      High frequency thermoacoustic instabilities are problematic for lean-premixed gas turbines. Identifying which acoustic mode is being excited is important, in that it provides insight into potential mitigation measures, as ...
    • Identifying a Type of Genetic Code in an Anonymous, Prokaryotic DNA Sequence 

      Pfennig, Aaron; Lomsadze, Alexander; Borodovsky, Mark (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-01)
      Here we present an ab-initio approach for predicting the genetic code of an anonymous prokaryotic DNA sequence. To the best of our knowledge it is the first tool of such kind. In times of metagenomics more and more ...
    • Looking for life in the icy crust of Europa 

      Raj, Chinmayee Govinda; Speller, Nicholas; Cato, Mike; Duca, Zachary; Kim, Jungkyu; Putnam, Phil; Epperson, Jason; Stockton, Amanda M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021)
      Jupiter’s icy moon Europa is of great scientific interest due to its potential for harboring extraterrestrial life. Rather than directly looking for microbial life using optical microscopes and limiting ourselves to life ...
    • Lumos: Increasing Awareness of Biases during Visual Data Analysis 

      Narechania, Arpit; Coscia, Adam; Wall, Emily; Endert, Alex (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021)
      Human biases impact the way people analyze data and make decisions. Dark-skinned people denied parole (racial bias), women denied C-suite promotions (gender bias), ailing but younger people denied optimal treatment (age ...
    • Measure more precise than nature allows us to! 

      Xin, Lin; Kennedy, Brian; Chapman, Michael S. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021)
      Precise measurements help advance the development of science and technology. However, the current technology almost achieve the fundamental precision limit - the standard quantum limit. In our research, we are able to ...
    • Minimally invasive targeted drug delivery in the brain enhanced by closed-loop focused ultrasound control 

      Lee, Hohyun; Schoen, Scott, Jr.; Guo, Yutong; Kim, Chulyong; Arvanitis, Costas D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020)
      Minimally invasive systemic drug delivery in the brain offers several advantages over conventional invasive approaches (e.g. Ommaya reservoir). However, effective delivery still remains a major challenge. This is due to ...
    • Parameter Estimation of Mechanistic Differential Equations via Neural Differential Equations 

      Bradley, William; Boukouvala, Fani (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021)
