Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Ph.D. student George Zaki has been selected as a Texas Instruments (TI) Scholar. He is an advisee of Professor Shuvra Bhattacharyya.

The TI Scholars program was made possible by a gift from Texas Instruments through the ECE Corporate Affiliates and Clark School Corporate Partners program. Each year, Texas Instruments supports talented graduate students in electrical and computer engineering with a tuition grant, stipend, and benefits through the TI Scholars program. TI Scholars work on selected research topics related to their area of study. George Zaki will conduct research in Acoustics, Signal Processing, and Computer Engineering.

Zaki's research interests so far have focused on the efficient implementation of digital signal processing (DSP) systems, using dataflow models to analyze and implement DSP systems. Before coming to the University of Maryland, he was ranked at the top 1% of his class and was awarded a teaching assistantship at the American University in Cairo.

For more information about the Texas Instruments Scholars program, the ECE Corporate Affiliates program, and the Clark School Corporate Partners program, please contact Director of External Relations Ted Knight at teknight@umd.edu.
