One lesson learned from the Covid-19 pandemic is that human behavior is a difficult variable to consider when predicting and preventing disease outbreaks. This challenge is magnified even more considering how different scientific fields conduct, interpret, and present research.
Classroom Air Sensor
Georgia Tech researchers have identified that in-situ measurements of either carbon dioxide (CO2) or particulate matter (PM) by low-cost sensors can be used to perform such calculations in classrooms.
Tech Tower
Graduate students from each of the six College of Sciences schools have received 2022-2023 Herbert P. Haley Fellowships to expand their research — and connect with fellow scientists and mathematicians at conferences and events.  
The inaugural cohort for the Interdisciplinary Health and Environment Leadership Development (IHE-LeaD) Program at Georgia Tech. Info on the cohort's fellows is found at the IHE-LeaD website.
The Interdisciplinary Health and Environment Leadership Development (IHE-LeaD) Program announces its first cohort of graduate student fellows from the College of Sciences, the College of Engineering, and the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.

Senior academic professional and wellness requirement co-director Teresa Snow talks about volunteering, a key aspect of her Serve-Learn-Sustain (SLS) affiliated APPH 1040 course, Scientific Foundations of Health, which is available to all undergraduates.  
spiral wave in heart
Researchers at Georgia Tech and clinicians at the Emory University School of Medicine are bringing a new understanding to these complicated conditions with the first high-resolution visualizations of stable spiral waves in human ventricles.
The Kashlan Triplets, NEURO '22
As triplets, Adam, Rommi, and Zane Kashlan are used to doing things together. After three years at Georgia Tech, the brothers added one more thing to that list: graduating with a trio of Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience degrees and gearing up for medical school. We recently spoke with the Kashlans about their time at Georgia Tech, advice for students, and what’s next on the horizon.

Physicists at Georgia Tech have proven — numerically and experimentally — that turbulence in fluid flows can be understood and quantified with the help of a small set of special solutions that can be precomputed for a particular geometry, once and for all. The findings reveal a new, dynamical framework for turbulence, with a wide range of applications, from more accurate weather forecasts to improving the fuel efficiency of cars and airplanes.
Fall 2022 GT Astrobiology Distinguished Lecture and Social Event
Please join us for the Fall 2022 GT Astrobiology Distinguished Lecture and Social Event! In the afternoon, there will be a social event with food and refreshments beginning at 4:00 PM, located at the Molecular Science and Engineering (MoSE) outdoor patio, ground floor. We will also be taking a group photo at this time, so bring your GT Astrobiology shirts!
