The Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) at Georgia Tech has announced the winners for the 2022 Spring Core Facility Seed Grants. The primary purpose of this program is to give first- or second-year graduate students in diverse disciplines working on original and un-funded research in micro- and nano-scale projects the opportunity to access the most advanced academic cleanroom space in the Southeast.
The Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines at Georgia Tech supports and facilitates the operation of several core research facilities on campus. This allows faculty, students, and collaborators to advance the boundaries of robotics research.

As communities continue a shift toward normalcy in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, researchers in Georgia Tech’s H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering have helped quantify the effectiveness of one of the most commonly-debated mitigation measures taken across the country.
The rising sea levels along Georgia’s Savannah coast and an uptick in more severe storms during hurricane season are bellwethers to looming ecological challenges stemming from climate change.
Ongoing research to study sea level rise led by Georgia Tech researchers, a coalition of universities, Savannah and Chatham County government leaders, and local community groups is creating what could be a national model for coastal regions across the country facing similar challenges.
Georgia Tech has received two Department of Defense (DoD) 2022 Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) awards totaling almost $14 million. The highly competitive government program supports interdisciplinary teams of investigators developing innovative solutions in DoD interest areas. This year, the DoD awarded $195 million to 28 research teams across the country.
Georgians can now track where greenhouse gas emissions come from thanks to a tool that estimates those emissions at the state and county level.
Developed by Georgia Tech professors, the interactive map allows users to filter publicly available greenhouse gas estimates by county, month, year, and energy sector. Users can specify whether the emissions come from transportation, agriculture, commercial, forestry, residential, or industrial sources and counter with how much carbon is absorbed by trees and soils.
The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) solves the most pressing national security problems, from spacecraft innovations to artificial forensics, and has historically sought to partner with Georgia Tech faculty to enhance those solutions. Seeking to further enhance the benefit of research collaborations with academic faculty, last year GTRI started the Graduate Student Fellowship Program to catalyze long-term research collaborations between their scientists and researchers and GT academic facu
Through an innovative collaboration with Cisco, the global leader in networking for the internet, the Georgia Institute of Technology is pursuing 30 quick-turn research projects that touch on key priority areas such as internet for the future, capabilities at the edge, and optimized application experiences.
MagTrack Technology Opens Doors for Independent Operation of Smartphones, Computers, and Other Devices for Wheelchair Users
Brooks Rehabilitation recently announced that the MagTrack study, a collaborative research endeavor with the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been successfully completed.
Mo Jarin, a doctoral student in Georgia Tech’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering has won the Career, Research, and Innovation Development Conference’s Innovation Competition for her VoltaPure water disinfection technology.
Jarin, who is pursuing her degree in environmental health engineering, earned a $1,000 cash prize for her efforts.
