Rodriguez studies interactions between light and advanced nanostructured materials. He develops theoretical and computational techniques to explore these phenomena and to create new devices that allow greater control and tunability over properties of light. Past honors include a Presidential Early Career Award from Princeton University, an E…
Minjie Chen, a leader in making power electronic systems more compact and energy efficient, has received the Richard M. Bass Outstanding Young Power Electronics Engineer Award from the IEEE Power Electronics Society. The international award is given each year to a power electronics engineer under 35 years of age.
Graduate student Michael Soskind, who studies advanced laser technologies for environmental sensing, has been awarded a 2023 Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship by the international optics and photonics society known as SPIE.
"Life is full of the unexpected," said James Sturm, chair and Stephen R. Forrest Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He said he was most proud of the graduates in those moments they had to build on their coursework to solve unanticipated problems. "You had to figure it out on your own and learn from each other."
Princeton ECE held its graduate commencement ceremony on Monday, May 29, celebrating the 25 doctoral students and 14 master’s students who earned graduate degrees over the past year. The ceremony featured an invited speaker, Leah Jamieson, a 1977 Ph.D. alumna, and the presentation of the department’s annual graduate student awards.
By improving mobile measurements of air quality and geolocating them to sites like highways, buildings, parking lots and green spaces, Jovan Aigbekaen’s research for his Princeton University senior thesis unveils critical information that could help cities become cleaner and more livable. He put the technology through its proof-of-concept stage in suburban central New Jersey.
Chi Jin, an expert in the theoretical underpinnings and approaches to training machine learning models, has won a junior faculty award from Princeton's School of Engineering and Applied Science, one of the school's annual honors for junior faculty. Each recipient of a 2023 junior faculty award will receive $50,000 to support their work.
Konuru partnered with Kelvin Green, a junior in civil and environmental engineering, to create a system that removes pollution from the atmosphere in a way that could be cheaply scaled for broad use. Current methods for direct air capture are expensive, and the main use for captured CO2 is in speeding up fossil fuel extraction, according to the…
The National Science Foundation has selected a Princeton ECE-led consortium to receive one of the first-ever NSF Engines Development Awards, which provide up to two years of funding toward the planning of regional initiatives to create economic, societal and technological opportunities.
Antoine Kahn and Saien Xie are leading a project that aims to build the world's first atomically thin and lightweight imager capable of measuring the intensity of light at distinct wavelengths, for applications such as medical imaging, precision agriculture, environmental monitoring and self-driving vehicles. Their project was one of three funded by the 2023 Schmidt Transformative Technology Fund.
While Congress has invested billions of dollars to support the U.S. semiconductor industry, a little-known bottleneck deep in the chip-design process still threatens to stymie innovation. Today’s high-tech chips have become increasingly hard — and prohibitively expensive — for startups and academics to design and test. A new open source platform from Princeton ECE researchers helps break this bottleneck by making this process faster and more accessible.
A Terahertz wireless device that uses no additional power to send large amounts of data over ambient signals has won a Best Paper Award at the USENIX Symposium on Network System Design and Implementation (NSDI). It was one of 96 papers selected among nearly 600 submissions. Grad student Atsutse Kludze and his adviser Yasaman Ghasempour presented the paper on April 17.
