The third and final smart living networking session for this semester will be held 3-4:30 p.m. Monday, April 1, in the Missouri-Ozark Room of the Havener Center. Come listen to a smart living hire and those who have received smart living seed funding to learn about research in the smart living area. There are some spots left if you would like to pitch your idea for smart living.

Smart living hires (out of five total):
• Dr. Daniel Shank, assistant professor of psychological science

Seed funding recipients (out of seven):
• Dr. Chang-Soo Kim, professor of electrical and computer engineering, and Dr. William Stoecker, a local dermatologist and adjunct assistant professor of medicine, received seed funding for their project titled “Smart Dressing and Point-of-care Instrumentation Toward Wound Prevention by Telemedicine.”
• Dr. Yun Seong Song, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, and Dr. Devin Burns, assistant professor of psychological science, received seed funding for their project titled “Light-touch Based Virtual Cane for Balance Assistance During Walking.”

Pitch Presenters: 
• Stephane Menand, assistant director of energy and environment research

If you would like to be a presenter, please contact Dr. Nancy Stone, professor of psychological science, at and let her know when you can present. If you can present Monday, April 1, please let Nancy know by Wednesday, March 27. Organizers hope to have two or three pitches.

As a pitch presenter, you will have two minutes and up to two slides to share who you are, your research focus or need and your resources or resource availability.

For example, slide No. 1 can include who you are (research ideas, proposals or projects related to smart living, expertise areas, current funding or resources available). Slide No. 2 can detail what you need to move forward (collaborators with specific skills, knowledge or perspective; technology, lab or research access).

Following the presentations will be an opportunity to socialize and further discuss ways to build smart living research teams. Snacks will be provided.
