September Meeting --Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011

The Discovery and Development of Secure Wireless Control

About the Program:

Join us as we learn about the discovery and development of secure wireless control. As wireless networks become the norm for individuals, see why industry must approach wireless controls with caution.l This is a joint meeting with the local chapter of The Society of Women Engineers.

About the Speakers:

Maria Baker
Maria Baker is an electrical engineer graduating Magna Cum Laude with Honors from Cleveland State University. Ms. Baker has performed considerable research in autonomous robotic swarms and is currently engaged in graduate research in the areas of advanced active disturbance rejection controls, and power conversion systems specific to the integration of photovoltaic arrays (solar power) into an unbalanced power grid. Ms. Baker also has significant industry experience in a variety of areas including thermal and photometric characterization of light emitting diodes and product reliability testing. Ms. Baker currently serves as a Technical Advisor in electrical arts with Frisina, LLC.
