Congratulations to Sunghyun Hwang on IEEE Transactions on CPMT Publication!

Congratulations to Sunghyun Hwang (Dr. Yoon’s Group) on his recent journal publication in IEEE Transactions on Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology! This work, “Metal assisted chemical etching toward scallop-free-sidewall through silicon vias: A Review”, discusses current TSV (Through-Silicon Via) fabrication technologies and recent advancements in the MACE (Metal-Assisted Chemical Etching) based fabrication process.

Welcome to IMG, Dr. Adam Khalifa!

IMG is excited to welcome its newest faculty member, Dr. Adam Khalifa!  Dr. Khalifa runs the Neural Interface Technology Laboratory in the ECE department.  His research focuses on low-power analog/RF/Mixed-mode ASIC design, miniaturization, wireless powering, electrode design/microfabrication, coil design/fabrication for magnetic stimulation, neural stimulation and recording in animal models, and implant packaging.  Welcome to IMG, Dr. Khalifa!

Women's History Month: Cameron Anderson

Our second featured member for Women's History Month is Cameron Anderson! An Oakland, NJ native, Cameron joined IMG in the fall of 2020. While working at an energy access startup, she decided to pursue her PhD to enable a career change. Her research focuses on screen-printed flexible electronics, specifically sensors for wearable devices. Cameron is keeping her post-graduation options open, but currently plans to go to industry and continue working with flexible electronics.

Women's History Month: Hae-In Kim

To celebrate Women’s History Month, we want to highlight the very talented female members of IMG, starting with Hae-In Kim! Originally from South Korea, Hae-In joined IMG back in 2018 and was motivated by her interest in radio frequency (RF) devices to pursue her PhD. Her research focuses on investigating the use of metaconductors to minimize conductor loss in certain RF devices. On top of her scientific work, Hae-In also has a passion for promoting diversity and inclusion in STEM through her involvement with IEEE Women in Engineering.

Congratulations to Aftab and Dr. Nishida on their Scientific Reports Publication!

Congratulations to IMG Member Aftab Bhanvadia and Dr. Toshikazu Nishida on their recent journal publication, “3D printing of hollow geometries using blocking liquid substitution stereolithography” in Scientific Reports!  This work improves freedom over the 3D printing process by using UV blocking liquids in hollow geometries.  Read more about it here: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-022-26684-z

Congratulations to Suhas and Dr. Moghaddam on their International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer Publication!

Congratulations to IMG Member Suhas Tamvada and Dr. Saeed Moghaddam on their recent publication in the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer!  Titled “On critical heat flux and its evaporation momentum and hydrodynamic limits,” this work explains the underlying physics of critical heat flux and demonstrates that the evaporation limit is the ultimate limit of CHF. Read more about their pioneering work here: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijheatmasstransfer.2022.123837

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

IMG’ers concluded the semester with a festive White Elephant Gift Exchange Party! Thank you to all who attended and made it a wonderful time. Shoutout to IMG members George Adedokun for the photos, and Shaurya Dabas for the food. Wishing everyone a very joyous and safe holiday season, and a successful new year ahead! 

Congratulations to Chenyu Liang and Dr. Xin Tang on Biomaterials publication! 

Congratulations to IMG Member Chenyu Liang and Dr. Xin Tang on their recent publication in the journal Biomaterials!  Titled “Human cancer cells generate spontaneous calcium transients and intercellular waves that modulate tumor growth,” this work provides evidence that calcium dynamics enables long-distance functional communication in non-excitable cancer cells and offers the potential to modulate calcium signaling for new cancer therapies.
