ECE Ph.D. Student Awards

Congratulations to our esteemed Ph.D. students whose achievements exemplify the outstanding work being done at Cornell ECE.

Brandon Regensburger, ECE Ph.D. (Afridi Lab), was awarded the Best Presentation Award at APEC 2019 on March 21. The presentation was on his paper "High-Efficiency High-Power-Transfer-Density Capacitive Wireless Power Transfer System for Electric Vehicle Charging Utilizing Semi-Toroidal Interleaved-Foil Coupled Inductors."

Kevin Lee, ECE Ph.D. (Jena Lab), received the best student poster award at the 77th Device Research Conference held at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in June.

Jeff Miller, ECE Ph.D. (Xing Lab), was selected as one of the Ph.D. students to minor in entrepreneurship, helping to bring this program to a wider Ph.D. audience.

Reet Chaudhuri, ECE Ph.D., and Samuel James Bader, AEP Ph.D., (Jena/Xing Group), report the first hole doping arising from symmetry breaking in GaN/AlN without impurity dopants. This phenomenon was first predicted by Cornell researchers about 20 years ago.

Wenshen Li, ECE Ph.D. (Xing Lab), was invited to give a talk at the recent ECS annual meeting on his Ga2O3 power transistors.

Aobo Chen, ECE Ph.D. (Monticone Lab), received an Honorable Mention at the Student Paper Competition of the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation with the paper "Ultra-compact wave-based solvers for fractional-calculus equations."
