Halderman says Michigan’s approach to election processes and equipment makes it practically “impossible for any computerized attack to interfere with.” Halderman is a professor of electrical engineering and computer science.
In an op-ed for Bridge, Todd Allen argues it is a mistake to close a carbon-free nuclear plant and replace it with fossil fuels. Allen is the Glenn F. and Gladys H. Knoll Department Chair of Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences.
Gregory Keoleian says that while electricity is a significant cost to manufacture EV batteries, lithium, cobalt and battery components are much more expensive. Keoleian is a professor of civil and environmental engineering.
Kevin Field says their AR method can also be applied to energy, transportation and biomedical sectors. Field is an associate professor of nuclear engineering and radiological sciences.
