Congratulations to the Electrical Engineering Class of 2013! The Electrical Engineering Department is proud of your accomplishments and extends our best wishes to each of you for a future filled with success.
Prof. Mung Chiang is the recipient of the Alan T. Waterman Award, the highest honor for young researchers given by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Researchers at Princeton University are developing technology that could lead to widespread wireless charging stations for all our electronics. This technology could also help build better sensors to monitor the health of both humans and buildings. The research was presented by students L. Huang, Y. Hu, W. Rieutort-Louis, and J. Sanz-Robinson (advised by Profs. Naveen
Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and Skype have become household names as demand soars for movies, television shows, amateur videos, and video calls delivered via the Internet and mobile networks. As a result, this enormous thirst for moving pixels is fast outpacing the capacity to supply video to viewers' screens.
A team of Princeton researchers led by Mung Chiang, a professor of electrical engineering, is grappling with the problem by exploring ways to make global networks more efficient.
Cloud computing is a disruptive trend that is changing the way we use computers, by providing elastic computing resources on demand. The convenience and cost savings of cloud computing unfortunately also come with serious security and privacy concerns. Professor Ruby Lee and her students in the Princeton Architecture Lab for Multimedia and Security (PALMS) study hardware-enhanced security for cloud computing.
