Mr. Yu Yang, PhD student in the LIMBS laboratory, has received multiple TA awards, including the Whiting School of Engineering Teaching Assistant Award and the Creel Family Teaching Award in Mechanical Engineering, the latter of which puts him in the company of multiple LIMBS lab members (Di Cao, Brian Woronowicz, and Shahin Lashkari). Congrats, Yu!
Saba Zerefa, a visiting summer REU student from Harvard, presented her work entitled “Making Sense: Decoding active sensing via tracking behavior in weakly electric fish” for the annual LCSR REU program presentations on Friday August 5, 2022.
Michael Wilkinson and Bharath Krishnan were both awarded prestigious Doctoral Fellowships from the Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Institute. Michael’s project is supervised by Prof. Cowan and co-supervised by Prof. Cindy Moss (PBS Dept) and Barath’s primary advisor is James Knierim (Neuroscience Dept.) and co-supervised by Prof. Cowan.
It is my pleasure to announce that Di Cao was chosen as a recipient of the JHU Department of Mechanical Engineering’s Creel Family Teaching Assistant Award for the 2020-2021 academic year. Congratulations!
Anoop Bhat conducted an outstanding summer research project on localizing weakly electric fish using a grid of electrodes, building on a published paper and published dataset in our lab. His project and outstanding presentation earned him first place in the 2020 REU LCSR Presentation Awards. He joins a long list of LIMBS Lab REU students to win or get second place at these awards.
- Christopher Yang received the LINK Foundation Fellowship for Modeling, Simulation, and Training for the second year in a row!
- Michael Wilkinson received Honorable Mention for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship!
