The Interdisciplinary Microsystems Group (IMG) is a college-wide multi-departmental education and research program of the College of Engineering at the University of Florida.
The Summer 2013 IMG Seminar Series starts this Friday May 17. Dr. David Arnold will be presenting a talk titled: "Tips for Effective Oral Communication" from 11:00 AM to 11:45 AM in LAR 234. All are encouraged to attend. Following this talk, we'll have the weekly BBQ in the Larsen-Benton courtyard.
Pit Fee Jao will defend his dissertation proposal, entitled "Nanofibrous three dimensional microstrucutres for energy storage and bioengineering applications" at 2:00pm on Thursday, May 9th in LAR 234. Refreshments will be provided.
Sean Samuelson will defend his dissertation, entitled “MEMS Electrothermal Actuators in Guided and Unguided Fourier Transform Spectroscopy Systems” at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 25th in LAR 229. Refreshments will be provided.
Congratulations to Cheolbok Kim on receiving the 2013 IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society (AP-S) Doctoral Research Award! The IEEE AP-S awards up to ten PhD fellowships each year to encourage students to pursue a career in the area of Antenna and Electromagnetics. The awards are intended to support students involved in project work directed by a faculty member at their institution who is a member of the IEEE AP-S. The title of his research is: "Low Loss and High Gain Terahertz Antenna Systems Using Micromachined Air-lifted 3D Structures and Metamaterials" The award selection is based on creativity and quality of the proposed project, discussion of the technical interests and skills of the student as well as the recommendation letter.
Miguel Palaviccini will defend his dissertation, entitled "Control of Three-Dimensional Flow Over a Turret" at 10AM, on Monday, April 22nd, in NRF 115. Refreshments will be provided.
Yuan Rao will defend her dissertation, entitled "Input-powered Interface Circuits for Electrodynamic Vibrational Energy Harvesting Systems" at 9:30AM, on Wednesday, April 24th, in NRF 115. All are invited to attend. Breakfast snacks will be provided.
Dylan Alexander will defend his dissertation proposal, entitled "Design, reliability-based optimization, and fabrication of a piezoresistive microelectromechanical microphone with back-side contacts for aeroacoustic measurements" at 8:30am on Thursday, April 18th in LAR 234. Refreshments will be provided.
Per Export Administration Regulations, which apply to the content of the proposal defense (ECCN 9E991), no persons from a designated "terrorist supporting country" is permitted to attend. This includes citizens of Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.
Lin Liu will defend her dissertation, entitled “Large-Scan-Range Electrothermal MEMS Micromirrors and Microlenses and Their Biomedical Imaging Applications" at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 9th in NEB 589. All are invited to attend. Refreshments will be provided.
Kelly McEachern (first-year PhD student) and Zachary Kaufman (graduating undergraduate student) were each awarded the prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Please join me in congratulating both!
