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. […]

ESE Seminar: “2D Materials for Unconventional Devices: From Flexible/Wearable Tattoo Sensors to Monolayer Memory”

Abstract: This talk will present our latest research adventures on 2D nanomaterials towards greater scientific understanding and advanced engineering applications. In particular the talk will highlight our work on flexible electronics, zero-power devices, monolayer memory (atomristors), non-volatile RF switches, and wearable tattoo sensors. Non-volatile memory devices based on 2D materials are an application of defects […]

ESE Faculty Hosted Talk: “Deep Learned Optical Multiplexing for Microscopy”

Abstract: Fourier ptychographic microscopy is a technique that achieves a high space-bandwidth product, i.e. high resolution and high field-of-view. In Fourier ptychographic microscopy, variable illumination patterns are used to collect multiple low-resolution images. These low-resolution images are then computationally combined to create an image with resolution exceeding that of any single image from the microscope. […]

ESE Seminar: “AI and Intelligent IC/Accelerator Design: A Synergistic Approach”

The recent artificial intelligence (AI) boom has been largely driven by three confluence forces: algorithms, big data, and computing power enabled by modern integrated circuits (ICs) including specialized AI accelerators. In this talk, I will present a synergistic approach on AI and intelligent IC/accelerator designs with two main themes, AI for IC and IC for […]

ESE & Statistics Seminar: “Large Neural Networks: Insights from Linearized Models”

Abstract: Modern machine learning models, and in particular multilayer neural networks, exhibit a broad range of puzzling phenomena. Their training requires to minimize a highly non-convex high-dimensional cost function, and yet it is efficiently addressed using simple gradient descent (GD) or stochastic gradient descent (SGD) algorithms. This model contains more parameters than the number of […]

MEAM Seminar: “Engineering Microdevices Using Atomic Layer Deposition and Electrowetting”

This talk will cover 1) devices created one atomic layer at a time and 2) electrowetting optical elements. Atomic layer deposition (ALD) and Atomic Layer Etching (ALE) are self-limiting processes that enable accurate atomic-scale thickness control either through deposition or etching of various materials. We are developing novel manufacturing processes that study how ALD materials […]

“Compressive Sensing: From Algorithms to Circuits”

Compressive Sensing is an acquisition technique which relies on the sparsity of the underlying signals, to enable sampling below the classical Nyquist rate. To do so, the signals must be acquired in an incoherent way with respect to the sparsity basis, which is classically obtained in practice by acquiring the signal through projection on a […]
