Parneet Kaur Wins Prestigious Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship

ECE PhD student Parneet Kaur has been selected for the prestigious Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship.

Parneet's PhD research advised by Prof. Kristin Dana is based on computational skin texture models with applications in quantitative dermatology and telemedicine.

She is developing advanced method of handling multiview high dimensional data by using computational appearance to supervise clustering of the bacteria genetic signature.

Prof. Vishal Patel receives 2016 ONR YIP

We are pleased to announce that ECE Assistant Professor Vishal Patel is recipient of the 2016 Young Investigator Program (YIP) Award.

The goal of Dr. Patel’s project is to develop robust and efficient methods for learning structured representations of multimodal data. In particular, he will develop methods for multimodal metric learning and multimodal data fusion based on sparse and low-rank representations.

RUMD Loop Team advances to the Build round in the Hyperloop SpaceX Competition

On January 29-30, 2016 SpaceX hosted Hyperloop Pod Competition Design at Texas A&M University. Four Computer Engineering Department students took part in the competition as part of the combined Rutgers/MaryIand (RUMD Loop Team). Michael Feinstein (Senior), Shreyas Hirday (Junior, team leader), Cedric Blake (Junior), Dominic Ok (Junior) helped design a robust, efficient design for a pod to be used in a Hyperloop tube, a low pressure tube that transports people at very high speeds, up to 215 mph. Specifically, they handled designing the computer systems and software for the pod.

Meet Professor Anand Sarwate and his students

LabTV is an online hub where people, labs, and organizations engaged in medical research come together to tell their stories. LabTV has filmed hundreds of medical researchers at dozens of institutions across the United States including many universities and the National Institutes of Health.

LabTV interviewed Prof. Anand Sarwate and the students in his group. Please click on the photo above or the following link to see the interview.
