ECCS News & Events
April 2015 - NSF has named Dr. Andrea Alù, an ECCS Grantee and engineering professor at the University of Texas at Austin, as the recipient of this year's Alan T. Waterman Award. Dr. Alù is a leading innovator in metamaterials, or artificial materials with properties and wave interactions not found in nature, and plasmonics, the study of how light interacts with the surface of nanoscale objects. He is best known for his pioneering research in metamaterial theory and applications. Read more.
March 2015 - ECCS welcomes Dr. Chengshan Xiao to the CCSS Program as a new Program Director. Dr. Xiao is currently a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly University of Missouri – Rolla). His areas of expertise include Wireless Communications and Signal Processing, Circuits and Systems, and Control Systems.
February 2015 - ECCS welcomes Dr. Hao Ling to the CCSS Program as a new Program Director. Dr. Ling is currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin and holds the L. B. (Preach) Meaders Professorship in Engineering. Dr. Ling's principal areas of expertise are in radar signature prediction and radar feature extraction. His recent research interests also include radar signal processing, radar sensing of humans, miniaturized and broadband antenna design, and propagation channel modeling in non-line-of-sight environments.
January 2015 - ECCS welcomes Dr. Nadia A. El-Masry to the EPMD as a new Program Director.
