Current Research Projects

  • Transforming Education Using Simulated Real-World Inspired Industry Projects

    Transforming Online and On-Campus Education through Simulated Real-World Inspired Industry Projects

    The objective of this project is to transform online and on-campus education through real-world inspired virtual industry projects. The unique advantage of the proposed technology is that students can study the system by navigating through the model as it is running using any typical personal computer or laptop but also via a virtual reality (VR) headset (if available) for enhanced immersive experience. Collaborators: Dr. Ashkan Negahban and Dr. Omar Ashour. This project has been funded by National Science Foundation (ECR: 2000599) and Penn State Strategic Initiative.

  • AR Warehouse

    Developing Virtual Warehouses Using Augmented Reality

    We develop virtual warehouses using augmented reality to test different warehouse layouts in a real world environment.

  • Opioid Overdose Database

    Developing An Opioid Overdose Database Based on Montgomery County Coroner Office Records

    We are developing a highly specialized database to record and analyze opioid overdoses that happened between 2000-present. Collaborators: Dr. Glenn Sterner and Dr. Oren Gur

    This project has been funded by Penn State Abington Chancellor’s Grant, Penn State Social Science Research Institute, and Penn State Justice Center for Research.

  • Non-traditional Designs for Order Picking Warehouses

    We optimize warehouse layouts for different order picking operations using in-house developed simulation and optimization techniques

    Order picking warehouse layouts have been the same for the last sixty years. We analyze if there are better layouts for order picking operations using simulation and optimization techniques.

Past Research Projects

  • RT 159: Agile Systems Engineering Management

    Modeling Agent Based Simulations for Systems Engineering Management

    Responsible for enhancing a domain-specific language and agent based simulation model for systems engineering
    Funded by Office of the Secretary of Defense/National Security Agency

  • A Model-Driven Generative Domain Architecture for Simulation Experiment Lifecycle Management and Systems Optimization

    Developing Domain Specific Optimization Languages for Experiment Management

    We demonstrated two heuristic optimization languages to optimize a quadcopter Simulink model for certain control parameters only using domain specific language without any knowledge in Java.
