EECS chair Kenneth A. Loparo elected AIMBE fellow

Ken LoparoThe American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the induction of Kenneth Loparo, Nord Professor of Engineering and chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, to its College of Fellows.

Loparo was nominated, reviewed and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for the development of advanced signal processing techniques to improve monitoring, detection, and diagnosis in critical care, epilepsy, and sleep.

The College of Fellows is comprised of the top 2 percent of medical and biological engineers in the country, and AIMBE fellows are regularly recognized for their contributions in teaching, research and innovation.

Loparo joins 23 other Case Western Reserve faculty members in this elite group of scholars. He was formally inducted at a ceremony held during the AIMBE’s Annual Meeting in the National Academy of Science in Washington, DC, on March 15.

5 questions with senior computer science major and hacker Stephanie Hippo

Early in life, Stephanie Hippo's parents gave her sound advice: "You can complain about something, but until you do something about it, you're just part of the problem." Two years ago, Hippo encountered a problem - the lack of women in computer science - and decided to do something about it.


EECS' Philip Feng receives NSF Career Award

Philip Feng, assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science, has won a $500,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Award for his five-year project, “Dynamically Tuning 2D Semiconducting Crystals and Heterostructures for Atomically-Thin Signal Processing Devices and Systems.”
Called a CAREER award, it’s the NSF’s most prestigious grant to junior faculty members. Winners are chosen because they exemplify the role of researcher-teacher-scholar through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of the two.

Researchers discern the shapes of high-order Brownian motions

EECS researchers discern the shapes of high-order Brownian motions

For the first time, scientists have vividly mapped the shapes and textures of high-order modes of Brownian motions—in this case, the collective macroscopic movement of molecules in microdisk resonators—researchers at Case Western Reserve University report. In his lab Philip Feng worked closely with research associate Max Zenghui Wang and Ph.D. student Jaesung Lee on the study. They used a record-setting scanning optical interferometry technique, described in a study published today in the journal Nature Communications.
