ORS Scholars Present and Win at 2019 TECHCON

Two ORS undergraduate researchers have won 1st and 3rd place student research presentation awards as part of the TECHCON 2019 conference held in Austin, TX. Daniel Yang won 1st place for presenting his research poster on Printable RF Circuits as part of the Tentzeris ORS group, led by PhD student Aline Eid.  Jesse Jiang won 3rd place for presenting his research poster on 24 GHz RFID Tags as part of the Durgin ORS group, led by PhD student Mohammad Alhassoun.  Ashton Hattori, an ORS undergraduate researcher from Prof. Gaylord’s group, was also asked to give an extended presentation of her poster on 3D microscopy.

ORS Scholars Present at TECHCON

Georgia Tech sent 7 undergraduates to present at the TECHCON 2019 conference held in Austin TX, which draws top researchers, scientists, and a large field of students from across the United States to present cutting-edge research in the field of semiconductor electronics. Georgia Tech students contributed 7 of the approximately 25 undergraduates from around the country in total.

Congratulations to Omer Inan!

Omer Inan has been invited to attend the 2019 China-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium, this upcoming June 20th to 22th in San Diego, California. This symposium will be hosted by Qualcomm and is organized by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. Omer is among 60 early-career engineers from Chinese and United States universities, industry and government who have been chosen to participate. The symposium will cover four topics – smart cities, new materials, neuroengineering, and 5G wireless communications technology. Each participant will be asked to present a poster describing his/her research or technical work.

Since 1995, NAE has held an annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium that brings together 100 highly accomplished early-career engineers from U.S. universities, companies, and government to discuss leading-edge research and technical work across a range of engineering fields. Convening engineers from disparate fields and challenging them to think about developments and problems at the frontiers of areas different from their own can lead to a variety of desirable results. These include collaborative work, the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields, and establishment of contacts among the next generation of leaders in engineering.

Congratulations Omer on your excellent work and achievement!
