Civil engineering Associate Professor D.J. Seo is using a National Science Foundation grant to improve the sustainability of large urban areas from extreme weather, urbanization, and climate change.
Engineering researchers have designed a device based on a shorebird’s beak that can accumulate water from fog and dew. If it can be mass-produced, the invention could provide relief for drought-plagued regions.
UTA received a grant from the Walmart Foundation to build a small motors assembly plant and testing system that would cut manufacturing costs, allowing more goods to be produced in the United States.
A National Science Foundation grant is helping earth and environmental sciences Assistant Professor W. Ashley Griffith study how rock structures react to events such as earthquakes, meteor impacts, and explosions.
As a producer, director, and actor, Julienne Greer knows how to draw people’s deepest emotions to the surface. Now, she’s using that knowledge to help scientists and engineers build more lifelike robots.
Engineering, nursing, and social work researchers are combating the rise in mental illness among young adults by developing better ways to screen for depression, treat PTSD in veterans, and more.
Professor Kay-Yut Chen’s research examines why people make the decisions they do in business and how we can predict those decisions. Such data-driven insights help companies improve their bottom line.
By studying the genomes of such diverse creatures as pigeons, pythons, and beetles, UT Arlington biologists are uncovering important insights into what makes us human.
UT Arlington researchers have designed an apartment equipped with intelligent care technology to reduce risks encountered by older adults and people with disabilities who want to live independently in their own homes.
Conversations about sustainability usually include topics like renewable energy and carbon emissions. But when biochemistry senior John Gurak addresses the subject, he focuses on something entirely different.
