"Where Electrical Engineering Meets Biology"
Bingxin Shen, Temple University
Thursday, January 25, 2018, 4:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510
Bingxin Shen, Assistant Professor of Computer & Information Sciences at Temple University, and who earned her Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Stony Brook University, will speak on "Where Electrical Engineering Meets Biology." Dr. Shen's research in signal processing lead her to work with 2017 Nobel Laureate Joachim Frank on the determination of the structure of the Ribosome by electron microscopy. Ribosomes are the protein builders, like construction workers who connect one amino acid at a time, building them into long chains. Ribosomes are special because they are found in all living cells. Dr. Shen uses her knowledge of signal processing to study changes in the protein composition synthesized by the ribosome submitted to stress. She has been a mentor, advisor and lecturer as a member of Stony Brook University's Women in Science and Engineering (WISE).
