Professor Christopher Chen has been selected to receive the 2019 Robert A. Pritzker Distinguished Lecture Award, the Biomedical Engineering Society’s premier recognition for outstanding achievements and leadership in the science and practice of biomedical engineering.
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.
