Alexandra Efimovskaya in December 2017 successfully defended her Ph.D. Thesis titled “Multi-Axis Solution for MEMS Inertial Sensors”. Congratulations to Dr. Efimovskaya!
Daryosh Vatanparvar has been awarded the Paul and Beverly Holmes Fellowship. The Fellowship Program supports graduate students doing research in the area of the Technology and Theory of Navigational and Guidance Devices for Flight Vehicles. During Fall 2017, Winter 2018, and Spring 2018, the fellowship will allow Daryosh to work on the project titled: “Demonstration of Navigation-Grade Gyroscopes with Interchangeable Operation in Rate and Rate Integrating Modalities”.
