same way DNA changed other police investigations.Yarin and his associates made a splash in the science and law enforcement communities with their research on blood spatter with their papers, Prediction of Blood Backspatter from a Gunshot in Bloodstain Pattern Analysis, which was published in the journal Physical Review Fluids in 2016, High-Speed Video Analysis…

Researchers Create One of the Smallest Nanoparticle Stabilized Nanoemulsions with New Technique
MIE Assistant Professor Sushant Anand and his research associates have had multiple breakthroughs with their work on oil-water mixtures or “emulsions.” Now, the researchers have taken their research to a new level by creating ultra-small (100-400 nm in sizes) nanoemulsions formed by self-assembly of nanoparticles around droplets.The traditional way to make nanoemulsions has multiple steps, but Anand and his team have developed a single-step technique for creating nanoemulsions that is faster, more energy efficient, and smaller. The results of the research were recently published in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces journal under the title Synthesizing Pickering Nanoemulsions by Vapor Condensation.“Nanotechnology has a huge role to play in dealing with many problems in today’s time. Take oil-water emulsions as an example.…

MIE Students Display Innovation and Creativity at Design Expo
MIE students showed their innovation and creativity during the 29th Annual UIC Engineering Senior Design Expo on Friday, April 27, at the UIC Forum. MIE students were among more than 528 seniors from the College of Engineering (COE) presenting within 27 project categories. They produced 15 Best in Category winning teams in the 12 categories — some categories had two winners — in which they participated.The Best in Category In the Building Services Engineering category, the team of Alex Bashqawi, Michael C. Gonzalez, Erik I Pyshnov, Skyler Wilkinson, and Jingwei Wu won for their project ASHRAE 2018 Student Design Competition: HVAC System Design. The students were sponsored by UIC ASHARE.Two MIE teams were named winners in the Consumer Product Development category. The…

MEE ASHARE scholarship winners 2018
Three MEE Students Awarded ASHRAE Scholarships
UIC’s Master of Energy Engineering (MEE) students continue their winning ways. Students Hardik Miyani, Lisa White and Zaki Mafraji were recently named winners of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Illinois Chapter 2018 Scholarships.Miyani and White were awarded $1,500, and Mafraji received $750. The students were three of only five people to receive the scholarships. UIC students have been awarded scholarships every year since 2011.The scholarships are geared toward encouraging undergraduates to pursue studies in engineering, science or mathematics that would be fundamental for a career in the heating, ventilating, refrigeration and air conditioning field. The scholarships are awards each year and based on academic merit, stewardship and student participation in ASHRAE.“Winning the Chicago ASHRAE scholarships is…

2018 Silver Circle Winner Jonathan Komperda
MIE Lecturer Jonathan Komperda has been named a 2018 Silver Circle Award. Since 1966, the Silver Circle Award has been presented to some of UIC’s best teachers. Winners, who are honored at their college commencements, receive $500 and their names join a long list of distinguished colleagues. But what makes the award especially meaningful is its selection committee: the graduating seniors.Learn more about Komperda at Silver Circle Winners.
