Huang Ramanath Yu Kilduff
Wesley Huang studies a new generation of mobile robots, focusing on cooperative robots that work together to do manipulation tasks (e.g. moving and reorienting objects). He expects such robots to be used someday in planetary exploration and other environments inhospitable to humans. G. Ramanath studies atomic-level phenomena in thin films of copper and its alloys, and molecular layers formed by self-assembly. With his work, he hopes to enable the realization of smaller, faster, and more reliable microprocessors and nanodevices. Thomas Yu works in a branch of mathematics known as approximation theory, with applications in fields as various as data compression, data estimation, medical imaging, and computer animation. Chip Kilduff studies the application of membrane and adsorption processes to potable water and industrial wastewater treatment. His work explores the mechanisms of fouling and develops strategies to control it.
