CSE is launching a new series of interviews called CSE Spotlight where we go behind the scenes to get more insight into some of the notable happenings and people within the department. Learn stories such as how Dr. Josh Siegel turned an idea about using RFID tags to detect diaper wetness into an IEEE Sensors Journal best paper for 2020 and how Dr. Emily Dolson pivoted her research into developing a new device for small hospitals to disinfect PPE for reuse when the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March of 2020.
