For most people the word “energy” conjures images of oil and gas operations, but the science of electric power and energy systems is gaining momentum as advances in hybrid-electric cars and alternative energy systems have renewed interest in the possibilities of power electronics.

Unexpected Discovery Leads to New Theory of Liquid Streaming

Yanan Wang, a post-doctoral researcher at UH, is co-first author on a paper describing the discovery of a new principle of optofluidics

UH Researchers Generate a Liquid Stream with a Pulsed Laser

Researchers at the University of Houston were studying the nonlinear transmission of light through an aqueous suspension of gold nanoparticles when they noticed something unexpected. A pulse laser appeared to have forced the movement of a stream of liquid in a glass laboratory cuvette.

Hurricane Harvey Resource Guide

The University of Houston MD Anderson Library is providing a guide to help navigate through the resources available in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and its devastating aftermath.

Researchers Report Breakthrough in Magnesium Batteries

This schematic shows the structural evolution of titanium disulfide at different stages of intercalation. Interlayers are expanded or distorted as different amounts of pillaring molecules, complex cations and solvents are intercalated into the van der Waals gap of a host material at each stage.

Nanostructured Cathode, Understanding of New Electrolyte Lead to Greater Efficiency

Magnesium batteries offer promise for safely powering modern life – unlike traditional lithium ion batteries, they are not flammable or subject to exploding – but their ability to store energy has been limited.

Use of Brain-Computer Interface & Virtual Avatar Offers New Hope to Patients with Gait Disabilities

Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal, Cullen College professor of electrical and computer engineering

Researchers Demonstrate Non-Invasive Method Can Help People Re-Learn to Walk

Researchers from the University of Houston have shown for the first time that the use of a brain-computer interface augmented with a virtual walking avatar can control gait, suggesting the protocol may help patients recover the ability to walk after stroke, some spinal cord injuries and certain other gait disabilities.

The Man Who Helped Plug in Commercial Electric Cars is Plugging Away at the UH Power Program

UH Power program in the hands of the electrifying Kaushik Rajashekara

There are many ways to describe electrical and computer engineering Professor Kaushik Rajashekara, who heads the Cullen College power and energy systems program and is director of the Power Electronics, Microgrids and Subsea Electrical Systems (PEMSES) Center at UH: Member of the National Academy of Engineering, Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, inductee of the Delphi Innovation Hall of Fame or, even, a member of the team that

College Holds Memorial for Dedicated Alumnus and Supporter William A. Brookshire

More than 500 guests honored the memory and legacy of dedicated UH alumnus and long-time supporter William A. Brookshire at a memorial service held in his honor this summer. The Brookshire Memorial Service was held at the UH Student Center on May 19, nearly one month after Brookshire’s passing in April.

NIH Grant to Study Breast Cancer

David Mayerich is part of NIH-backed group creating a new device to study breast cancer

David Mayerich, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the UH Cullen College, is part of a national group receiving funds from the National Institutes of Health to study breast cancer.

The group will develop a new device which will mimic organ-specific breast cancer metastasis patterns. The device will be tissue-engineered and will investigate what regulates organ specificity and why some cells undergo dormancy.

Stanko Brankovic Wins Top Award in Field of Chemical Engineering

Stanko Brankovic's work in electrochemicals electrifies leading organization

If there were Academy Awards in the field of electrochemical material science, Stanko Brankovic, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at the Cullen College and past chair of the materials science division of the International Society of Electrochemistry, would be taking home an Oscar.
