On this episode, I welcome Reza K. Amineh, assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New York Institute of Technology. He and a colleague won more than $350,000 to develop new imaging techniques that will enhance testing of composite materials in oil-and-gas pipelines.
Professor Amnieh has been working on this project since 2017 with support from internal NYIT grants, which paid for the launch of their Applied Electromagnetics Research Lab (AEMRL).
Their aim is to produce a prototype that can conduct fast and reliable tests of composite materials in various applications. If successful, this technology will significantly reduce costs and increase system safety for oil and gas extraction, urban infrastructure, and other operations that rely on pipelines.
We'll be discussing this project on this episode.
