Title: Think Bigger: Empower Yourself to Change the World
Abstract: During this talk, I will share some of my experiences and ultimately challenge the audience to place their research into a greater context. We must actively pursue ways to innovate by expanding our thinking about how we positively impact society. I will explore how a kid from East Baltimore grew up and developed the tools, skills, and abilities to thrive in a career where he currently leverages the best technology and expertise from around the globe in order to translate ideas into solutions that solve some of the world’s most complex problems.
Bio: Dr. Charles Johnson-Bey is a Senior Vice President at Booz Allen Hamilton. He is a global leader in technology innovation and uniquely leverages the intersection of technology, strategy, and business to create & capture value, lead change and drive execution. Dr. Johnson-Bey has more than 25 years of engineering experience spanning cyber resilience, signal processing, system architecture, prototyping, and hardware. Prior to joining Booz Allen, he was a research engineer at Motorola Corporate Research Labs and Corning Incorporated and taught electrical engineering at Morgan State University. He also worked at Lockheed Martin Corporation for 17 years, where he galvanized the company’s cyber resources and led research and development activities with organizations including Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Microsoft Research, and the GE Global Research Center. He serves on the Whiting School of Engineering Advisory Board and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Advisory Committee, both at Johns Hopkins University. He is also on the Cybersecurity Institute Advisory Board for the Community College of Baltimore County. Dr. Johnson-Bey received a B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Johns Hopkins University and both an M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Delaware.
This event is co-hosted by the ECE Department and the Whiting School of Engineering.
The closing ceremonies of the Computational Sensing and Medical Robotics (CSMR) REU are set to take place Friday, August 6 from 9am until 3pm at this Zoom link. Seventeen undergraduate students from across the country are eager to share the culmination of their work for the past 10 weeks this summer.
The schedule for the day is listed below, but each presentation is featured in more detail in the program. Please invite your students and faculty, and feel free to distribute this flyer to advertise the event.
We would love for everyone to come learn about the amazing summer research these students have been conducting!
