2018 REU Seminar Series, #5

Topic: 
Research-to-Startup-to-Facebook
Abstract / Description: 

Saara Khan earned a PhD in Electrical Engineering at Stanford working on optical manipulation of dielectric particles under Professor Audrey Bowden and Olav Solgaard. She subsequently founded a sensors AI company targeted for self-driving cars, a venture-backed company developing advanced sensing platforms. After her startup, Saara now works as a Hardware Engineer at Facebook working on next generation Virtual Reality headsets. Saara also teaches the Creativity in Research Scholars Program at the Stanford Design School throughout the year to enable PhD students to push the boundaries of their research using design thinking. In this seminar, Saara will share her own experience moving from research to technology development to starting a company, and dive deep into any questions that people have.

2018 REU Seminar Series, #3

Topic: 
The future of wireless and what it will enable
Abstract / Description: 

Wireless technology has enormous potential to change the way we live, work, and play over the next several decades. Future wireless networks will support 100 Gbps communication between people, devices, and the "Internet of Things," with high reliability and uniform coverage indoors and out. The shortage of spectrum to support such systems will be alleviated by advances in large antenna array technology and moving to higher frequency bands like millimeter wave. Wireless technology will also enable smart and energy-efficient homes and buildings, automated highways and skyways, and in-body networks for monitoring, analysis and treatment of medical conditions. Breakthrough energy-efficiency architectures, algorithms and hardware will allow wireless networks to be powered by tiny batteries, energy-harvesting, or over-the-air power transfer. Finally, new communication systems based on biology and chemistry to encode bits will enable a wide range of new micro and macroscale applications. There are many technical challenges that must be overcome in order to make this vision a reality. This talk will describe what the wireless future might look like along with some of the innovations and breakthroughs required to realize this vision.

2018 REU Seminar Series, #2

Topic: 
Very-High-Frequency Power Electronics: Research Directions and New Applications
Abstract / Description: 

In this talk, I will explain the research directions of my group as well as some of the challenges we face designing converters in the HF and VHF frequency range. I will show some examples of RF converters implemented using air-core inductors embedded in the printed circuits board used to drive a plasma thruster for nano-satellites. I will also discuss some of our recent findings regarding the performance of Wide Bandgap power devices when operating at frequencies above 10MHz, and how we are leveraging this information to design dc-dc converters with large conversion ratios.

2018 REU Seminar Series, #1

Topic: 
Choosing a career path
Abstract / Description: 

Career paths are never linear. There are a lot of bumps, meanderings and uncertainty that come with choosing a job and/or career. The most important place to start is with you. Reflecting on what matters to you, how you want to live your values, experience your strengths (those things you're already good at), and apply your skills, is key to choosing where you want to go. In this program Pamela Paspa, M.A., Board Certified Career Coach, will walk you through an interactive exercise for thinking about what you know about yourself and how to apply that to meaningful work.
