After two years, ECE Research Day was finally back on Friday, December 16 and it was a great success. This event was an excellent opportunity for ECE students and ECE PostDoc Associates to present their research projects, share their creative ideas, and network with their peers. The 52 posters were presented by graduate and undergraduate students (including summer research, internships, and co-ops), covering a diverse range of research topics. Also, five Fall 2022 Capstone teams had a chance to showcase their senior design project:

ECE Professor Shriram Ramanathan and collaborators (Dr. C. Grienberger, Brandeis) have been awarded a new AFOSR grant on 'Plasticity in the mammalian brain and emulation in oxide devices’. The total obligated amount is $900K/ 3 yrs (Rutgers share: $390K). This project is related to understanding the fundamental mechanisms of plasticity in animal brains and their emulation in electronic devices. Longer term goal will be to advance physical models based on bio-plausible plasticity that could be useful to AI algorithms.   Congratulations to Shriram!
