Funded Grants

1. Co-Principal Investigator (for NJIT) ENGAGE NSF Grant 2011-2012: NJIT has been selected as one of the 30 engineering schools (10 per year) who will be working to implement ENGAGE. Each of the 30 schools has a team of four faculties who have been designated implement the grant. The overarching goal of ENGAGE is to increase the capacity of engineering schools to retain undergraduate students by facilitating the implementation of three research-based strategies to improve student day-to-day classroom and educational experience. One of four faculty implementing the research strategies; David Lubliner, Lisa Axe, Eugene Golub, Gerry Milano, Priscilla Nelson. My role is in charge of the graphics-visualization component of the grant. I will teach classes and mentor other faculty who are integrating visualization modules in their classes. One research hypothesis is that students, who are predisposed to learning engineering primarily using visual examples, will have higher graduation rates. I taught graduate classes in computer graphics in past years and have expertise in Human Computer Interface (HCI) design. This was the second Time, and we were successful, we submitted the grant proposal. http://www.njit.edu/news/2011/2011-295.php.2. Co-Principal Investigator $3,000,000: NSF #0638423: 2007-2012: “C2PRISM - Computation and Communication: Promoting Research Integration in Science and Mathematics” Computation and Communication: Promoting Research Integration in Science and Mathematics (C2PRISM) is one of New Jersey´s most recently funded NSF Graduate Teaching Fellows in K-12 Education (GK-12) projects. The program supports fellowships and training for doctoral students in science, computing, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to interact with teachers and students in four Newark high schools, bringing their doctoral research into the classroom. I joined the grant mid-way when Rob Friedman left to work as a PI on another Grant. I was selected since I had previous experience working with inner city schools. www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward.do.

3. $23,000,000 award to NJIT and St. Barnabas Healthcare System, 2010-2014, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to achieve widespread meaningful use of health IT and facilitate use of an electronic health record (EHR) by every physician by the year 2014; NJIT Health Informatics initiative. I am one of two NJIT faculties, an NJIT-HITEC team and the St. Barnabas Healthcare System that supports this grant. I am one of two NJIT faculties supporting the grant. One of the grant deliverables is to work with physicians in NJ to assist them in converting to Electronic Health Records. My role is to Mentor and supervise students working with physicians. I current have seven students working on the grant and approximately 30 students completing internships at NJ hospitals. I co-authored several other Health IT grants leading up to my present role on this grant.
