ECE PhD Dissertation Defense: Armin Moharrer

April 12, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

PhD Dissertation Defense: Leveraging Structural Properties for Large-Scale Optimization Armin Moharrer Location: Zoom Link Abstract: Large scale optimization problems abound in data mining, machine learning, and system design. We address the challenges posed by such large scale optimization problems by providing efficient optimization algorithms. The scope of studied problems is quite broad; it includes applications such as experimental design, computing graph distances (dissimilarity scores), training auto-encoders, multi-target regression, and the design of cache networks. We leverage the structural properties present…

ECE PhD Dissertation Defense: Neville Sun

April 12, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

PhD Dissertation Defense: RF Magnetoelectric Devices for Communication, Sensing, and Power Electronics Neville Sun Location: Zoom Link Abstract: A strong magnetoelectric (ME) coupling of layered magnetic/ferroelectric heterostructures can effectively convert energy between electric and magnetic fields. By utilizing strain mediated ME coupling, it is possible to use an electric field to control magnetic film properties, such as magnetization, permeability, and spin wave. Additionally, an applied magnetic field can be used to control electric polarization. In this talk, ME voltage tunable…

ECE PhD Proposal Review: Murphy Wonsick

April 12, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

PhD Proposal Review: Improving Human Robot Interaction through Extended Reality Technologies Murphy Wonsick Location: Teams Link Abstract: Recent advancements in robotics have allowed robots to become capable enough to be used in a wide variety of domains, such as manufacturing, search-and-rescue, and space exploration. However, human-robot interaction with these systems are still primarily achieved using 2D devices, such and laptops, tablets, and/or game controllers despite operating in a 3D world. And although these interfaces can be very capable in operating…
