A project to make better and brighter augmented-reality (AR) systems, led by ECE researchers, has been selected for financial support from Princeton’s Intellectual Property Accelerator Fund.
Two new interdisciplinary research projects led by ECE faculty have won seed funding from Princeton University’s Schmidt DataX Fund, marking the third round of grants undertaken by the fund since 2019. The fund, supported through a major gift from the Schmidt Futures Foundation, provides grants to explore using artificial intelligence and…
Physicist Rodrick Kuate Defo has received a Ford Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship to study the theoretical underpinnings of quantum optical devices.
The National Science Foundation has granted Yasaman Ghasempour a CAREER Award, part of its Faculty Early Career Development Program that supports junior faculty who exemplify leadership in education and research. The award is the NSF’s most prestigious recognition of early-career academic scientists and engineers and comes with more than $500,000 in research funding over five years.
Combining questions about a person’s health with data from smartwatch sensors, a new app developed using research at Princeton University can predict within minutes whether someone is infected with COVID-19.
Two graduate students in electrical and computer engineering, Zheng Liu and Hooman Saeidi, have been recognized by IEEE for their work on wireless communications systems.
Yasaman Ghasempour, who joined the faculty in January 2021 as an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, is pioneering next-generation wireless tools that couple communications and sensing. Antennas typically broadcast at a range of frequencies in all directions, but Ghasempour is exploring devices that transmit signals with a laser-like focus, emitting a specific frequency in a specific direction.
H. Vincent Poor’s foundational research has helped propel the rise of digital and wireless communications. Poor is Princeton’s Michael Henry Strater University Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Three graduate students in electrical and computer engineering received the annual Yan Huo *94 Graduate Fellowship, supporting their work designing hardware for next-generation wireless communication and sensing, designing algorithms that analyze networked systems, and experimenting with exotic electron states in ultra-pure materials.…
