Pu (Perry) Wang

  • Biography

    Pu (Perry) Wang was an intern at the Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL), Cambridge, MA, in the summer of 2010. Before returning to MERL, he was a Research Scientist in the Mathematics and Modeling Department of the Schlumberger-Doll Research, Cambridge, MA, contributing to developments of logging-while-drilling Acoustics/NMR products. His current research interests include signal processing, Bayesian inference, statistical learning, and their applications to (mmWave and THz) sensing, wireless communications, networks and automotive applications. He received the IEEE Jack Neubauer Memorial Award from IEEE Vehicular Technology Society in 2013 for the paper "Multiantenna-assisted spectrum sensing for cognitive radioā€¯. He is currently an Associate Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Letters and an Associate Member of IEEE SPS Sensor Array and Multichannel (SAM) Technical Committee.

    • ST1750: THz (Terahertz) Sensing

      The Signal Processing (SP) group at MERL is seeking a highly motivated intern to conduct fundamental research in THz (Terahertz) sensing. Expertise in statistical inference, unsupervised anomaly detection, and deep learning (spatial-temporal representation learning) is required. Previous hands-on experience in THz data analysis is a plus. Familiarity with python and deep learning libraries is a must. The intern will collaborate with a small group of MERL researchers to develop novel algorithms, design experiments with collaborators, and prepare results for patents and publication. The expected duration of the internship is 3 months with a flexible start date.
