Ph.D. Students of Prof. Brian L. Evans

Hugo Andrade received his BSECE (1987) and MSECE (1989) degrees from The University of Texas at Austin. Since 1989, he has been working in a full-time position at National Instruments, where he is currently with NI Labs in Berkeley, CA.

Research areas: System-level design automation, system reliability

Marcus DeYoung received his BS Computer Engineering and Telecommunications degree from the University of Pennsylvania and his MS degree in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in May 2007. He brings with him several years of full-time work experience in the design and real-time embedded implementation of signal and image processing systems. He enrolled at UT Austin in Fall 2005. In Fall 2005, he was a teaching assistant for Senior Design Projects course. In the Summers of 2006 and 2007, he returned to work at Zeta Associates in Fairfax, Virginia, on a full-time basis. From 2008 to 2015, he worked full-time at Zeta Associates. In 2015, he co-founded InPhase Research in Fairfax, Virginia. He is a part-time graduate ECE student in the Communications, Networks, and Systems (CommNetS) curriculum track.

Research areas: distributed signal processing; wireless sensor networks; blind source separation

Debarati Kundu received her BSEE degree in Spring 2010 from Jadavpur University. In spring 2011, spring 2015 and fall 215, she was a research assistant. In other fall/spring semesters, she has been a teaching assistant at UT Austin for either EE 445S Real-Time Digital Signal Processing Laboraory or EE 360C Algorithms. She had held summer internships at Freescale Semiconductor (Austin, TX) Nokia Research Center (Berkeley, CA), and Qualcomm Research (Bangaluru, India). She is a full-time graduate ECE student in the Communications, Networks, and Systems (CommNetS) curriculum track.

Research areas: visual quality assessment for synthetic images

Junmo Sung received BSEE degrees from Kyungpook National University (2008) and The University of Texas at Dallas (2010) through dual enrollment. During his summer 2010 internship, he conducted mean opinion score (MOS) tests for development of an objective image quality assessment method for 3DTV. He received his MSEE degree from The University of Texas at Dallas (2012). For his MS thesis, he analyzed quantization error generated by ADCs in multi-input multi-output (MIMO) radar imaging. From 2012 to 2015, he worked for National Unstruments in Seoul, South Korea, where he designed and implemented a real-time frequency division MIMO receiver on an FPGA and where he conducted research on 5G cellular communication systems. He has been a PhD student at UT Austin since fall 2015.

Research areas: smart grid communications
