I am pleased to provide an update on our vibrant community of students, faculty, and alums here at the Electrical Engineering Department at Columbia University.
We are actively looking to further grow and we have launched a search for a new junior faculty member in the department. Please encourage your graduating doctoral students or postdocs bound for academia to apply
We also have plenty of
for students to apply to our
programs and many of our research groups offer postdoctoral positions.
Our faculty and students continue to receive international acclaim. Prof. Ethan Katz-Bassett received the
2019 SIGCOMM Rising Star
. Our newest faculty member Prof. Asaf Cidon received the
USENIX Distinguished paper
. PhD student Anthony Rizzo won the
2019 Synopsys Robert S. Hilbert Memorial Optical Design Competition
, while EE alumna Miriam Marwick received
Prestigious Award for Excellence in Research
Our fall semester is off to a running start with many upcoming activities. We are excited to host Dr. Andrew Viterbi for our
Armstrong Memorial Lecture
on October 15th. The
F1/10 Autonomous Racing Competition
will take place on October 14th and promises to be a lot of fun.
My best wishes for a successful fall semester!
