Alex Godwin is a Ph.D. student in Georgia Tech’s Information Interfaces lab, led by John Stasko, a professor in the School of Interactive Computing. Godwin’s research in visualization and visual analytics focuses on ways to help people understand and investigate information that is important and useful to their lives.
A study of how honey bees forage for food has led to development of an algorithm that major web-hosting companies are using to streamline internet services. The project also has attracted a national award for the Georgia Tech team that conducted the research.
A research team from Georgia Tech and ExxonMobil has demonstrated a new carbon-based molecular sieve membrane that could dramatically reduce the energy required to separate a class of hydrocarbon molecules known as alkyl aromatics.
What if your medical diagnosis and treatment could be further informed by the experience of millions of other patients, including those who not only had similar symptoms, but perhaps also were your age, gender, ethnicity — and with similar medical history?
Photonics, the technology that helps drive today’s telecommunications systems, offers major advances in the area of signal transmission. Researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute are adapting optical techniques from the telecom arena to enhance U.S. electronic warfare capabilities.
Georgia Tech’s 2017 Emerging Cyber Threats, Trends, and Technologies report highlights concerns about global manipulation of information, health care fraud, data encryption, and other issues likely to affect society in the year ahead.
Baratunde Cola would like to put sand into your computer. Not beach sand, but silicon dioxide nanoparticles coated with a high dielectric constant polymer to inexpensively provide improved cooling for increasingly power-hungry electronic devices.
Software created by Georgia Tech researchers proved crucial during a recent project to devise an imaging system that could someday allow historians to read fragile antique books without turning the pages.
A nanoparticle commonly used in food, cosmetics, sunscreen, and other products can have subtle effects on the activity of genes expressing enzymes that address oxidative stress inside at least two types of living cells.
