RESEARCH | Annual Report 2014 01


Dear Colleagues, It is with great pleasure that we present the FY 2014 University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Annual Grants and Contracts Report. This has been a great year for the University and an exciting time to be part of our Research, Scholarship, and Innovation (RSI) community. Louis Goodman Interim Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development

This report recognizes the achievements of our faculty, their staff and students in winning a range of awards including two National Science Foundation CAREER Awards in Biology and Civil and Environmental Engineering, Defense funding for applied and theoretical research, State support for an Advanced Manufacturing Academy, and industry funding for chemical probes and molecule design. These pages contain many more testaments to the ingenuity and passion of the UMassD faculty.

UMASSDTRANSFORM2020 Strategic Plan The new UMASSDTRANSFORM2020 strategic plan identifies the achievement of Carnegie Doctoral Research University (DRU) status as one of the highest priorities. We are on the verge of attaining this – if the review process for this status were to be held today UMassD would qualify. We rolled out the new UMASSDTRANSFORM2020 plan following a year of study. Two very important recommendations in support of research growth have already been implemented. These were: (1) the establishment of a new position of Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development (VCRED) and (2) the formation of a permanent RSI advisory committee reporting to the VCRED. I was appointed interim VCRED, and have in turn appointed research active and externally-funded faculty members to the RSI Committee.

Research seed fund programs Last year Provost Karim and Associate Provost for Graduate Studies Meressi initiated two internal “seed” programs. The Multidisciplinary Research Program supported six teams of 20 faculty, and the Summer Faculty Research program supported 10 faculty members. We plan to closely track the impact of these seed funds in spurring external awards. This $210,000 institutional investment is in addition to ongoing system-wide internal research competitions through the President’s Science and Technology Initiative and the Healey Endowment Fund.

02 Annual Report 2014 | RESEARCH


New personnel in key research support areas u

e welcomed a new Director in the Office of Research Administration (ORA), W Elena Glatman, who brings a wealth of managerial and financial compliance experience from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Brown University. The name ORA was changed to Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA) to reflect the wide range of projects funded by external sponsors. Ms. Glatman is a strong advocate for open communication, ongoing education and customer service.

We also retained D. Glass Associates, led by Dr. David Glass, whose extensive experience in technology transfer will assist the University in identifying and protecting faculty inventions and guiding faculty through the patent and licensing process. u

u

The newly created Office of Research Development will work with faculty to develop long-term strategies to increase external funding and interdisciplinary research. Mary Hensel has moved from SPA to Research Development to staff this initiative.

Research scholarship innovation priorities UMASSDTRANSFORM2020 and initial RSI committee meetings focused on: • B  alancing research workload given teaching, advising, and service commitments of faculty members. • U  se of internal funding programs to support early research and research infrastructure.

• H  eightened recognition of faculty members’ RSI achievements and celebration of research on campus. • Increased  support for identifying funding opportunities. • B  uilding research teams with University collaborators.

• B  roadening sponsorship beyond Federal awards. My thanks to all who engage in vital and vibrant research at UMass Dartmouth and make this a strong research, innovation, and scholarship community. Sincerely

Louis Goodman, Ph.D. Interim Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development

12. Lloyd-Richardson, E. E., Stanton, C. A.,

Aminda O’Hare Professor, Psychology

EXPLORING THE INTERSECTION OF COGNITION AND EMOTION Do emotions help or hinder our ability to make decisions? Dr. Aminda O’Hare is researching this question in the CAPES Lab, one of the Psychology Department’s electroencephalography (EEG) facilities. Using electrical sensors to track brain activity, she assesses her subjects’ abilities to stay focused on a task when emotion is present and when it’s not. While they are performing tasks, O’Hare records the nuances of each subject’s responses to words that have emotional content, such as “hatred” or “horror.” O’Hare’s view is that “emotions can brighten your attention.” O’Hare runs multiple trials on each subject, takes the average of the electrical activity across all trials, and establishes event related potentials (ERPs). Using the ERPs, she can pinpoint at what stage emotion might be changing cognitive processing. Improved understanding of the intersections of cognition and emotion could have very practical applications, O’Hare said, for example, the potential for the military to gauge a soldier’s ability to make decisions in extremely stressful situations.

