The NSF recently hired Shubhra Gangopadhyay, C.W. LaPierre Endowed Chair Professor of electrical and computer engineering, for one of its program director positions through its Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA).
The research illustrated how fabricating a relatively inexpensive plasmonic grating can create a platform that allows for higher resolution imaging down to 65 nanometers.
MU electrical and computer engineering Professor Shubhra Gangopadhyay and her research group have been investigating applications of platinum nanoparticles, recently publishing a pair of papers on new ways to utilize the materials.
A total of 19 students, five members of the faculty and staff and two alumnae were honored at the 1907 Celebration of Women in Engineering, hosted by the University of Missouri Women in Engineering Center.
Shubhra Gangopadhyay, C.W. LaPierre Endowed Chair Professor of electrical and computer engineering, earned the designation of fellow from the National Academy of Inventors in April.
In November, Travis Tumlin, a 2013 MU mechanical engineering graduate now working on his doctorate at MU, took second place in the student oral presentation competition at the 13th annual Nanotechnology for Defense (NT4D) conference held in California.
Two College of Engineering professors — Shubhra Gangopadhyay and Sanjeev Khanna — earned the designation of fellow by two prestigious professional organizations recently.
The National Science Foundation, through its Innovation Corps Teams Program, has granted funding of $50,000 for six months to Shubhra Gangopadhyay, C.W. LaPierre Chair Professor in electrical and computer engineering, and her I-Corps team. The purpose of the program is to provide NSF-funded researchers with additional funds through a competitive process to help turn scientific discoveries into commercialized projects.
