ECE PhD Graduate Bo Li wins 2017 Robert T. Hill Memorial Best Dissertation Award from IEEE Aerospace and Electronics Systems Society

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). 

ECE Colloquium - Dr. Negar Tavassolian, Stevens Institute of Technology

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.

Professor Yanyong Zhang Elevated to IEEE Fellow

 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!
