Professor Amar Flood
Professor Flood's areas of research include Molecular Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The long-term goal of his research programs, is to integrate sensing, logic, and actuation together in order to demonstrate autonomous action from a molecular robotics system by taking natural concepts and applying them to artificial systems. This research can lead to the development of applications ranging from molecular electronics to mechanical engineered systems.
In addition to the significant evidence that CALM is effective, students also perceive that CALM aids them in learning the material. Midway through the first semester of CALM's use, we also collected student opinions about their experience with CALM (297 respondents). Of all the students taking the survey, 73% described CALM as either “extremely” or “very useful” in helping them learn the material presented in the course; only 8% felt was only “slightly useful” or “not useful at all”.
