Congratulations to Xiaoyu Cheng on receiving the IEEE Antenna and Propagation Soceity (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 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: "A Foldable Biomedical Telemetry Platform Based on Flexible Substrates." 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.
Ashley Jones will defend her dissertation proposal, entitled "Unsteady Circulation Control for High-Performance, Low-Noise Aircraft" at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, May 22 in Larsen 234.
