Shangyi Chen


Shangyi is a Ph.D. student at the Department

of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Her 

research focuses on the design of

microbolometers using phase-change materials

(PCM) for millimeter wave (mmW) imaging. She 

earned her B.S. degree from Huazhong University

of Science and Technology in Wuhan, China in

July 2014, and M.S. degree from University of

Missouri-Columbia (MU) in May 2016. 


Ken Henderson


Kendrick received his B.S. of Electrical

Engineering (2015), B.S. of Computer

Engineering (2015), and M.S. of Electrical

Engineering (2017) from the University of South

Alabama. His previous research includes novel

MS with Thesis


Kyoung Ho Jeong


Kyoung Ho (Albert) is an M.S. student of RF

Microsystems Laboratory in ESL at the Ohio

State University. He will graduate this fall semester

of 2017 and continue doing research as a Ph.D.

student during the 2018 spring semester. Kyoung

Ho was born in Seoul, Republic of Korea and he

graduated from Chung-Ang University with a B.S.

degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

in 2014. He is interested in manufacturing RF

components, such as antennas and lenses. He is

also expertized at using full-wave simulation

program, HFSS. He has an experience of

fabricating the lens using 3D-printer and, 

experience in measuring antennas and lenses at

an anechoic chamber several times. After his

graduation as M.S student, he will begin research

in “Suspended High-gain Millimeter-wave Antenna

Arrays: Hybrid Fabrication using MEMS and

3D-Printer Technologies”.
