ECE alumnus Protagoras "Tag" Cutchis was named to Baltimore magazine's list of the fifteen "Most Intriguing Baltimoreans" in its December 2007 issue.

Cutchis was cited for his scientific accomplishments, including his recent inclusion in Scientific American's prestigious "SA 50" list for a biomedical prosthetics device he developed that may enable amputees to communicate reflexive movements simply by thinking about them. He also received the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory Invention of the Year award in the Physical Sciences category for this innovation.

Cutchis is a University of Maryland alumnus four times over. He received a B.S. in electrical engineering and a B.S. in physics in 1979, an M.S. in electrical engineering in 1990, and an M.D. from the University of Maryland Medical School in 1983. He is a licensed physician in the state of Maryland, and has extensive experience in hardware and software design of real time embedded systems as well as low power digital and analog circuit design. Dr. Cutchis is also experienced in biocompatibility issues, biomedical and chemical sensor design, as well as medical device requirements definition. He holds six patents, has published over 20 research papers and journal articles, and is a member of IEEE.
