During DiscoverEE days on March 12th and 13th, the department welcomed newly admitted grad students. The 2-day event culminated with a student research poster session and contest. Twenty-six posters were presented, representing EE's core research areas:
The DiscoverEE Days Student Research Poster Session is a unique forum for students and postdocs to share their own work and learn about exciting research of their colleagues throughout the department. It also provides newly admitted students the opportunity to see EE's student research in an informal, festive environment.
Poster judging was done by a small group of faculty and staff. Judges offered each presenter an opportunity to summarize their work and answer questions within a set timeframe. Judging criteria was based on 4 components: originality, content, oral presentation, and visual quality. One winner and one honorable mention were awarded from each core area. Winning presenters received a gift card and certificate, honorable mentions received a certificate. The awards went to:
- Hardware/Software Systems
Winner: David Lo, "Heracles: Improving Resource Efficiency at Scale"
Honorable Mention: Sean Fischer, "Low Noise Potentiostat for Quantum Biomolecular Transduction"
- Information Systems & Science
Winner: Ethan Johnson, "T2-selective excitation with UTE imaging for bone MRI"
Honorable Mention: Keshav Datta, "The Spielman Laboratory: Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Multinuclear Imaging"
- Physical Technology & Science
Winner: Amelia Christensen, "Optical tools for interrogating spinal cord circuitry "
Honorable Mention: Colleen Shang, "Strained germanium-tin multiple quantum well microdisk resonators towards a light source on silicon"
Congratulations and thanks to everyone for participating in DiscoverEE Days. Additional thanks to the EE Student Life Committee for sponsoring the poster contest and generous prizes.
