Openings in the BCDL
We are always looking to work with self-motivated students who are interested in our research. Our inter-disciplinary work provides research opportunities in the fields of computational modeling, applied electromagnetics, antennas, bioheat transfer, and medical instrumentation.
Graduate students interested in pursuing research with the lab are encouraged to contact Punit Prakash (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please include a brief description of why you are interested in the research, previous research experience, and attach a copy of your CV.
Find us at the following conferences
IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference, Milan, Italy, August 25-29, 2015.
August 2014: Punit Prakash and Steve Warren organized and co-chaired a special session on the design of instrumentation for round-the-clock assessment of children with special needs. Punit presented a paper within this session and was co-chair for two other sessions.
July 2014: Mohammed Taj-Eldin presents a paper at the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium in Memphis, TN.
May 2014: Brogan McWilliams wins a Young Investigator Award at the Society for Thermal Medicine Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, MN. At the meeting, Brogan presented results of the research Emily Schnell and he conducted on a directional microwave antenna for tissue ablation. Congratulations! Punit presented a talk on frequency considerations for microwave ablation systems at the same meeting.
