Cheng receives NSF EPSCoR Grant

Dr. Cheng ChengDr. Cheng Cheng, assistant professor of engineering and technology management, has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Kentucky Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Grant in the amount of $50,000 to conduct research. 
His project, “An Alternating Current Electrokinetics Based Low-cost Wireless Sensing Platform for Water Quality Monitoring in the Distribution Network,” aims to create a sensing platform that will realize low-cost and real-time monitoring of water quality. It will be a universal monitor for water quality monitoring and rapid contaminant detection.
Cheng’s project aims to develop an innovative sensing platform for real-time water quality monitoring that is low-cost, reliable and will satisfy the growing need to monitor and rapidly detect contaminants in water. This study will serve as a startup project that aims at initializing biosensor and bioelectronics research at Morehead State University.  
This project will integrate research and teaching in the classroom. The research results will benefit the community as well as Undergraduate Research Fellowship and graduate students’ theses by enabling them to develop research skills and advanced technological competencies.  
It will also prepare undergraduate and graduate students with the skills required to create future research opportunities in the Department of Engineering and Technology Management.
