As the new academic year begins, WNCG welcomes a new faculty member. Assistant Professor Aryan Mokhtari joins the group, having worked most recently as a Postdoctoral Associate in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at MIT. He was one of nine new faculty to join Texas ECE this fall.
The spring semester is in full swing, and as WNCG continues on the forefront of research, the group has welcomed a new Director. Prof. Constantine Caramanis began his three-year term as WNCG Director at the start of the new calendar year. Prior to that, he served as the group’s Associate Director.
With Caramanis stepping into the new role, Prof. Alex Dimakis was chosen among WNCG faculty to serve as Associate Director. WNCG’s leadership system allows the Associate Director to learn the ropes over the course of the term before serving their own term as Director.
