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 Acoustic/NMR products. His current research interests include statistical signal processing, Bayesian inference, sparse signal recovery, and their applications to sensing, wireless communications, and networks. He received the Conrad Schlumberger Award for Technical Depth from the Schlumberger REMS NAM Reservoir Symposium in 2015, and the IEEE Jack Neubauer Memorial Award for the best systems paper published by the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society in 2013.

    • EC1068: Millimeter-wave and Terahertz Sensing

      The Electronics and Communications (EC) group at MERL is seeking a highly motivated intern to conduct research work on Millimeter-wave (mmWave) and Terahertz (THz) sensing. The ideal candidate is expected to have extensive experience in signal acquisition, active sensing, and signal processing. Familiarity with sparse signal recovery and optimization is a plus. Hands-on experience with mmWave imaging and Terahertz sensing (e.g., spectroscopy) systems is an asset. The intern will collaborate with MERL researchers to develop novel sensing algorithms, conduct experiments, and prepare results for publication. The expected duration of the internship is 3 months with flexible start date.
