Michael Hamilton
Responding to Re-aerosolization Risk in the Wake of a Wide-area Anthrax Release
Michael is a Master’s student in the Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering who recently contributed to a paper which attempts to determine the most appropriate emergency response strategies following a hypothetical bioterrorism attack in a major city like Philadelphia. Using a release of Bacillus anthracis (the causative agent of anthrax) as an example, he and his team have constructed a probability model and applied principles of benefit-cost analysis to derive estimates of the outcomes associated with different response strategies. The goal of this research is to help inform emergency response policies related to such an event.

Chung Wong
Predicting NFL Outcomes Using Neural Network
Utilizing neural network, Chung and his team create a prediction model of NFL outcomes using only five statistical categories. They then compare their result against the advanced AccuScore system. Their model not only significantly reduces the amount of data needed for predictions but also produces results comparable with AccuScore.

Kimberly Oelschlager
Understanding the Clinical Triad of Polytrauma in Military Combat Veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom
This project concerns the diagnosis in today’s veterans or TBU, PTSD, and chronic pain syndromes that manifests itself as headaches. It looks at the mechanism of injuries such as a blast injury and how military personnel can receive a brain injury without any visible tissue trauma. This project also looks at the diagnosis and management regimen supported by evidence based medicine that the VA wants medical providers to utilize. The idea of the project is to educate civilian provider’s specifically mid-level practitioners such as PA/NP who will bear the brunt of taking care of our veterans.
