ECSE: What PhD Program are you in? What year are you? Where did you complete your B.S. and M.S.?
Meaghan Podlaski (MP): I’m in my first year of the electrical engineering PhD program. I finished my BS and MS in electrical engineering in 2019 at RPI through the co-terminal program.
ECSE: Who are you working with at RPI?
MP: Luigi Vanfretti
ECSE: What are your general research areas?
Jack graduated more than 70 Masters students and 45 PhD students. He had over 300 journal and conference articles in high impact IEEE journals and conferences. He was able to acquire 40 SUN stations 20 years ago to make ECSE/RPI one of few schools nation and worldwide that offered industry-grade CAD tools such as Cadence tools and design kits from chip manufacturers such as IBM (now managed by Global Foundries) to our students taking VLSI classes.
The Department of Energy announced February 10, 2020 – $74 million awarded for 63 selected projects to, ‘research, develop, and
ECSE Faculty Prof. Michael Shur been appointed Senior member of URSI (The International Union of Radio Science). The International Union of Radio Science (Union Radio-Scientifique Internationale), a non-governmental and non-profit organisation under the International Council for Science, is responsible for stimulating and co-ordinating, on an international basis, studies, research, applications, scientific exchange, and communication in the fields of radio science, according to their website.
TROY, N.Y. — Partha Dutta, a professor of electrical, computer, and systems engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, envisions a not-so-distant future where even the most remote parts of the world would have access to clean and renewable energy. His vision wouldn’t require a large power grid or expensive technology. Instead, he believes it could be accomplished using simple mirrors, local resources, and the sun.
“I call this ‘engineering for a better world,’ which means that you have to use affordable, accessible, and adequate resources,” Dutta said.
Congratulations to ECSE Professor Birsen Yazici on being selected to serve as a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Aerospace & Electronic Systems Society! Distinguished Lecturers and Tutorial speakers are ambassadors of the AESS, who serve as an important demonstration of the value of membership in IEEE and AESS in particular. The lecturers are truly distinguished speakers who are experts in the technical fields of the society.
When most people pay it forward, they do something helpful for someone else – because of a good deed someone did on their behalf.
Then there’s John Paserba.
He has been paying it forward to thousands of engineering students and professionals since shortly after entering the working world more than 30 years ago. But he’s also quick to acknowledge that – starting with his sixth-grade science teacher – many people have done good deeds for him along the way.
The kickoff event, which is open to reporters, will take place in Room 308 of the Darrin Communications Center starting at 9:15 a.m. on Saturday, January 4. Simultaneous kickoff events will be held across the world. The celebration broadcast, which will be shown at all of them, begins at 10 a.m.
TROY, N.Y. — Whether you’re traveling for work or for fun, nothing ruins the start of a trip quite like jet lag. Engineers affiliated with the Lighting Enabled Systems & Applications (LESA) Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a way to deliver personalized advice using smart wearable technology that would help travelers adjust more quickly.
