TACNY John Edson Sweet Lecture Series – Tour Of The Rock Cut Road Waste-To-Energy Facility

Tuesday, 10 May 2016, 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.


Tour begins at 4pm (note this is not the same time as typical Sweet Lectures). Please RSVP by mailing sweet.lecture@tacny.org. Thank you.

The local Waste-to-Energy Facility, just off of Route I-481 in Jamesville, is a key component of OCRRA’s solid waste management system. This Facility processes all of the community’s non-recyclable trash, while also:

* generating enough electricity for 25,000 – 30,000 households

* reducing the volume of material that needs to be landfilled by 90%.

We will walk through the facility and see the various aspects of the waste to energy process.

Presenter:

2016feb24_bayDr. John S. Bay is the Executive Director of the Cyber Research Institute (CRI), in Rome, NY. The CRI is a not-for-profit research company chartered by the State of New York in 2012 to perform research and advanced technology outreach for the benefit of the public.

Dr. Bay received his Ph.D. In electrical engineering from The Ohio State University in 1988. From 1988 to 1999, he was a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), specializing in control theory and robotics. In 1999, be became an Engineering Fellow at the Raytheon Company, leading C4ISR research projects. In 2001, he transitioned to the federal government as a Program Manager at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), where lead programs in embedded systems, command-and-control, and autonomous vehicles until 2005. From 2005 until 2009, he was Chief Scientist of the Air Force Research Laboratory, Information Directorate, in Rome, NY, overseeing all aspects of the Directorate’s C4I technology development mission. In 2009, he returned to industry as Sr. Vice President and Chief Scientist at Assured Information Security (AIS), before becoming the Executive Director of the Cyber Research Institute in 2014.

Dr. Bay is a Fellow of the IEEE for his contributions to embedded systems, winner of an IEEE Computer Society Technical Achievement Award, recipient of the Office of the Secretary of Defense Medal for Exceptional Public Service, and recipient of the HKN C. Holmes MacDonald award for teaching.

Professor-Melissa-Green-in-Lab_CropProfessor Melissa Green’s research interests include vortex-dominated wakes generated by swimming offlying of animals and the coherent structure composition of reacting and non-reacting turbulent flow fields. Increased understanding of how these flows are organized can lead to advances in basic research, model development for flow simulation, dynamics and control plus improvements in existing technology. In order to investigate these flows, Dr. Green integrates quantitative and qualitative experimental techniques with comprehensive data analysis such as Lagrangian coherent structures identification.

Green earned her Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University, and her BS in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. Prior to joining the faculty of Syracuse University in 2012, Professor Green was an NRC Postdoctoral Research Associate at the US Naval Research Laboratory. In 2014, she was the recipient of the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research Young Investigator Award.
