Jennifer Pazour, Assistant Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Rensselaer, is the recipient of a 2017 Outstanding Recent Graduate Program from her undergraduate alma mater, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
The ISE Department welcomes Dr. Sérgio Pequito as an Assistant Professor starting on August 1. Sérgio obtained his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and InstitutoSuperior Técnico, through the CMU-Portugal program, in 2014. He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from the Instituto SuperiorTécnico in 2007 and 2009, respectively. He was a postdoctoral researcher in General Robotics, Automation, Sensing & Perception Laboratory (GRASP lab) at University of Pennsylvania from 2014-2017.
RPI ISE Ph.D. student Aaron Rowen has accepted the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Science, Mathematics, And Research for Transformation (SMART) fellowship. Aaron’s work will be sponsored by the US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR).
The US Patent Number 9,655,564 titled Use of machine learning for classification of magneto cardiograms was granted on May 23, 2017 to Dr. Karsten Sternickel of Germany, Prof. Mark Embrechts of RPI (ISY) and Prof. Boleslaw Szymanski of RPI (NeST). The patent is for the use of machine learning for pattern recognition in magnetocardiography (MCG). Magnetocardiography measures magnetic fields emitted by the electrophysiological activity of the heart and does not involve any radiation.
