Contribution of Gaudreau and Konrad appears in Brain

By Janusz KonradJanuary 18th, 2018

Research results from Amanda Gaudreau's (PhD'17) dissertation just appeared in the January 2018 issue of Brain, a Journal of Neurology by Oxford Academic, in an article entitled "Concussion, microvascular injury, and early tauopathy in young athletes after impact head injury and an impact concussion mouse model". Amanda contributed to image analysis of mouse brains that showed tau protein clumping in nerve cells after head impact. The article is causing quite a stir as it shows for the first time, based on a mouse model, that head impact, regardless of concussion, is a likely cause of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), commonly diagnosed in NFL players. Prof. Lee Goldstein is the lead author on the article, and was Amanda's co-advisor in the course of her research at Boston University. 

Konrad leads a team to win $1M ARPA-E grant

By Janusz KonradNovember 23rd, 2017

Profs. Konrad jointly with Profs. Ishwar and Little from ECE and Prof. Gevelber from ME won a $1M grant from the Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) entitled “Scalable, Dual-Mode Occupancy Sensing for Commercial Venues”. The team will develop an occupancy sensing system to estimate the number of people in commercial spaces and monitor how this number changes over time. The sensor combines the data from panoramic cameras and low-resolution thermal door sensors using innovative fusion algorithms to accurately count humans in rooms of different shapes and sizes. The data fusion system will take advantage of off-the shelf sensors to reduce cost, while the system’s scalable design will support venues of various sizes.
