EECS Ph.D. Students Spend the Summer at Major Telecommunications and Semiconductor Companies

Hao Chen

EECS Ph.D. student,  Hao Chen, secured a highly competitive summer intern position in Samsung Research America – Dallas. During his summer internship, Hao worked on the next generation of cellular systems under the direction of Gary Xu  and Charlie Zhang (Vice President and Lab Head of Wireless Communications Lab) in Samsung Research America – Dallas. Chen conducted research on scheduling and resource allocation in full-dimension Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (FD-MIMO) cellular systems. FD-MIMO utilizes multiple antennas placed in a 2-dimension antenna array panel to realize high-order multi-user MIMO transmissions. FD-MIMO is one of the key technologies currently studied in the 3GPP for the next generation Long-Term Evolution (LTE) systems. Chen joined EECS at KU for his Ph.D. degree under Profesor Lingjia Liu in Fall 2013. He received both his B.S. and M.S. from Xi’an Jiao Tong University. While at KU Chen has published two conference papers including the Flagship Conference of IEEE Communication SocietyIEEE GLOBECOM, and three journal papers including IEEE Trans. on Wireless Communications.

Md. Amimul Ehsan

EECS Ph.D. student, Md Amimul Ehsan, secured a highly competitive summer intern position in Intel. During his summer internship, Ehsan worked on developing a computationally efficient methodology to model the pogo pin socket electrical behavior under the direction of Zhen Zhou, Principal Engineer, Intel and Ling Liao, Senior Researcher, Intel Lab. Ehsan worked on creating and investigating multi-transmission line equivalent models for the pogo pin socket for four specific pin patterns commonly used in the package design. His main goal was to develop a new method to reduce the computational time of calculating pogo pin socket scattering parameters without sacrificing too much of the accuracy. His work makes use of Generalized Foldy-Lax to reduce the dimension of the integral from 3-D to 2-D to use computational time. Ehsan came to EECS/KU in Fall 2014 to work toward his Ph.D. under the direction of Professor Yang Yi. Ehsan got his B.S. from Khulna University of Engineering and Technology and his M.S. from the University of South Dakota. While at KU, he published three journal papers including IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Capability after he joined KU.
