January 2013 - Metamaterials Could Slim Down Millimeter-Wave Imagers
November 2012 - A grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to Dr. Bonny Banerjee, assistant
professor of electrical and computer engineering and Institute for Intelligent Systems
at the University of Memphis, will not only foster interdisciplinary research bringing
together fields as diverse as computer engineering and audiology, but will eventually
allow severely hearing-impaired people lead the lives of their normal-hearing counterparts.
September 2012 - The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (EECE) at the University of
Memphis invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track faculty position at
the Assistant Professor level. The successful candidate will teach undergraduate and
graduate courses in Electrical and Computer Engineering, establish an externally funded
research program, mentor M.S. and Ph. D. graduate students, and participate in faculty
service activities. Expertise in electro-optics, intelligent information systems,
imaging, and signal processing, particularly statistical, is desired. In imaging and
signal processing, biomedical applications are an emphasis. Outstanding candidates
in other areas, however, will be considered. All applications must be made at UofM Workforum, through this position link.
September 2012 - Dr. Bonny Banerjee has been awarded an NSF grant, "Algorithms for Unsupervised Online
Learning of Hierarchy of Features for Tuning Cochlear Implants for the Hearing Impaired."
July 2012 - Dr. Russell Deaton has joined the department as Chair and Ring Professor of Engineering.
His primary research area is in computer methods for design and analysis of DNA-guided
self-assembly of nano structures.
