The focus of this integrated research, education, and outreach program is the development of simulation tools capable of modeling the complex electromagnetic environment of high-speed circuits. Key innovations include the use of multi-scale abstraction and introduction of meta-elements to minimize the computational burden.
Dr. Shaunak D. Bopardikar is an Assistant Professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, affiliated with the Center for Connected Autonomous Networked Vehicles for Active Safety (CANVAS). His research interests lie in scalable computation and optimization, in cyber-physical security and in autonomous motion planning and control. He was previously a Staff Research Scientist with the Controls group of United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) at East Hartford, CT, USA and at Berkeley, CA. Prior to joining UTRC, Dr.
Dr. Zhu started magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) research in 1995 under Dr. Michael Buonocore at University of California Davis when he was in graduate school. He developed high-resolution echo planar imaging, arterial spin labeling and phase contrast pulse sequences, and associated analytical techniques for clinical applications. Dr. Zhu joined GE Healthcare in 2000 after he completed his PhD. He worked on various MR methodology developments, including fast spin echo imaging and fast volumetric imaging. He also participated in the development of the new EXCITE MR system.
Jeffrey Nanzer will use a five-year, $500,000 CAREER Award to develop dynamic antenna arrays for radar and remote sensing.
