UF Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Assistant Professor Dr. Navid Asadi will be serving as the program chair for the well-regarded 2021 IEEE PAINE Conference, to be held Nov. 30–Dec. 2, 2021, hosted virtually from Washington, D.C.
University of Florida researcher Damon Woodard is using artificial intelligence methods to develop algorithms that can detect deepfakes — images, text, video and audio that purports to be real but isn’t. These algorithms, Woodard says, are better at detecting deepfakes than humans.
UF Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering Professor and Co-Director of the International Center for Lightning Research & Testing (ICLRT) Vladimir Rakov has been awarded a $1M grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for his project, “Lightning Studies Based on Measurements Spanning the Ranges from Radio Frequency to Optical (including Infrared and Ultraviolet) to Gamma-Rays.”
ECE Assistant Professor and member of the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity (FICS) Research Farimah Farahmandi has been awarded a $500K grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for her project, “Security-Aware High-Level Synthesis (SHINE).”
ECE Assistant Professor Joel Harley is embarking on a unique collaboration with Douglas E. Spearot from the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE)—using a UF Informatics Institute Seed Fund Program grant to better understand how a high entropy alloy (HEA) works on an atomic level.
Dr. Swarup Bhunia, director and the Semmoto Endowed Professor at University of Florida's Electric and Computer Engineering Department, and Dr. My T. Thai, associate director and UF's Research Foundation professor at the Computer and Information Science Engineering Department, share the different Covid-19 innovations coming out of the Warren B. Nelms Institute for the Connected World.
University of Florida researchers Dr. Roozbeh Tabrizian and Dr. Swarup Bhunia, professors in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, have developed tiny mechanical ID tags that are unclonable, cheap, and invisible.
Dr. Roozbeh Tabrizian has been selected to receive a highly prestigious Director’s Fellowship from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
ECE Florida Professor YK Yoon and his Multidisplinary nano and Microsystems (MnM) Laboratory will lead the effort to provide innovative metaconductor technology to low-loss glass substrates, which can result in order of magnitude reduction in loss performance.
Assistant Professor and Alan Hastings Faculty Fellow Dr. Roozbeh Tabrizian is the recipient of the 2020-21 Pramod P. Khargonekar Award for the most outstanding junior faculty member undergoing tenure and promotion review this past fall.
