Schulich Leader Emma Mogus showcases invention on Jimmy Fallon

September 12, 2017

Emma Mogus, 2016 Schulich Leader, and physics student, recently appeared on an episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. She appeared on a recurrent segment called "Fallonventions," which showcases the "best and brightest" child and teen inventors from across North America.

Mogus' invention, called the TiC (Tongue-Interface-Communication) allows people to direct a computer mouse with their tongue. It allows those with ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, and mobility issues to easily navigate a computer.

Mogus became familiar with McMaster while working as a researcher during the summer in the Engineering Physics Department with Dr. Ayse Turak. Her work focused in Organic Photovoltaics, fabricating solar cells and environmental testing chambers, and writing manuals.

Launched in 2012, the Schulich Leader Scholarships program is a $100-million scholarship fund that supports 50 undergraduates each year in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
