Alumna Mingyan Liu has been promoted to full professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of Michigan. She received her MSSE degree in 1997 and her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2000. She was advised by Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR) for both degrees.

Liu's current research interests are in resource allocation, performance analysis, and energy-efficient design of wireless, mobile ad hoc, and sensor networks.

She also received a best paper award this spring for "In-Situ Soil Moisture Sensing: Measurement Scheduling and Estimation using Compressive Sensing" at the 11th ACM/IEEE Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks. Liu wrote the paper with Xiaopei Wu, a visiting student at the time. The research considered the problem of monitoring soil moisture over time using a wireless network of underground sensors. The ultimate goal is to be able to monitor the soil moisture over time with as few measurements as possible and with a high degree of accuracy, using a technique called compressive sensing. | Read the full story on the University of Michigan website here |
