Red Hot Research

Red Hot Research

As a part of our continued effort to bring together scholars from all disciplines, and in response to the call set forth by Bold Aspirations, The Commons presents the Research Sharing Sessions--a series designed specifically for research exchange. The format of these sessions is inspired by Pecha Kucha, which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to an idea.

The goals of these sessions are:

- To introduce KU Researchers to the work of their colleagues
- To address questions within current research using the perspectives of many disciplines
- To develop collaborative research teams as a result of overlapping interest & expertise

We invite all KU Researchers to join the conversation.

WORKING GROUPS

Network Science

Exploring the computational tools used by James Sterbenz to study the network formed by the national electrical grid to determine whether these tools could be used in other areas and focus on problems in different domains that have a common underlying cause. Current collaborators: John Symons, Philosophy; James Sterbenz, Electrical Engineering & Computer Science; and Michael Vitevitch, Psychology (Contact Michael Vitevitch to join the discussion: mvitevit@ku.edu)

Smart Cities

Interdisciplinary group to discuss research interests, exchange information, and plan funding proposals for smart cities. Smart cities weave ICT (information and communications technology) into the socioeconomic fabric and city critical infrastructure including data communication, transportation, and the smart grid, in the form of sensors, actuators, processing, and storage. The goal is to improve the quality of life of citizens while providing sustainability, resilience, and energy-efficiency. Coordinator: James P.G. Sterbenz, Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (Contact jpgs@ittc.ku.edu to join the discussion)

Red Hot ResearchRed Hot Research is intended to bring together scholars from all disciplines, in response to the call set forth by Bold Aspirations. The format of these sessions is inspired by Pecha Kucha, which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to a topic. Each installment features faculty members, speaking for six minutes each. Audience members are encouraged to connect with the speakers (and each other) during breaks. We hope that through these sessions, faculty members will have a venue for cross-disciplinary partnering and exploration.

Presenters:
Pamela Sullivan, Geography & Atmospheric Science, Climate change, Critical Zone, Water Availability
Brian Atkinson, Biodiversity Institute
Keith Van de Riet, Architecture, Biomimicry, Camouflage, Behavioral Patterns, Regenerative Design
David Fowle, Geology/Environmental Studies Program, Energy, Mining, Batteries, Recycling

Red Hot ResearchRed Hot Graduate Research is intended to bring together graduate researchers from all disciplines. The format of these sessions is inspired by Red Hot Research, which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to a topic. In this iteration, Red Hot Graduate Research will feature five graduate researchers speaking for six minutes each.

Audience members are encouraged to connect with the speakers (and each other) during breaks. We hope that through these sessions, graduate students will have an opportunity for cross-disciplinary discourse that will in turn give new perspectives on their work and provide a forum for future work in their chosen research fields.

Presenters:
David Tamez, Philosophy, Interpretation in Law
Rene Martin, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Bioluminescence in the Sea
Max Murphy, Bioengineering, Open Source Tools for Neurophysiologists
Amittia Parker, Social Welfare
Heather Lassmann, Social Welfare, Disability & the Child Welfare System