Dr. Amit Tandon of the UMass Dartmouth College of Engineering and Dr. Amala Mahadevan of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are leading a first-ofits-kind U.S.-India oceanographic research team to improve the forecasting of monsoon and extreme weather events across the Indian subcontinent.

Research Topic: Hoover Dam Historic 3-D

“The monsoon has two faces,” said Dr. Tandon. “It can be a major destructive force, and yet most of the country’s agriculture depends on the timing and amount of the monsoon rains. A fluctuation of just 10 percent from the seasonal norm is the difference between a ‘deficient’ and an ‘excessive’ monsoon.” The U.S. Office of Naval Research is funding the participating U.S. scientists and contributing the resources of the R / V Roger Revelle. Dr. Frank Herr of the Office of Naval Research noted, “The visit of this U.S. oceanographic research ship to India is an important moment in the history of scientific partnership between our two countries. We hope to grow lasting scientific cooperation between our nations and acquire the knowledge to better forecast the initiation of the annual monsoons.”

EXCELLENCE IN RESEARCH

UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) supports the following grants: •

Small research grants provide up to $500 per student to support research. 24 grants were given out in the spring and 32 in the fall of this year.

Walaa Mogawer

Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering

CREATING NEW PAVEMENT FROM OLD MATERIALS The asphalt producing industry is working to conserve natural resources, produce environmentally friendly mixtures, and keep costs down. Dr. Walaa Mogawer, with more than 20 years of experience in paving technology, is addressing these challenges by developing pavement mixtures that include recycled materials. Mogawer received $249,785 from the New England Transportation Consortium for research on “Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) Mixture Containing Recycled Asphalt Shingles” to advance technologies that use readily available recycled materials such as recycled asphalt shingles and reclaimed asphalt pavements in the construction of new paving materials. In 2010, the recycling of asphalt pavements and asphalt shingles conserved 20.5 million barrels of asphalt binder. By recycling the nearly 10 million tons of shingle that currently go into U.S. landfills, the U.S. could save $2.5 billion worth of asphalt each year. Mogawer is the Director of the UMass Dartmouth Highway Sustainability Research Center (HSRC), and has served as principal investigator on several research projects funded by MassHighway, New England Transportation Consortium (NETC), and National Science Foundation (NSF).

Travel grants provide up to $500 for travel during the year to present the results of research at conferences. 11 students traveled in AY 2014.

Summer stipends. 13 awards up to $4,000 were made in 2014 to support student research with faculty mentors over the summer. In addition, the OUR offered on-campus housing and up to $500 for research materials.

CAPSTONE PROJECTS 2014 Mechanical Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering, College of Engineering The projects provide students with diverse industry experience and offer companies innovative ideas and solutions. Some of the projects are highlighted below: Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Green Line Wheelchair Ramp The MBTA team designed a manually operated wheelchair ramp to be retrofitted into the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s 96 Green Line cars in Boston. The existing wheelchair ramp retracts under the subway car and is often jammed by stones, sand, road grit, ice, and snow.

Dr. Changshen Chen is a coastal oceanographer working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to develop and operate a national network of forecast systems that predict coastal ocean systems, including water levels, salinity, currents, temperatures, and tides and currents. Chen is the leader of the Marine Ecosystem Dynamics Modeling Research Laboratory, which has developed an innovative unstructured grid, finite-volume coastal ocean model (FVCOM) for the ocean community. This modeling technology has been in development for over a decade with collaborators from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and is at the core of NOAA’s Northeast Coastal Ocean Forecast System (NECOFS), an integrated atmosphere-ocean model system. Chen’s FVCOM is also central to improved NOAA forecast systems in the Gulf of Mexico. The northwest Gulf of Mexico Operational Forecast System (NWGOFS) and the northeast Gulf of Mexico (NEGOFS) became operational on September 16, 2014, with new features by FVCOM developers that significantly benefit a range of maritime activities, including commercial and recreational boating, fishing and sailing, shipment and vessel transit planning, storm tides, hazardous material tracking, and Search and Rescue.
