Sabancı University Electronic Engineering Program 2009 alumni and University of Boston professor Rabia Tuğçe Yazıcıgil’s studies in association with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) were featured in Nature Symposium and IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference - ISSCC 2020.
Yazıcıgil delivered the opening remarks of Nature Symposium held by Springer and Nature on February 6, 2020 in Madrid. Yazıcıgil's joint efforts with MIT were featured in the conference titled "Biomimetic Sensors: Use and potential in the medical industry” and published in the Spanish press (Innovaspain, en24, elcomercio, hoy).
Graduate Yazıcıgil’s latest work with MIT on the cryptographic "tag of everything" was published in MIT News and IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference - ISSCC 2020, one of the most prestigious integrated circuit conferences worldwide. To combat supply chain counterfeiting, which can cost companies billions of dollars annually, Yazıcıgil and MIT researchers have invented a cryptographic ID tag that’s small enough to fit on virtually any product and verify its authenticity.
