Two New Faculty Members Join Department


Amy Bell

Amy Bell has joined the faculty as an assistant professor. A specialist in signal processing, Bell's research interests include phase retrieval and the investigation of wavelets and multirate signal processing techniques for digital communication systems.

Bell earned her B.S. in industrial engineering and her MSEE from the University of Pittsburgh. Her Ph.D. in EE was awarded in 1997 from the University of Michigan, where she won an outstanding teaching award.

Before returning to graduate school, Bell worked as an engineer for Westinghouse Electric Corporation, where she was involved in discrete event simulation models for various manufacturing applications. She also worked as a manufacturing engineer in radar assembly and printed circuit board assembly, and has been involved in the design and evaluation of semiconductor wafer fabrication manufacturing systems.


Sanjay Raman

Sanjay Raman has joined the faculty as an assistant professor. A specialist in antennas and receivers for sensor and communications applications, his integrated research interests include microwave/millimeter-wave circuits and antennas, high-speed/mixed signal ICs and packaging, micromachining, and solid-state technology.

Raman received his BSEE from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and his master's and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Michigan in 1993 and 1997, respectively. Prior to joining the graduate program at Michigan, Raman served as nuclear trained submarine officer in the U.S. Navy. He is a 1988 graduate of the Naval Nuclear Power School in Orlando, Florida.
