Congratulations to Kartik Sondhi (advised by Dr. Nishida and Dr. Fan), Renuka Bowrothu (advised by Dr. Yoon), and Kangfu Chen (advised by Dr. Fan) on winning the 2019 IMG Excellence in Research Award! After a long deliberation, the IMG faculty and students selected these members for this award to show appreciation for their research efforts and contributions to their respective fields. May we all aspire to such a level of achievement!
Mayur Ghatge will defend his Ph.D. dissertation entitled "Linear and Non-Linear Micro-Acoustic Waveguides for Frequency Control Applications" at 9:45 am on Wednesday, November 20 in LAR 234.
IMG faculty member, Dr. Z. Hugh Fan, saw his group make a big showing at the MicroTAS 2019 Conference in Basel, Switzerland! His students Pablo Dopico, Carlos Manzanas, and Karim Yousry are presenting their work there this week. Nice job!

Dr. Fan’s group will have an open house this Friday 10/18 (tomorrow) at 11:00 AM in the Microfluidics lab (Benton 237E). For those who have join IMG recently, the open house is an invitation to everyone in IMG to learn about the research, the projects, and the equipment of an IMG group. Some demos will be set up in the lab, and we will be showing some of our projects:
- Pablo, Minh-Chau & Zac: Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs): explanation on how to run a device for CTCs capture, and visualization of the cells under the microscope.
Soon to graduate PhD member of IMG and Dr. Tabrizian’s research group, Mayur Ghatge, recently published a great paper in Nature Electronics titled, “An Ultrathin Integrated Nanoelectromechanical Transducer Based on Hafnium Zirconium Oxide.” Awesome work Mayur!

New IMG Professor Philip Feng presented in the ECE Seminar Series this week with a talk about his research titled, “Emerging Semiconductor Nanoscale Devices and Systems: From Fundamentals to Applications”. It was great to see him share his field of work with all the students in the UF ECE Department!
IMG makes a big splash at NanoDay 2019 held in the UF Nanoscale Research Facility! Many IMG members have participated in the event by submitting research posters, and IMG professor Dr. Jack Judy was one of the main organizers.
