Md Mehedi Farhad, a graduate student in electrical and computer engineering from Bangladesh, stands on a chair to adjust equipment as he assists Electrical and Computer Engineering Assistant Professor Mehmet Kurum with a research project on MSU's intramural fields. Kurum is one of the lead faculty members for the Information Processing and Sensing (IMPRESS) Lab. Outfitted with an array of high-powered equipment, the lab conducts basic and applied research on the design, build and experimentation of sensing systems. In particular, the lab focuses on smartphone sensing in the emerging branch of "Signals of Opportunity," which aims to expand applications and capabilities of remote sensing.
