Professors David Castañón (ECE, SE), Siddharth Ramachandran (ECE, MSE) and Venkatesh Saligrama (ECE, SE) have been named Fellows of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the world’s leading professional association for advancing technology.
Their research proposal has three specific aims, but overall plans to deliver a systematic understanding of the effects of a non-invasive brain stimulation technique, ultrasound neuromodulation.
Professor Xin Zhang (ME, ECE, BME, MSE) is an expert in the field of metamaterials and recently her lab has developed two new structures that can manipulate sound and electromagnetic waves. Although they are different, both offer two forms of wave control in their own spectrums, performance yet seen in other devices.
Cited for translational research on use of metamaterials in MRI, acoustic technologies Xin Zhang, a College of Engineering professor, is […]
Other than adding flavors and colors, it’s been nearly 50 years since a major advancement in the design of condoms. BU researchers may have changed that.
The Optical Society of America (OSA) has elevated Professor Ji-Xin Cheng (ECE) to the rank of fellow for his outstanding contributions to invention and development of label-free optical spectroscopic imaging technologies with groundbreaking applications to biology, medicine and materials science.
Assistant Professor Sahar Sharifzadeh (ECE, MSE, Physics) was recognized by Nature as one of 11 early- to mid-career scientists making an impact in their fields.
Three ENG researchers, Assistant Professor Mary Dunlop, Assistant Professor Wilson Wong, and Professor Ji-Xin Cheng, were awarded a three-year, $1.5M Department of Energy grant to develop technology to better understand and measure the synthesis of biofuels in living cells.
“Big companies and major research universities have begun to work out new terms of engagement that could usher in the […]
