Women @ Work: Developing Detroit, featuring Jennette Smith of Crain's Detroit Business
October 26 2016 at 3:00 PM
McGregor Memorial Conference Center
Hosted by the Mike Ilitch School of Business Institute for Leadership and Diversity (ILEAD), Women @ Work: Developing Detroit is the first in a series of events targeted to help WSU women explore, establish, advance their careers. Women @ Work: Developing Detroit is presented by Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW).  Women are helping to develop Detroit, playing key roles – as managers, engineers, architects, marketers, attorneys, technologists, accountants, financial professionals and more – in revitalizing the look and feel of the city's commercial and residential infrastructure.  At this event, network and be inspired by accomplished women eager to share stories and insight about exciting career opportunities that you may never have considered in commercial real estate.  The keynote address will be delivered by Jennette Smith, editor of Crain's Detroit Business. It will be followed by a roundtable discussion with influential CREW professionals in a wide variety of development-related disciplines. CREW is the premier professional organization dedicated to advancing the success of women in commercial real estate. Founded in 1986, CREW Detroit is an organization of more than 180 professional women in a growing national network of more than 8,000 professional women in 66 chapters across the United States and Canada.  Don't miss this ILEAD event, which will include information about  internship opportunities and scholarships, free headshot photos, gift bags and more. Seating is limited, so reserve your spot early by emailing ilead@wayne.edu.

NANO@Wayne Seminar: "Nanoelectronics: Merging Electronics with Ionics"
November 1 2016 at 2:30 PM
Undergraduate Library, David Adamany
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the Nano@Wayne seminar on Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at 2:30 p.m to 4:00 p.m. in Bernath Auditorium of the David Adamany Undergraduate Library. The seminar is free and open to the public; registration is requested. The Nano@Wayne Seminar Series presents, "Nanoelectronics: Merging Electronics with Ionics" with Wei Lu, University of Michigan. Wei Lu is a Professor at the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, and Director of the Lurie Nanofabrication facility at UM. He received B.S. degree in physics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1996, and Ph.D. in physics from Rice University, Houston, TX in 2003. From 2003 to 2005, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. His research interest includes high-density memory based on two-terminal resistive switches (RRAM), memristor-based neuromorphic circuits, aggressively scaled nanowire transistors, and electrical transport in low-dimensional systems. Abstract: I will discuss our efforts on the development and optimization of memristor devices and integrated systems, including techniques of controlling the dynamic ionic migration processes and associated modeling efforts. Detailed TEM studies have been carried out to capture the ionic migration process and verify the switching mechanism. Functional high-density crossbar arrays have been integrated directly on top of CMOS circuits using a back-end-of-line (BEOL) process, enabling hybrid non-volatile memory and reconfigurable circuit applications. Properly tuned devices also exhibit incremental conductance changes that are analogous to the behaviors of biological synapses and are well suited for hardware-based, bio-inspired neuromorphic logic systems. Prototype neuromorphic circuits based on memristor arrays have been shown to be able to perform tasks such as pattern recognition in an unsupervised fashion for intelligent sensing, analysis and other data-intensive applications. A short reception will immediately follow the seminar.
