REU Site: Sensor, Signal and Information Processing (SenSIP) Devices and Algorithms
PIs: A. Spanias and J. Blain Christen
This fourth-year REU site will be hosted at the ASU main campus and will recruit nine undergraduate students per year in the summer for nine weeks. The Sensor, Signal and Information Processing (SenSIP) Devices and Algorithms REU will provide integrative research experiences at the overlap of sensor device design and algorithm development. Most of the projects will be under the auspices of the Sensor Signal and Information Processing (SenSIP) center which is an Arizona Board of Regents program that also has a Phase 2 Industry/ University Cooperative Research Center site of NCSS (award 1540040). SenSIP and the Co-PIs collaborate closely with several faculties whose labs are central to the research theme of this REU site. This REU benefits from experiences gained from prior REU, REV and RET supplements of SenSIP which have produced research publications, presentations and publications, and a patent pre-disclosure.
REU Site Objectives
a) introduce students to general research practices by immersing them in research activities;
b) engage students in the integrated design of sensor devices and DSP and machine learning methods;
c) motivate REU students to innovate, pursue research careers, and attend graduate school;
d) provide cross-cutting training: presentations skills, patent and publication preparations;
e) provide strong experiences in multidisciplinary research.

Due to the severity of the Covid-19 crisis, we are regretfully cancelling the Summer 2020 REU program.
We plan to run the REU program in the summer of 2021. Application forms will become available in January 2021.
