ESE Seminar: “Enabling the SmartGrid with IoT Sensors and Edge-Cloud Analytics”

Abstract: Wireless sensors and edge-cloud analytics have the potential to gather and process vast amounts of data about the physical world, offering radical new insights about everything from critical infrastructure to interpersonal interactions. But designing, deploying, and operating geographically-distributed systems consisting a hierarchy of sensing, storage, compute, and communication elements raises interesting new challenges across […]

ESE Seminar: “Metasurface Computational Imaging”

Modern image sensors consist of systems of cascaded and bulky spherical optics for imaging with minimal aberrations. While these systems provide high-quality images, the improved functionality comes at the cost of increased size and weight. One route to reduce a system’s complexity is via computational imaging, in which much of the aberration correction and functionality […]

Sigma Aldrich Lecture: “Epitaxy by Design: Epitaxial Growth of Dissimilar Materials”

Abstract:   The ability to integrate dissimilar materials with different crystal structures and properties enables heterostructures to be developed with new functionality well beyond the normal band gap engineering offered by semiconductor heterostructures. The combination of metals, semiconductors, insulators, magnetic, piezoelectric, structural and phase change materials offers the potential for nearly limitless control of device properties. […]

ESE Seminar: “Solid-State Spin-Photon Interfaces: Old Friends & New”

Abstract : Optically active spins in solids offer exciting opportunities as scalable and feasible quantum-optical devices. Numerous material platforms including diamond, semiconductors, and atomically thin 2d materials are under investigation, where each platform brings some advantages of control and feasibility along with other challenges. The inherently mesoscopic nature of solid-state platforms leads to a multitude of […]

ESE Doctoral Dissertation Defense: “IMU-Based State Estimation and Control of Quadrotors Leveraging Aerodynamic Effects”

Abstract: Quadrotors and multirotors in general are common in many inspection and surveillance applications. For these applications, visual-inertial odometry is a common way to localize the vehicles and observe the environment. However, unlike with wheeled mobile robots, quadrotor localization algorithms often do not use knowledge of the control inputs and the full vehicle dynamics as […]

ESE Seminar: “Foundations of Deep Learning and Applications in Medicine”

Abstract: Recent advances in machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and robotics, offer a tremendous opportunity to transform medicine, from reactive and hospital centered to proactive and patient-centered. To fulfill this promise, new methods need to be developed which are more interpretable, can handle data at multiple spatial and temporal scales, and are robust […]

ESE Seminar: “Information Security for the Connected World”

Abstract: An all-wireless vision connecting billions of devices is finally in sight with the Internet-of-Everything paradigm. This vision entails large networks with dynamic connectivity, ad hoc formation and heterogeneous nodes. Central to be able to integrate all our lives to this massive virtual domain is security and privacy of the information that flows through it. […]
