    Speaker: Dominique Duncan, PhD., Assistant Professor of Neurology, BME and USC Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics

    Talk Title: Large-scale data archives and analytic tools for neurological disorders

    Abstract: The Epilepsy Bioinformatics Study for Antiepileptogenic Therapy (EpiBioS4Rx) is a multi-site, international collaboration including a parallel study of humans and an animal model, collecting MRI, EEG, and blood samples. The development of epilepsy after traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a multifactorial process and crosses multiple modalities. Without a full understanding of the underlying biological effects, there are currently no cures for epilepsy. This study aims to address both issues, calling upon data generated and collected at sites spread worldwide among different laboratories, clinical sites, in different formats, and across multicenter preclinical trials. Before these data can even be analyzed, a central platform is needed to standardize these data and provide tools for searching, viewing, annotating, and analyzing them. We have built a centralized data archive that will allow the broader research community to access these shared data in addition to analytic tools to identify and validate biomarkers of epileptogenesis in imaging and electrophysiology as well as in molecular, serological, and tissue data. Besides EpiBioS4Rx, we have also developed other large-scale multimodal data archives, including the Data Archive for the BRAIN Initiative (DABI) and the COVID-19 Data Archive (COVID-ARC) to encourage collaboration and expedite research in these areas.



    Biography: Dominique Duncan is an assistant professor of Neurology, Neuroscience, and Biomedical Engineering at the USC Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute in the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI) at the University of Southern California. Dr. Duncan's background spans mathematics, engineering, and neuroscience. She received her PhD at Yale University in Electrical Engineering where she analyzed intracranial EEG data using nonlinear factor analysis to identify preseizure states of epilepsy patients. Dr. Duncan is funded through both the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). She has built international, multidisciplinary collaborations and developed novel analytic tools to analyze multimodal data, including imaging and electrophysiology, particularly in the areas of traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, and COVID-19. By creating large-scale data repositories and linking them with analytic, visualization, and quality control tools for multimodal data, her work aims to encourage collaboration across multiple fields.

    Speaker: Subhanshu Gupta, Washington State University

    Talk Title: Redefining Scalable Arrays using Bandwidth, Aperture, and Temperature for Next-Generation Wireless Networks

    Series: Integrated Systems

    Abstract: Emerging millimeter-wave and sub-THz communications promises to address the bandwidth limitations faced at sub-6GHz bands. Communications at this higher frequency however requires multiple antennas to compensate for propagation loss resulting in pointed beams. Conditional on the link being established, these beams provide wide bandwidths. However, these links can be short-lived for users with high mobility necessitating energy-efficiency and low-latency direction-finding approaches. These challenges necessitate rethink of multi-antenna radio front-ends for them to not only synergistically work with the digital signal processor but also satisfy new features meeting the energy- and spectral-efficiencies.
    This talk will present recent research in true-time-delay based spatial signal processors to enable fast direction finding as well as wideband data communications for mobile communication applicable to sub-6GHz and millimeter-wave frequencies. Leveraging nanoseconds of delay ranges with picosecond resolutions, we describe true-time-delay based phased arrays capable of handling wide fractional bandwidths and enabling fast link discovery while maximizing the spectral- and energy-efficiencies. Pursuant to this, we will elaborate on interference-mitigation techniques in congested and contested networks that are critical for high energy- and spectral efficiencies. We will conclude this talk highlighting ongoing research on optimization of joint communications and wideband sensing, and temperature-scalable arrays that can potentially transform emerging wireless and space communications harnessing conjoined operations at room- and ultra-low-temperatures.

    Biography: Subhanshu Gupta received his Ph.D. from the University of Washington in 2010. Before joining the electrical engineering and computer science at Washington State University as an Assistant Professor in 2015, he worked in the radio frequency group at MaxLinear Inc. from 2011 to 2014. He is currently an Associate Professor at WSU.

    Subhanshu serves on the editorial boards for IEEE TCAS-1 (2019-present) and IEEE RFIC TPC since 2021. He has also been a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2019, Cisco Faculty Award in 2017, and Defense Research Instrumentation Awards (DURIP) in 2020. His research interests lie in wideband energy-efficient next-generation wireless / wired communications, stochastic optimization, and temperature-scalable electronics.
