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.

Shayla Breedlove wins 2022 Optica Amplify Black Scholars Award

IMG member Shayla Breedlove, a PhD student in the Multidisciplinary Nano and Microsystems (MNM) Lab, becomes one of 15 members of the inaugural class of OpticaWorldwide Amplify Scholars, which supports Black students and their passion for light science.

Shayla is supervised by Dr. Zmuda and Dr. Yoon. Congrats!

Woosol Lee Awarded 2022 IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) Graduate Fellowship Award

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.

Woosol Lee awarded 2022 IEEE AP-S Doctoral Research Fellowship Award

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.
