Jacqueline Schellberg Awarded the 2022 IEEE MTT-S Undergraduate Scholarship

Jacqueline Schellberg, an undergraduate student in the CSE department, has received a competitive 2022 undergraduate scholarship from the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S). She will be honored by MTT-S in June 2022 in Denver, CO.

Only 10 to 11 MTT-S undergraduate scholarships are presented worldwide each year. Past years' fellows came from Australia, Canada, China, Malaysia, Russia, and the USA. For the USA, the scholars are from top institutions, such as the University of California Los Angeles, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, University of Washington, University of Maryland - College Park, Princeton University, etc.

This undergraduate scholarship will support Schellberg's project related to handheld, through-obstruction millimeter-wave imaging on 5G smart devices. The project could enable beyond-traditional-vision applications, such as non-intrusive package inspection and mobile physical security. She has already published a conference article related to the project at the ACM UbiComp 2021.

Schellberg is a rising junior student at USC in Computer Engineering. Her research interests include millimeter-wave imaging and RF motion tracking. She is also the recipient of many other honors and awards, including the ACM UbiComp 2021 Best Poster Honorable Mention, Spring 2022 Magellan Scholar Award, and was invited to participate in the 2021 Grace Hopper Celebration Conference from the CSE department.

Schellberg works under the supervision of Dr. Sanjib Sur, Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering.

The IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) is a transnational society with more than 10,500 members and 190 chapters worldwide. This society promotes the advancement of microwave theory and its applications, including RF, microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz technologies.
