  2. Fawwaz Ulaby retires after nearly four decades of championing students and excelling at research and leadership

    Students say Ulaby, a member of the National Academy of Engineering and recipient of the Edison Medal, is one of the best professors – and people – they’ve ever known.

  3. Using remote sensing to track microplastics in the ocean

    Electrical Engineering undergrad Madeline Evans is a key researcher on a project that uses NASA’s Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System to monitor microplastic pollution that harms marine ecosystems.

  4. Snails carrying the world’s smallest computer help solve mass extinction survivor mystery

    The study yields new insights into the survival of a native snail important to Tahitian culture and ecology and to biologists studying evolution, while proving the viability of similar studies of very small animals including insects

  5. Prof. Pei Zhang solemnly swears that he’s up to some good

    In a project he calls the “Marauder’s Map,” Prof. Zhang uses machine learning-based data models, physics models, and heuristic models to turn physical structures into sensing devices.

  6. Demba Komma awarded Microsoft Research Ada Lovelace Fellowship for research on IoT localization technologies

    Komma, a PhD student, is working to develop robust low powered localization technology for Artificial Intelligence enabled Internet of Things in locations where GPS is limited or blocked.

  7. Kaleo Roberts receives scholarship from the American Indian Science and Engineering Society

    Roberts works to improve remote sensing of soil moisture, which is important for environmental conservation, natural resource management, and agriculture.

  8. Tracking Monarch Butterfly Migration with the World’s Smallest Computer

    In a project funded by National Geographic, ECE researchers are teaming up with the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology to advance our understanding of monarch butterfly migration with the most ambitious iteration of the Michigan Micro Mote yet.
