A University of Missouri engineering student’s research has received support from the world’s largest technical professional organization. Omiya Hassan was one of three recipients from around the globe to receive a Graduate Fellowship Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Instrumentation & Measurement Society (IMS).
“It gives me a huge confidence boost in my research,” said Hassan, who is in her third year of the doctoral program in electrical engineering. “Now I know what I’m doing has a significant impact on society. I’m doing something for the betterment of society, which aligns with the goal I came here with.”
The award and grant funding will support Hassan’s dissertation and research around using machine learning and artificial intelligence to detect sleep apnea. She and her research team are determining how to create different types of low-power machine learning models that can be embedded in digital hardware.
