1 Computational modeling of the rat hippocampus for improving neural stimulationNeural prostheses are used to restore some level of function to tissue damaged by disease. It is important to model and correctly identify the relationship between electrical stimulation and neural response to provide a framework for prosthetic stimulation. This work will show a struc...Neural stimulation - Research; Hippocampus (Brain) - Research; Memory - Research; Rats as laboratory animals - Research; Neural prosthetic2016-05
2 Creating a Potential Solution for the Adverse Effects of Electric Vehicle LoadingThe purpose of this project was to create a smart plug-adapter, which could limit the charging rate of electric vehicles, thereby allowing for greater control of the electric load. A user is able to control the charge rate through a cellular application. This project was designed to be utilized with...2019
3 Development of a Power over Ethernet (POE) Airu SensorPoor air quality has been linked to both health and economic concerns, and is a growing research topic in Salt Lake City. The AQ&U program at the University of Utah strives to develop a large network of low-cost air quality sensors (AirU's) to study air pollution throughout the Salt Lake valley. Man...2020
4 Flight control systems with optimal effector allocation accounting for load constraintsThis paper describes the development of quadratic optimization algorithms to be used in flight control systems; such optimization algorithms aid in distributing control efforts among available actuators to produce forces to keep aircraft stable and in flight. With the advancement of computing power,...Flight control; Algorithms2013-05
5 Improving measurement techniques of thin film solar cellsNew, innovative solar cell technologies such as CZTS, CdTe, and hybrid perovskite solar cells are constantly being pursued in order to deliver better cost per Watt performance. Moreover, cost and long term reliability(25 years or more) are important factors that are currently considered. The Scarpu...Solar cells - Testing; Thin films - Research; Electric power - Research; Thermal admittance spectroscopy2016-05
6 Multipurpose control system for thermal energy scavenging applicationsThermoelectric generators, known as TEGs, can be used to generate electricity from a temperature differential. This project, undertaken by the author and senior project partner Derek Jones, characterizes the SP1848 TEG module and demonstrates its use. Expected output and optimal impedance matching a...2018
7 Power system stabilizerThe goal of this project, part of the Power Industry Consortium, was to design a power system stabilizer for a small grid-connected three phase synchronous generator. Power System Stabilizers control the excitation of synchronous generators to reduce lowfrequency oscillations on the grid and increas...Voltage regulators; Power system stabilizers2015-05
8 Studying hypothetical electromagnetic earthquake precursors using a global finite-difference time-domain modelElectromagnetic (EM) precursors may be detectable by satellites and ground-based stations before large earthquakes strike and destroy entire cities. However, earthquakes are near impossible to predict as the physics of earthquake precursors is still poorly understood. This paper reports a global...earthquake prediction - Research; Seismology - Research; Earthquake hazard analysis; Earthquake precursors; Electromagnetic signals; Ionospheric physics; Finite-difference time-domain model2016-04
