Xiaoye Chen, a PhD student in electrical engineering, has been awarded a 2014 ASNT Student Travel Reimbursement Grant. As a recipient of this grant, she receives free registration to this year’s American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) Research Symposium in Minneapolis, MN and up to $1,000 in reimbursable expenses. She is one of fifteen students nationwide to receive this award, and will be recognized during the Symposium at the Annual Research Council Dinner on Tuesday, March 25, 2014. With the support of this grant, students will:
- Network with nondestructive evaluation (NDE) researchers from around the globe
- Make career connections with researchers, engineers, inspectors and equipment makers
- Attend sessions on emerging NDE technologies and trends to increase their knowledge base
- Develop professional skills
- Learn how the academic and research communities come together with industry
Xiaoye is a member of the Laboratory of Electromagnetic and Acoustic Imaging and Prognostics (LEAP) and is working with Yiming Deng, assistant professor of electrical engineering, on innovative electromagnetic imaging sensors for materials characterization and nondestructive evaluation. Her current research interests span from sensor development and prototyping, computational electromagnetics and image processing.
