ESE Seminar: “Data-driven Decision Making and Estimation in CPS/IoT Networks”

The modern instantiation of a sensor network is a cyberphysical (CPS) system where CPS subsystems can be interconnected by a shared communication network of limited bandwidth. A common problem in CPS networks is the sensing and communication of spatio-temporal signals. However, there are fundamental differences between estimation (sensing) and communication. For example, the type of […]

ESE Grace Hopper Lecture: “Emerging Non-Volatile Ferroelectric Memory”

Abstract The last decade has seen a remarkable shift in usage and value of semiconductor memory technologies. These changes are driven by the elevation of four particular target applications –(1) mobile multi-media applications, (2) explosive growth in the sheer volume of data that is being created and stored, (3) emphasis from the individual components to […]

ESE PhD Defense: “Orbital angular momentum microlasers: From the first demonstration to ultrafast tunability”

Orbital angular momentum (OAM) carried by structured vortex light establishes a new information dimension, thereby promising high capacity optical communication and high performance computation in both classical and quantum regimes. Meanwhile, laser is the key driver in the field of optics and photonics over other photonic components. Since its discovery, laser technology has demonstrated strong […]

ESE Seminar: “Evolutionary Adaptations and Spreading Processes in Complex Networks”

A common theme among many models for spreading processes in networks is the assumption that the propagating object (e.g., a pathogen, in the context of infectious disease propagation, or a piece of information, in the context of information propagation) is transferred across network nodes without going through any modification. However, in real-life spreading processes, pathogens […]

MEAM Seminar: “Aluminum Scandium Nitride Microdevices for Next Generation Nonvolatile Memory and Microelectromechanical Systems”

Aluminum Nitride (AlN) is a well-established thin film piezoelectric material. AlN bulk acoustic wave (BAW) radio frequency (RF) filters were one of the key innovations that enabled the 3G and 4G smart phone revolution. Recently, the substitutional doping of scandium (Sc) for aluminum (Al) to form aluminum scandium nitride (AlScN) has been studied to significantly […]

ESE Thesis Defense: “Constrained Learning and Inference”

Learning is a core component of the information processing and autonomous systems upon which we increasingly rely on to select job applicants, analyze medical data, and drive cars. As these systems become ubiquitous, so does the need to curtail their behavior. Left untethered, they are susceptible to tampering (adversarial examples) and prone to prejudiced and […]

ESE Seminar: “Electrical Digestive Engineering”

Gastrointestinal (GI) problems are the second leading cause for missing work or school after the common cold, giving rise to 10 percent of the reasons a patient visits their physician and costing $142 billion annually.  Although obstructions and infections are easy to diagnose, more than half of GI disorders involve abnormal functioning of the GI […]

ESE Seminar: “Skin Interfaced Wearable Sweat Biosensors”

Abstract: The rising research interest in personalized medicine promises to revolutionize traditional medical practices. This presents a tremendous opportunity for developing wearable devices toward predictive analytics and treatment. In this talk, I will introduce our recent advances in developing fully-integrated skin-interfaced flexible biosensors for non-invasive molecular analysis. Such wearable biosensors can continuously, selectively, and accurately […]
