Travel Awards 2018
As Editor-in-Chief of Electronics, I am pleased to announce the two winners of the 2018 Travel Awards sponsored by Electronics.
The awards were granted to Mr. Spyridon-Nektarios Daskalakis, Ph.D. students of Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh UK, and Dr. Yao-Feng Chang, a postdoctoral fellow at The University of Texas at Austin, USA. The awards consist of 800 Swiss Francs each to support attendance at any academic conference in 2018.
Mr. Spyridon-Nektarios Daskalakis’s current research interests include low-cost wireless sensor networks and RF energy harvesting. In particular, he focuses on backscatter radio communication, batteryless sensors, PCB design, low-cost software-defined radio, environmental sensing and RF energy harvesting.
Dr. Yao-Feng Chang focuses on three topics: (1) SiOx- and SiNx-based ReRAM fabrication, characterization, and mechanism understanding. (2) Stateful Boolean logic and synaptic Post-Moore computing, and bio-inspiration biomimetic systems in electronic devices. (3) Selector integration for large-scale low-power array design.
Electronics is proud to support these young researchers working in the field of electronics and wish them further success in their careers. We are grateful to all who submitted applications—thank you for letting us get to know you and your work. We hope all of you continue to pay attention to Electronics in the future.
