Doctoral Student Wins Chorafas Foundation Award
Congratulations to ECE doctoral student Qianyi Zhao, who has been selected as a winner
of the 2013 Chorafas Foundation Award. The Swiss-based Chorafas Foundation gives scientific
awards to doctoral students worldwide who are under 30 years old and are doing outstanding
dissertation research in selected fields of life sciences and/or sustainability.
The goal of the awards is to reward exceptional research performance and to encourage
significant future contributions to practical, applied science fields. Mr. Zhao's current
project uses radar to measure forest biomass, aiming to increase the accuracy of
microwave forest models by studying the radar response from a single tree.
