Materials Science & Engineering

“Even at a young age, I was interested in mathematics and science. Math and science have revolutionized the world we live in today and always will with the new technology that is constantly being invented. I want to be a part of it because it is fascinating to build something from nothing, especially when the end result can benefit other people.”

Students Create an App to Diagnose Malaria

A mosquito-blasting laser gun is a sensible weapon for fighting malaria — but a smartphone? Turns out that high-def touchscreen might be good for more than video chatting and slinging angry birds.

Five graduate students have designed a smartphone app for the 2011 Imagine Cup that will allow doctors to quickly and accurately diagnose malaria. It works by analyzing data from the phone’s camera – which has been outfitted with a microscopic lens – to determine whether malarial parasites are present in blood samples.
