A mathematical model for the evaporation of micro- and nano-sized solution droplets is developed. This model is used to predict whether the particles produced by spray drying and pyrolysis are fully filled or hollow. The model includes the non-continuum effects on the droplet evaporation. This is achieved by combining an interpolation formula based on the(More)
We present SocialSense, a collaborative smartphone based speaker and mood identification and reporting system that uses a user's voice to detect and log his/her speaking and mood episodes. SocialSense collaboratively works with other phones that are running the app present in the vicinity to periodically send/receive speaking and mood vectors to/from other(More)
As app based paradigms are becoming popular, millions of apps are developed from many domains including energy, health, security, and entertainment. The US FDA expects that there will be 500 million smart phone users downloading healthcare related apps by 2015. Many of these apps are Cyber-Physical System (CPS) apps. In addition to sensing, communication,(More)
Currently proven methods that are used to obtain devices with high-quality graphene on silicon wafers involve the transfer of graphene flakes from a growth substrate, resulting in fundamental limitations for large-scale device fabrication. Moreover, the complex three-dimensional structures of interest for microelectromechanical and nanoelectromechanical(More)
We develop solutions to various challenges in different stages of the processing pipeline of a real time indoor distant speech emotion recognition system to reduce the discrepancy between training and test conditions for distant emotion recognition. We use a novel combination of distorted feature elimination, classifier optimization, several signal cleaning(More)
We designed a nickel-assisted process to obtain graphene with sheet resistance as low as 80 Ω square(-1) from silicon carbide films on Si wafers with highly enhanced surface area. The silicon carbide film acts as both a template and source of graphitic carbon, while, simultaneously, the nickel induces porosity on the surface of the film by forming silicides(More)
Distant emotion recognition (DER) extends the application of speech emotion recognition to the very challenging situation that is determined by variable speaker to microphone distances. The performance of conventional emotion recognition systems degrades dramatically as soon as the microphone is moved away from the mouth of the speaker. This is due to a(More)
