Li and Banerjee Win Best Student Paper Awards at BioWireleSS

Two students under the direction of Changzhi Li, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, won best paper awards in the IEEE Radio Wireless Week in Newport Beach, Calif. in January. Both awards came in the Best Student Paper Award Contest at the 2014 IEEE Topical Conference on Biomedical Wireless Technologies, Networks, and Sensing Systems (BioWireleSS).

Yiran Li, a doctoral electrical engineering student, won first place for her paper titled "Movement-Immune Respiration Monitoring Using Automatic DC-Correction Algorithm for CW Doppler Radar System."

Sharmi Banerjee, an August 2013 graduate with a master of science in electrical engineering, won second place for her paper titled "PXI-based Non-Contact Vital Sign Detection System."
