The College of Engineering is pleased to announce the hiring of four new faculty members. Dr. Liang Du , Dr. Shivayogi Hiremath , Dr. Albert Kim, and Dr. Ze Wang have joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as Assistant Professors. For Dr. Hiremath and Dr. Wang, these are secondary appointments.


Dr. Du joins with some industry experience to go along with his Ph.D. from Georgia Tech in 2013. He has previously worked at Philips Research, Mitsubishi Electric Research, and Schlumberger. His research interests focus on power systems, including the grids, modeling, and distribution of electricity.

Dr. Hiremath already serves as an assistant professor at Temple's College of Public Health. He pairs undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering with professional degrees in rehabilitation science from the University of Pittsburgh. His work focuses on feedback technologies that improve quality of life for the disabled.

After earning all three college degrees from Purdue University, capped by a Ph.D. in 2015, Dr. Kim spent time working at Intel as a research and development engineer. His research is centered on biomedical applications of micro and nanotechnology. This includes a variety of device and microsystems to address important clinical problems. He collaborated closely with physicians in order to transfer the technology to the clinic.

Dr. Wang currently holds a position in the radiology department at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine, where he is a research associate professor. He earned his Ph.D. in 2003 from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He developed software packages as part of post-doc research.
