FloodNet: Hyperlocal flood sensors to support real-time flood monitoring, flood response, and urban resilience planning in NYC

“A public/private consortium including NYU Tandon, researchers at the City University of New York (CUNY) and NYC Mayor’s Office of Climate Resiliency and Mayor’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer plans to expand city-wide a pilot project …

Researchers investigate how lasers can lead to cleaner crystallization process

“Microscopic experiments could make massive industrial processes more sustainable: researchers investigate laser-induced crystallization using microfluidics. When Bruce Garetz, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, examined the test tubes that his student had exposed to laser light in his lab, he …

New research infuses equity principles into the algorithm development process

“In the U.S., the place where one was born, one’s social and economic background, the neighborhoods in which one spends one’s formative years, and where one grows old are factors that account for a quarter to 60 …
