Congratulations to Dr. Yoon's group for having seven papers accepted to the Electronic Components and Technology Conference (ECTC) happening in Orlando from May 30-June 2! The first authors of these papers are IMG Members Hanna Jang, Saeyeong Jeon, Ziqi Jia, Payman Pahlavan, Hae-In Kim, Sunghyun Hwang, and Alexander Wilcher. Best of luck to everyone presenting at the conference, and thank you for representing IMG so well!
List of accepted conference papers:
IMG Member Woosol Lee was awarded the 2023 ECE Research Excellence Award! This award is given annually to the top ECE graduate student who has excelled in their research throughout the academic year. It was announced on Monday, April 24th, at the IEEE/HKN/WECE Awards Banquet. Congratulations, Woosol!
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.
Woosol Lee will present his dissertation defense on March 10th 8:30 AM, the topic will be "High efficiency wireless power transfer using advanced metamaterial and metaconductor"

Congratulations to IMG member Woosol Lee who has received the 2022 IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) Graduate Fellowship Award for the project titled “Highly efficient mmWave based far-field wireless power transfer system using metaconductors and metamaterials.” This is a very prestigious award given to only 12 students in the world each year in the IEEE MTT society.
Congratulations to IMG Member Woosol Lee who has received the 2022 IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society (AP-S) Doctoral Research Fellowship Award. This is a highly prestigious and competitive honor for Ph.D. students in IEEE AP-S, and the goal of this award is to encourage pursuit of careers in advanced electromagnetics. The award selection is based on creativity and quality of the proposed project as well as discussion of the technical interests and skills of the student. The title of his project, under the supervision of Dr. Y.K.
