Meet our Fellows: Eric Heindl

Home University: Salzburg University of Applied SciencesHost University: University of Southern CaliforniaTopic: Communication via 5G network slices in the smart grid Hi, my name is Eric and I'm currently in Los Angeles studying as a researcher at the University of Southern California (USC). I'm working on my master thesis here, within cooperation between the Salzburg University of Applied Science and USC. My research focus id on how to use the 5G mobile network for a communication in the smart grid (power grid). The first couple of weeks in Los Angeles were overwhelming. Studying at USC is...

Home University: FH Technikum Wien(University of Applied Sciences Vienna)Host University: Shirley Ryan AbilityLabTopic: Comparison of the performance of passive ankle, adaptive positioning and powered ankle prostheses Over the next few months, I will be working at the Center for Bionic Medicine of the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab in Chicago. My master thesis will be focusing on the evaluation of a hybrid leg prosthesis. More specifically, I will investigate the impact of powered knee and ankle devices on the biomechanics of human gait. I am very much looking forward to an educational stay and a...

Meet our Fellows: Abdullah Jabr

Home University: Montanuniversitaet LeobenHost University: The Pennsylvania State University - Material Research InstituteTopic: Processing and microstructural characterization of cold sintered ceramics Ceramics are recognized as strong candidate materials for modern advanced applications, owing to their outstanding mechanical, chemical and high-temperature resistance. However, such high stability poses difficulties in their fabrication process, limiting it to powder-based routes where high temperatures, typically higher than 1000°C, are applied. Therefore, ceramic fabrication results in high...
