In a new study, co-authored by Moftakhari Rostamkhani, researchers at U.C. Irvine find that the cost of repeated nuisance floods over time can be similar if not higher than the damage done by a storm or hurricane.
“The current standard of care in respiration monitoring is a pulmonary function test that's often difficult to perform and limited in terms of the snapshot it provides of a patient's respiratory health—meaning problems can sometimes be missed,” Michael Chu, UCI graduate student researcher in biomedical engineering and lead author of the study, said in a statement. “Our new stretch sensors allow users to walk around and go about their lives while vital information on the health of their lungs is being collected.”

In case of a Fire, pull the nearest Fire Alarm handle; call 911, and evacuate your space following the instructions of your Floor Warden and Building Coordinator. The listing below identifies the General Safety Condition. There is a Primary Contact to whom you should immediately report the condition, and the there is a follow up contact who will follow up to mitigate the unsafe condition.
The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering anticipates openings for all levels of the Specialist series. Applications are being sought from graduates with backgrounds in mechanical or aerospace engineering.
Applicants must have a proven track record of research. Positions are dependent on extramural funding and research contracts of individual principal Investigators. The positions may be full- or part-time and may be without salary. Dependent upon extramural funding, salary is commensurate with experience.
Developing Human Connections to Reach the Top 25 by 2025
We are at a critical moment in the history of the Samueli School of Engineering at UC Irvine. The campus is under a mandate to grow and plans a major buildout over the next decade. Our engineering school plays a vital role in this expansion. We see it as an opportunity to strengthen our existing programs and develop initiatives that raise our national profile, elevating us to the top 25 by 2025.
