UW ECE assistant professor Sam Burden has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award, one of the most prestigious awards in the nation for early-career faculty.
UW’s Robotics and Controls researchers are leaders in the areas of surgical and bio-robotics, haptics, smart cities, and network control systems. They collaborate with and hold secondary appointments in computer science and engineering, bioengineering, and the UW Medical Center, and are active participants in research centers such as the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering.

A UW ECE team led by assistant professor Eli Shlizerman has created Audeo, a system that can generate music using only visual cues of someone playing the piano.
UW ECE assistant professor Lillian Ratliff recently received the Dhanani Endowed Faculty Fellowship in recognition of her outstanding work in machine learning, mathematical optimization and game theory.
A team of multiple organizations, including the UW and UW ECE spinout Wibotic, plans to develop a line of lightweight, ultrafast wireless chargers that could help both humans and robots live and work on the moon.
Iyer's impressive work in radio device miniaturization and insect tagging was recently highlighted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
This endowment was established in 2019 by Ganesh and Hema Moorthy to recruit, reward and retain UW ECE faculty members who have demonstrated significant promise early in their careers.
