HIGHLIGHTS: July 2018

FACULTY HIGHLIGHTS

Michal Lipson Receives the 2019 IEEE Photonics Award

Lipson received the award, which represents the highest honor bestowed by the IEEE Photonics Society, for her outstanding achievements in photonics.
Julia Hirschberg, the Hudson Professor of Computer Science, was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Mihalis Yannakakis, the Hudson Professor of Computer Science, was elected to the National Academy of Sciences.
Suman Jana, assistant professor of computer science, has been selected by the Army Research Office to receive a Young Investigator Program award for his proposal, “Building Efficient Fuzzers using Automata Learning.”
Columbia Engineering mourns the loss of Christopher Rae Jacobs, professor of biomedical engineering.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS

Researchers led by Pierre Gentine, associate professor of earth and environmental engineering, demonstrate that machine learning techniques can be used to better represent clouds in coarse resolution climate models, with the potential to narrow the range of climate prediction.
Biomedical engineers led by Joshua Jacobs, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, have discovered a new fundamental feature of brain oscillations: they actually move rhythmically across the brain, reflecting patterns of neuronal activity that propagate across the cortex.
A team of researchers including Latha Venkataraman, professor of applied physics, have synthesized the first molecule capable of insulating at the nanometer scale more effectively than a vacuum barrier.
Jim Schuck, associate professor of mechanical engineering, was part of a Berkeley Lab team that discovered a way to convert nanoparticle-coated microscopic beads into lasers smaller than red blood cells.
Dean Mary C. Boyce and Senior Executive Vice Dean Shih-Fu Chang announced eight winning proposals for interdisciplinary seed and translational research.

In addition, Columbia Engineering has announced three winning research proposals that are the first to receive support from the Blavatnik Acceleration Funds.

STUDENT HIGHLIGHTS

Columbia Engineering has announced the first five recipients of doctoral fellowships sponsored by Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB), a Beijing-based graduate business school.

ALUMNI HIGHLIGHTS

Dean Boyce moderated a series of events in Asia, featuring panel discussions on fintech and artificial intelligence with Columbia faculty and prominent alumni and friends of Columbia.
Alumni across decades and disciplines reconvened at Reunion to toast distinguished peers and catch up on the coursework, technologies, and research making Columbia Engineering a global hub for innovation and entrepreneurship.
