ECE PhD Dissertation Defense: Mahmoud Ibrahim

July 23, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

PhD Dissertation Defense: Low-Power Integrated Circuit Design for Wireless Devices in the Internet of Things Mahmoud Ibrahim Location:  Zoom Abstract: Numerous integrated sensing devices are under development for wireless medical diagnostic and monitoring applications. However, the data rates of wireless devices connected to the Internet of Things are limited and strongly depend on the available power. This research addresses the need for circuit-level design methods to enable higher data rates with lower power consumption in order to facilitate the proliferation…

ECE PhD Proposal Review: Bahare Azari

July 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

PhD Proposal Review: Circular-Symmetric Correlation Layer based on FFT Bahare Azari Location: Zoom Link Abstract: Planar convolutional neural networks, widely known as CNNs, have been exceptionally successful in many computer vision and machine learning tasks, such as object detection, tracking, and classification. The convolutional layers in CNN are characterized by pattern-matching filters that can identify motifs in the signal residing on a 2D plane. However, there exists various applications in which we have signals lying on a curved manifold or…

COE CommLab Research Dissemination Series: Preprints Workshop

July 28, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Do you have a fully drafted journal article ready to share with other researchers that you want to share before the traditional peer review process is done? Preprinting is one way to disseminate your research almost immediately.  Join the Northeastern COE Communication Lab for a workshop discussing the importance of preprints and open science.  We will cover the basics of preprints and address common concerns about preprinting.

ECE PhD Proposal Review: Weite Zhang

July 29, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

PhD Proposal Review: High Sensing-capacity Multi-dimensional-coded Millimeter-wave MIMO Imaging System Weite Zhang Location: Microsoft Teams Link Abstract: Millimeter-wave (mm-wave) MIMO imaging systems have been explored to use more and more complicated radar waveforms to achieve advanced multiplexing and high-performance imaging. As the complexity of the radar waveform increases, conventional systems inevitably suffer from higher design difficulty and cost. In spite of the radar waveform design, existing mm-wave imaging systems are still suboptimal due to the fact that the sensing matrix…

ECE PhD Dissertation Defense: Yulun Zhang

August 2, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

PhD Dissertation Defense: Deep Convolutional Neural Network for Image Restoration and Synthesis Yulun Zhang Location: Zoom Link Abstract: Image restoration and synthesis with deep learning play a fundamental role in the computer vision community. They are widely used on mobile devices (e.g., smartphones) or lead to billion-dollar startups. However, how to design efficient deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to extract higher-quality deep CNN features for better image restoration and synthesis is still challenging. In this dissertation talk, I will describe…

ECE MS Thesis Defense: Owen McElhinney

August 4, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

MS Thesis Defense: On the Application of Spline Functions to Problems in Hyperspectral Imaging Owen McElhinney Location: Zoom Link Abstract: Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) is a rapidly growing topic in the field of remote sensing. Hyperspectral cameras trade off a reduction in the spatial resolution of modern imaging for a higher spectral resolution. This allows for the detection of surface materials using the principles of spectroscopy. This work will investigate the application of a class of functions called splines to three…

ECE MS Thesis Defense: Hooman Barati Sedeh

August 4, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

MS Thesis Defense: Space-Time Graphene Metasurfaces Hooman Barati Sedeh Location: Zoom Link Abstract: The unprecedented growth of the data exchanged between wireless devices and the rapid emergence of high-quality wireless services have raised the demand for communication bandwidth and data transmission rates. This has motivated the migration of wireless networks toward the utilization of carrier waves with higher frequencies beyond the millimeter-wave band. Terahertz (THz) band is envisioned as one of the enabling technologies for future generations of wireless communication…
