Dr. Richard Chiou is Associate Professor within the Engineering Technology Department at Drexel University, Philadelphia, USA. He received his Ph.D. degree in the G.W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. His educational background is in manufacturing with an emphasis on mechatronics. In addition to his many years of industrial experience, he has taught many different engineering and technology courses at undergraduate and graduate levels. His tremendous research experience in manufacturing includes environmentally conscious manufacturing, Internet based robotics, and Web based quality. In the past years, he has been involved in sustainable manufacturing for maximizing energy and material recovery while minimizing environmental impact.
I am a fine young lady in the field of robotics, machine learning, and computer vision. Currently, I am a graduate student at Drexel University, majoring in systems (Electrical Engineering) and a minor in Computer Science. I am working as a Research Assistant in the Engineering Technology department at Drexel. I am currently working on improving ways of improving engineering education with Virtual Reality techniques. I am working with Advisor to create two upcoming courses at Drexel - Advanced Robotics course and Virtual Reality course. Persevering and hard-working are the best adjectives to describe me. I wish to work in the interdisciplinary field of robotics with mechanical, medical and electrical. I have hands-on experience with the number of medium to large-scale projects and work opportunities such as "Gesture controlled semi-humanoid robot", "Creating an outfit using fashion images using machine learning", "Car detection with SVM and HOG", "Convolutional Neural Network for retinal vessel segmentation using Keras library with TensorFlow backend on python and OpenCV on Ubuntu environment to obtain segmentation", "Design of pick and place model", etc. That research was published in the IEEE. I am looking for exciting work or research opportunities in my interested areas. When I am not working or studying, I like to explore with the telescope, read books, write on my blog and practice some dance routine.

Michael Mauk is Assistant Professor in Drexel University's Engineering Technology program.
Irina Ciobanescu Husanu, Ph. D. is Assistant Clinical Professor with Drexel University, Engineering Technology program. Her area of expertise is in thermo-fluid sciences with applications in micro-combustion, fuel cells, green fuels and plasma assisted combustion. She has prior industrial experience in aerospace engineering that encompasses both theoretical analysis and experimental investigations such as designing and testing of propulsion systems including design and development of pilot testing facility, mechanical instrumentation, and industrial applications of aircraft engines. Also, in the past 10 years she gained experience in teaching ME and ET courses in both quality control and quality assurance areas as well as in thermal-fluid, energy conversion and mechanical areas from various levels of instruction and addressed to a broad spectrum of students, from freshmen to seniors, from high school graduates to adult learners. She also has extended experience in curriculum development. Dr Husanu developed laboratory activities for Measurement and Instrumentation course as well as for quality control undergraduate and graduate courses in ET Masters program. Also, she introduced the first experiential activity for Applied Mechanics courses. She is coordinator and advisor for capstone projects for Engineering Technology.
