Two faculty members in the UC Davis College of Engineering, Setareh Rafatirad and Houman Homayoun, recently published a new textbook on applied machine learning that not only explains key concepts of machine learning, but also provides hands-on examples to empower readers to be successful in problem solving.
Researchers at the UC Davis College of Engineering have developed a camera that uses a thin microlens array and new image processing algorithms to capture three dimensional information about objects in a scene with a single exposure. The camera could be useful for a variety of applications such as industrial part inspection, gesture recognition and collecting data for 3D display systems.
Associate Professor Omeed Momeni from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering was honored with a Graduate Program Advising and Mentoring Award from UC Davis Graduate Studies. In being nominated, Momeni was applauded for the extra effort he demonstrated in mentoring students during the pandemic.
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Jeremy Munday recently received a $2.2 million grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to deepen our understanding of the quantum forces at work in nanotechnology.
An interdisciplinary team of researchers led by Professor Saif Islam from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering will be forging a new partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories to create innovative, fluorescence lifetime imaging—a process currently used in the medical field—for improving agricultural practices.
Electrical and Computer Engineering Associate Professor Weijian Yang’s goal is to decode how the brain works in various processes, such as learning and memory formation, through the development of advanced optical methods and neurotechnologies to record and modulate brain activity. Additional interdisciplinary research has applications in biomedical imaging and smart health.
Professor Houman Homayoun’s Accelerated, Secure, and Energy-Efficient Computing (ASEEC) Lab in the UC Davis Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and collaborators at George Mason University received a $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to build secure resource provisioning systems in the cloud.
UC Davis electrical and computer engineering (ECE) professor Juan Sebastian Gomez-Diaz received a Department of Defense grant for research into ultrathin, ‘smart’ infrared sensors that could revolutionize infrared sensing technology.
On Friday, April 8, UC Davis' electrical and computer engineering (ECE) department's alumni, students, and professors presented groundbreaking research, creative projects, and inspirational stories at the annual UC Davis ECExpo.
For the first time in university history, the W.M. Keck Foundation has awarded two research teams at the University of California, Davis, with $1 million each in the same award cycle. One grant will support the creation of new technology for communications and medicine that operates at wavelengths that are not currently utilized. Associate professors Josh Hihath and Sebastian Gomez-Diaz in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are leading the research.
