Spring Semester Begins
Bo Li, a recent PhD graduate (2017) of the Rutgers Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department, has won the 2017 Robert T. Hill Memorial Best Dissertation Award, given by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Aerospace and Electronics Systems Society (AESS).
Abstract: Electromagnetic waves have been employed in various settings for biological and medical applications. The interaction of electromagnetic fields with biological systems can be extremely beneficial and lead to novel medical applications. In the first part of this talk, I will discuss the use of millimeter-wave imaging technology for the delineation of skin tissues and early detection of skin cancer. Millimeter-wave imaging is a relatively established technology which is mainly employed in security screening and non-destructive testing systems.
The IEEE Board of Directors, at its November 2017 meeting, elevated Professor Yanyong Zhang to IEEE Fellow, effective 1 January 2018, with the following citation:
"for contributions to robust and efficient large-scale sensor networks".
Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for elevation to IEEE Fellow. Less than 0.1% of voting members are selected annually for this member grade elevation.
Congratulations on this outstanding recognition of professional achievement, Yanyong!
ECE PhD student Mehdi Rahmati and Professor Dario Pompili received the Best Paper Award at the IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad hoc and Sensor Systems (MASS-2017). Their paper titled “SSFB: Signal-Space-Frequency Beamforming for Underwater Acoustic Video Transmission” was presented at the conference which was held in Orlando, FL, on October 22-25, 2017.
Good Vibrations: Smart Access to Homes and Cars Using Fingers
“Good, good, good, good vibrations” goes the catchy Beach Boys song, a big hit in 1966 and beyond.
On Thursday, November 2nd, HKN will be hosting a tutoring night and study session for all ECE undergrads to help prepare for the second round of midterms. The event will be held from 7pm to 9pm in EE203. Come out to study or just to get some homework done! Pizza will be provided!
