Message from Department Chair Petar Djuric

Congratulations From the ECE Department Faculty and Staff

Armstrong Memorial Research Foundation Awards

Graduate winner: Marzieh Ajirak
Marzieh Ajirak Marzieh Ajirak

Marzieh Ajirak is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Stony Brook University. She works as a researcher in the COSINE Lab under the supervision of Prof. Petar Djurić. Her work focuses on Bayesian machine learning, signal and information processing, and statistical data analysis. She has been investigating non-parametric Bayesian methods to capture complicated patterns from various signals and data including fetal heart rates and uterine activity signals, surveys of patients with mental disorders, and brain signals.

Undergraduate winner: John Boccio
John Boccio John Boccio

John Boccio graduated with the Bachelor of Engineering degree in Computer Engineering from Stony Brook University with a GPA of 4.0. He has held various leadership positions for the Stony Brook Robotics Team, won the Hack@CEWIT robotics competition in 2019, and has a patent pending for an LED color matching algorithm. Over the course of his undergraduate studies, John has conducted research in the field of high-performance computing for deep-learning at Stony Brook University’s COMPAS Lab. Additionally, he has completed four different internships at CA Technologies, Intelligent Product Solutions, Zebra Technologies, and Apple. Starting in June, John will be returning to Apple as a Software Engineer on the Human Interfacing Devices team.

Thesis Title: Optimal Signature Searching
Adviser: Thomas Robertazzi

Signature searching is the process of finding a signature “pattern” of interest in a data file. The objective of this research is to provide approaches for optimal signature searching. The plan is to study the signature searching optimization problem from multiple aspects such as mathematical programming, heuristic algorithms, divisible load scheduling, processing methods, and topology.

Thesis Title: Magnetic Sensing for Recognizing Human Activities: From Toothbrushing to Driving
Adviser: Shan Lin

The human activity recognition technology aims at identifying the action of the subjects automatically. In this dissertation, we propose to develop new magnetic sensing techniques to achieve more accurate, robust, and scalable monitoring than existing systems. We demonstrate that by using magnetic sensing techniques, we can enable monitoring systems for new human activity recognition applications, including manual toothbrushing, electric toothbrushing, and driving.

Thesis Title: Managing Enterprise-Scale Internet of Things: from Service Discovery, Access Control, to Command Execution.
Adviser: Fan Ye

My work focuses on addressing key problems in Internet of Things on an enterprise scale. Specifically, I propose solutions suitable for enterprise IoT which discover IoT services in proximity, ensure only authorized users can access services, and make access operations easy and convenient to human users.
