Meet the new ESL Director and learn about microwave remote sensing research
January 29 @ 6:00 pm
Join us for an evening of OSU ECE camaraderie, networking and learning more about the great research coming out of The Ohio State University Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
We have enjoyed Prof. Joel Johnson’s support for our events during his tenure as ECE Department Chair, so it is fitting that we should see the “other side” of Prof. Johnson by getting exposed to his research activities. Located out of the ElectroScience Lab, Prof. Johnson has a variety of research related to utilizing microwave remote sensing to assist in measuring a variety of environmental factors, from Ice Sheet Subsurface Temperature Sensing to sea surface thermal emission and hydrodynamics. Most recently, he has spearheaded groundbreaking capability to remove the microwave interference generated on Earth (https://ece.osu.edu/news/2018/10/cuberrt-little-satellite-could) to assist in these measurements.
In addition, while we are at the ESL, we will have the opportunity to meet the new ESL Director, Dr. Richard Ridgway
(https://ece.osu.edu/news/2018/09/electroscience-laboratory-welcomes-new-director-richard-ridgway). We will get to know Dr. Ridgway and hear his plans for continuing and expanding the esteemed reputation of the ElectroScience Lab.
6–6:30 p.m.: Refreshments and mingling
6:30–7 p.m.: Meet Dr. Richard Ridgeway, new ESL Director
7–7:30 p.m.: Prof. Joel Johnson overview of research activities
