Sai Geetha Seri’s PhD Proposal Review

January 30, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

"Advancing Passive Ocean Acoustic Waveguide Remote Sensing for Detection of Fish Sounds, Seismo-Acoustic Airgun Signals, and Marine Mammal Vocalizations including Instrumentation Enhancements" Committee: Prof Purnima Ratilal Makris (Advisor) Prof Josep M Jornet Dr Nils Olav Handegard Abstract: Underwater passive acoustic monitoring is important for understanding the marine environment, since many ocean entities produce sound that can travel long ranges especially at low frequencies. For instance, sound plays a vital role in the communication, navigation, and behavior of many marine biological…

Amani Al-shawabka’s PhD Proposal Review

January 31, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
432 ISEC, 360 Huntington Ave
Boston, MA 02115 United States
+ Google Map

"Channel-and-Adversary-Resilient Radio Fingerprinting through Data-Driven Approaches at Scale"   Abstract: Radio fingerprinting authenticates wireless devices by leveraging tiny hardware-level imperfections inevitably present in the radio circuitry. This way, devices can be directly identified at the physical layer– thus avoiding energy-expensive upper-layer cryptography that resource-limited embedded devices may not be able to afford. Recent advances have proven that employing deep learning algorithms can achieve fingerprinting accuracy levels that were impossible to achieve by traditional low-dimensional algorithms. Still, the wireless research community…

Qing Jin’s PhD Proposal Review

February 2, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

"Decoupling Efficiency-Performance Optimization for Modern Neural Networks" Committee: Prof. Yanzhi Wang (Advisor) Prof. David R. Kaeli Prof. Sunil Mittal Prof. Jennifer Dy Abstract: Deep learning has achieved remarkable success in a variety of modern applications, but this success is often accompanied by inefficiency in terms of storage and inference speed, which can hinder their practical use on resource-constrained hardware. Developing highly efficient neural networks that maintain high prediction accuracy is crucial and challenging. This dissertation explores the potential for simultaneously…
