For his fall 2016 TA efforts, he received one of the four Outstanding Graduate ECE Teaching Assistant Awards for 2016-2017. He is a full-time graduate ECE student in the Decision, Information and Communication Systems (DICE) curriculun track.

Research areas: millimeter wave communication systems with low-resolution data converters

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 Decision, Information and Communication Systems (DICE) curriculun track.

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

Faris Mismar received his BSECE degree from the University of Jordan in 2004, MSECE degree from The Universtiy of Texas at Dallas in 2011, and MBA degree from The Universtiy of Texas at Dallas in 2014. He completed his MSECE and MBA degrees while working full time. From April 2009 to November 2017, he worked as a cellular communication systems engineer at Ericsson in Dallas, Texas. Prior April 2009, he worked for 6 months at AT&T and 3½ years at Motorola. Since fall 2015, Faris has been enrolled for part-time PhD ECE studies at UT Austin on the Decision, Information and Communication Systems (DICE) curriculun track. In 2016, we received a $60,000 Marcus Wallenberg Foundation Fellowship for his PhD studies. Since March 2018, he has been working full-time as a Senior Manager in Technology Development at Reliance Jio Infocomm USA in Dallas, Texas.

Research areas: wireless networks; machine learning

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 full-time PhD student at UT Austin since fall 2015 on Decision, Information and Communication Systems (DICE) curriculun track.
