Faculty Spotlight

Elena Semouchkina

Elena Semouchkina

Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

"Novel devices can be created, operating from radio frequencies to visible light."

Semouchkina engineers artificial materials with unusual properties and employs them to control electromagnetic wave paths. This makes it possible to modify antenna radiation patterns and build devices with unprecedented functionalities, such as invisibility cloaks.

Where you'll work

Our department has been a world leader since 1928, setting the standard for electrical and computer engineering research and scholarship. Occupying 50,000 square feet of space, our labs and facilities include the Microfabrication Facility, the Paul and Susan Williams Center for Computer Systems Research, the Wireless Positioning Laboratory, the Energy Storage Laboratory, and the Smart Grid Control Center, along with other spaces for research in power, photonics, microgrids, and robotics. 

Our work gets results, including millions in research support from organizations such as the National Science Foundation, Electrical Power Research Institute, and Teledyne Scientific and Imaging. Our faculty contribute to knowledge in the field through their high-quality publications and editorial positions in disciplinary journals like IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, Applied Optics, and International Journal of Modeling and Simulation.
