WVU Tech Facultivities: October 2016 Edition

WVU Tech’s faculty members are dedicated to the advancement of the fields they teach. Outside of the classroom, they’re researchers, writers, presenters, go-to experts and road warriors who share their passion for learning with the world.

Here’s what our faculty members have been up to:

Dr. Fahad Gill (Economics) published “Earnings disadvantage of immigrants: are we comparing apples to apples?” in Migration Letters.

Dr. Houbing Song (Electrical and Computer Engineering) gave an invited talk on September 30 to graduate students in the Department of Computer Science at the George Washington University (GWU). He collaborated on and published four peer-reviewed journal papers in  IEEE Internet of Things JournalComputers & Electrical Engineering and  KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems. He also published a textbook entitled “Cyber-Physical Systems: Foundations, Principles and Applications.” In December, Dr. Song will serve as the technical program committee chair of the fifth IEEE CCSNA workshop in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Mark Wilson (Economics) presented a paper, “West Virginia’s Nobel Laureates: Pearl Buck and John Nash,” at the  Pearl Buck Gateway Conference at WVU in September.

Dr. Richard Squire (Chemistry) collaborated on an article, “The B850/B875 Photosynthetic Complex Ground and Excited State are Both Coherent,” which was recently published in the Los Alamos Archives, an extension of the Cornell University Library system.
