Dr. Chris Mi - Recipient of the 2022 Albert W. Johnson Research Lectureship
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Chair, Dr. Chris Mi, is the
recipient of the Albert W. Johnson Research Lectureship which is SDSU's highest research
Dr. Mi presented the lecture, "Wireless Power Transfer - from Science Fiction to Reality" - Over the past 100 years, scientists have been searching for solutions to realize wireless power transfer reliably and efficiently. Their goal? A tether-free world. It is only in
the past ten years that this has become reality. With the help of semiconductor devices, electromagnetic materials, and microcomputers, we can now not only charge a cell phone wirelessly, but we can also charge an electric car or a humongous electric ship without plugging it in. In this talk, Professor Chris Mi will look at how his work has made wireless power transfer cheaper, faster, safer and more efficient, enabling cable-free conference rooms, battery-less drones, and factories populated by untethered robots and autonomous vehicles.

Dr. Junfei Xie Receives the NSF CAREER Award
Dr. Junfei Xie, Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, received the NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award, which is the NSF’s most prestigious award for early-career faculty. The title of the project supported by this award is "Towards Networked Airborne Computing in Uncertain Airspace: A Control and Networking Facilitated Distributed Computing Framework". This 5-year project aims to develop an innovative theoretical framework to enable networked airborne computing, which relies on the airborne network formed by aerial vehicles with direct flight-to-flight communication links to achieve computing in the air. Findings from this project will have broad applications to next-generation air traffic control, Internet of Things, mobile edge computing, etc.
