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.

Engineers solve grand challenges by forming interdisciplinary centers
Boston University makes the short list of top Robotics Universities, according to Analytics Insight. The Robotics Lab at Boston University’s college of engineering offers three distinct research topics to impart the knowledge of how to program and create robotic automation among its students. Boston University Robotics Lab is a self-contained research facility situated in the Engineering Product Innovation Center (EPIC) on Boston University’s Charles River campus.
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.
“There is a lot of information about every one of us, in EHRs, in smart phones, in smart watches, and in other tracking devices,” Iaonnis Paschalidis, Director of the Center for Information and Systems Engineering and Systems Engineering Professor, told HealthITAnalytics.com. “We can now analyze what happens to patients in real time and characterize the status and health condition of each individual.”
