Professor Pamela Abshire (ECE/ISR) has been elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, effective Jan. 1, 2018. Her citation reads, "For contributions to CMOS biosensors."
Abshire's research interests are in CMOS biosensors; adaptive integrated circuits (ICs) and IC sensors; hybrid microsystems incorporating CMOS, MEMS, optoelectronics, microfluidics, and biological components; low power mixed-signal ICs for a variety of applications, including cell-based sensing, high performance imaging, miniature robotics, spike sorting, adaptive data conversion, and closed loop control of MEMS and microfluidic systems.
Most recently, she and her colleagues Karen Bradley (Dance), Adrianne Fang (Theatre), Brad Hatfield (Kinesiology), and Jonathan Simon (ECE/ISR/BIO) received a 2017 seed grant from the University of Maryland's Brain and Behavior Initiative for Dance and EEG: Neural correlates of expressive movement.
Abshire was promoted to full Professor by University of Maryland President Wallace Loh this spring. She was one of the organizers of the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS), held May 28-31, 2017 in Baltimore.
