Two of Professor Amin Arbabian's graduate students, Hao Nan and Miaad Aliroteh, recently won 2014 Qualcomm Innovation Fellowships for their "innovation" titled, "Biometric Authentication with 3D Map of Blood Vessels Using Novel Microwave Imaging."

Out of 137 submitted proposals from 18 schools, Qualcomm first selected 34 finalists (an acceptance rate of 24.8 percent). The judges then had the difficult task of selecting the nine winning teams (acceptance rate: 6.6 percent) who were each awarded a $100,000 Fellowship.
