Nancy Meyer - Teaching Teachers Teaching Teachers
Nancy Meyer earned a bachelor's degree in special education from Purdue and is now pursuing a doctoral degree in special education. She is specializing in mild disabilities, and hopes to inspire teachers who want to become special education teachers.
Mila Sugovic - Tennis Players' Perceptions Tennis Players' Perceptions
Purdue researchers Mila Sugovic, on the right, a third-year doctoral student in cognitive psychology, and Jessica K. Witt, left, an assistant professor of psychological sciences who studies perception in sports, found that when people are playing tennis well they perceive the ball as moving slower and the net as lower to the ground.

Yaguo Wang - Harvesting Exhaust Heat Harvesting Exhaust Heat
Purdue mechanical engineering doctoral student Yaguo Wang works with a high-speed laser at the Birck Nanotechnology Center to study thermoelectric generators. The devices harvest heat from an engine's exhaust to generate electricity, which could reduce a car's fuel consumption. (Purdue University photo/Mark Simons)
Lisa Choe - Effects of Fire on Steel Effects of Fire on Steel
Purdue civil engineering doctoral student Lisa Choe, center (in yellow) works with graduate student Sungwoo Oh in using a one-of-a-kind heating system to study the effects of fire on steel structures. Research assistant Michael Bratt, far left, looks on. The work is led by Amit Varma, a Purdue associate professor of civil engineering (green hardhat), seen here with graduate students Erica Fischer and Kristi Selden.

Chris Currey - Rice Hulls are Drainage Option Entertaining Audiences
Greenhouse plant growers can substitute rice hulls for perlite in their media without the need for an increase in growth regulators, according to a Purdue University study conducted by Chris Currey, on the right, a horticulture graduate student and co-author of the HortTechnology paper and Roberto Lopez, left, a Purdue assistant professor of horticulture and co-author of this paper.
Go Choi - Hydrogen-Generating Technology Hydrogen-Generating
Purdue doctoral student Go Choi watches hydrogen being generated in a new process to extract the gas from seawater. The hydrogen could then be used to run engines in boats and ships, representing a potential replacement for gasoline and diesel fuel in marine applications. (Purdue University photo/Mark Simons)
Evan Breedlove - Brain Impact Data Brain Impact Data
Biomedical engineering doctoral student Evan Breedlove, on the right, and Thomas Talavage, left, a Purdue associate professor of biomedical engineering and electrical and computer engineering monitor impact data from high school football players. Recent research findings suggest many high school football players suffer undiagnosed changes in brain function and continue playing even though they are impaired.

Sara Underwood and Matt Houtteman - Bomb Detecting Technologies Bomb Detecting Technologies
Purdue mechanical engineering doctoral student Sara Underwood, left, and graduate student Matt Houtteman, center, along with professor Douglas Adams on the right, review data using a three-dimensional laser vibrometer. The equipment is among specialized laboratory systems that will be used in a national effort to create a new line of defense against improvised explosive devices and hidden bombs by developing detectors that use sound and radio waves to penetrate shielding materials.

Allison Dill and Livia Eberlin - Prostate Cancer Marker Prostate Cancer Marker
Purdue graduate students Allison Dill, left, and Livia Eberlin, right, use desorption electrospray ionization, or DESI, to examine samples. They are part of a research team led by Graham Cooks, Purdue's Henry Bohn Hass Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, that uncovered a potential prostate cancer marker.

Shawn Jordan, Hanguan Xian and Kate Mane - EcoExplorer Team EcoExplorer Team
Engineering Education doctoral students Shawn Jordan, center, and Hanjun Xian, left, with Ag Economics student Kate Mane on the right, developed an iPhone app called the "EcoExplorer." EcoExplorer lets learners solve environmental mysteries by connecting them with real-world sensor data from the past or present, all in the palms of their hands.
Jeff Rautenberg - Improving Building Safety Improving Building Safety
Jeff M. Rautenberg, a Purdue civil engineering graduate student, measures cracks in a reinforced beam during an experiment to determine what happens in a disaster that takes out support columns. The work is aimed at helping the National Institute of Standards and Technology ensure that buildings are safe from natural and human-caused disasters that could knock out a vital supporting column.

Joshua Cox - Business Plan Competition Business Plan Competition
Purdue MBA student Joshua Cox helps deliver the winning presentation for Glytrix, a company developing a tissue-healing technology that also reduces scarring, at the 23rd annual Burton D. Morgan Business Plan Competition on Tuesday. Glytrix captured the $30,000 top prize in the Gold Division, which is open to Purdue graduate students and others.

David Snyder - Reducing Biodiesel Fuel Consumption Reducing Biodiesel Fuel
Graduate student David Snyder, on the right, and Gregory M. Shaver, left, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Purdue discuss how to modify a commercial diesel engine with a new technique that promises to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides for engines running on biodiesel. Graduate student Gayatri Adi (background) reviews software algorithms needed for the new technology. (Purdue News Service file photo)
