  • Alfred E.Mann Department of Biomedical Engineering - Seminar series

    Fri, Sep 15, 2023 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Alfred E. Mann Department of Biomedical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Cristina Zavaleta, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering - USC

    Talk Title: \"One Little Inspiration Is at the Heart of All Creation: My Academic Journey\"

    Abstract: Dr. Zavaleta was born and raised in a small border town in South Texas, near Mexico. She received her Bachelors degree in Nuclear Medicine at the University of Incarnate Word, a small private university in San Antonio. After graduating, she started in the Medical Physics graduate program at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio where she focused on utilizing radioactive nanoparticles for the treatment of ovarian cancer. After receiving her Ph.D., she began a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University under the guidance of Dr. Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, where she helped pioneer a new molecular imaging strategy that utilizes Raman nanoparticles for cancer detection. She is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California in the department of Biomedical Engineering. Her lab focuses on providing physicians with new nano-based molecular imaging tools to improve cancer detection and treatment.

  • MHI ISSS Seminar - Dr. Roxann Broughton-Blanchard, Friday, 9/15 at 2pm in EEB 248

    Fri, Sep 15, 2023 @ 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Roxann Broughton-Blanchard, Sr. Manager RF Design, Advanced Data Converters, Analog Device, USA

    Talk Title: RF Integrated Systems: Antenna-to-Computation

    Series: Integrated Systems

    Abstract: For decades, expanding wireless capacity has been driven by advances in RF IC technology towards the most efficient use of electromagnetic spectrum. Smaller, faster silicon devices have enabled the calibrations and DSP required for complex channel coding, pushing lower-frequency wireless systems close to the Shannon limit of capacity. The advent of SiGe BiCMOS and fine line RF CMOS has extended RF signal processing to 100 GHz and beyond, expanding the usable electromagnetic spectrum and wireless data capacity. Advanced materials have given rise to single-function superstar LNA\'s, switches and PA\'s to efficiently interface with the antenna, the highest performing now well beyond 100 GHz. Today with 5G beamforming, communication system technologies have borrowed from and converged with mature radar
    technologies, and the wireless connectivity universe is expanding even more rapidly. But this expansion of the data capacity in the airwaves has pushed us up against the bottleneck of processing and off-loading data in the wired world. To take full advantage of the potential of these RF IC technologies, next-generation integrated systems must adopt a more holistic approach to optimize not just the entire signal chain, but the entire data chain. A system that was once defined from the antenna to bits and back again, must now be defined from antenna to computation and back again, including the algorithms and software required to drive complex RF SoCs. This talk will look at the evolution of the RF ICs that comprise a typical communication system, their connectivity to each other, their intersection with the RF transceivers of today, and the future challenges and opportunities awaiting the next generation of integrated system designers.

    Biography: Roxann R. Broughton-Blanchard (M\'99) received the B.S. degree from the University of Vermont, Burlington, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, in 1989, 1994, and 1999, respectively, all in
    engineering. Her Ph.D. research focused on GaAs and InP microwave device performance and reliability, with seminal work on the impact of hydrogen on devices fabricated with Ti/Pt/Au gates. She joined Analog Devices Inc (ADI) in 1999 where she has pursued RFIC design in SiGe BiCMOS and RF CMOS technologies for the Mobile Communications and WIFR markets. Since 2018 she has led the RF design team for some of ADI\'s most advanced Direct-
    Conversion RF Transceivers and SoCs. Her current research interests are in the area of high performance RF SoC integration through advanced packaging and heterogeneous integration, with emphasis on performance optimization of the full system solution. Dr. Broughton-Blanchard holds 3 patents and has published over
    25 refereed papers through the IEEE and ADI internal conferences, with multiple Best Paper awards. She currently serves on the RFIC Technical Program Committee and will be the 2024 sub-committee chair for Wireless Radios and Systems-on- Chip.
