Steve DiStasi, a UVM CEMS graduate in Electrical Engineering (BS'06, MS'08), was invited to present a Keynote Address entitled, "Scalable, Synchronized, Energy Harvesting Wireless Sensor Networks," at the IEEE - Prognostics & System Health Management Conference held in Macau, China on January 12-14, 2010.

While at the UVM College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS), Steve worked in the area of wireless sensor networks under the advisement of Dr. Jeff Frolik.

"His research at UVM encompassed embedded systems programming, instrument control, and wireless channel characterization," says Frolik. "Given his skill set, I'm not surprised he's now representing his company, MicroStrain, Inc. of Williston, VT, at this event."

Congratulations, Steve!
