Graduate Students

The graduate student office is located in 2413 CIEMAS. The lab is located across the hall in 2410 CIEMAS.

Itay Cnaan-on

Itay Cnaan-On received his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Tel-Aviv University in 2010 (emphasis on signal-processing, communication and computers). He is currently a Ph.D. student of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the SAM lab in Duke University. He is a fellow of the NSF IGERT WISeNet (Wireless Intelligent Sensor Networks) program. Before joining the lab, he served as a project manager and leader of a real-time SW development team in a company developing wireless smart home systems and sensors. His research interests are: array signal processing, ultra-wideband systems, sensor networks and localization.

Li Li

Li Li joined the Ph.D. program in 2009. As a senior research assistant in the Sensor Array and Multipath Signal Processing Lab, his research interests include statistical sensor array signal modeling and processing with an emphasis on low SNR radar target imaging, detection and tracking in dense multipath environments. He received a BS degree in Communications Engineering from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in 2009, followed by a MS degree in Electrical Engineering from Duke University in 2011.

Jon Soli

Jon joined the SAM lab as a Ph.D. student in 2012. As an undergraduate, Jon received a B.S. in Physics and B.A. in Business Management from Hamline University in 2012. At SAM, he is working on the Continuous Active Sonar (CAS) waveform design project and has developed high-fidelity underwater acoustic simulations of the lab's Slow-Time Costas-Coded (SLO-CO) waveform using the Sonar Simulation Toolset (SST). Outside of the lab Jon enjoys golfing, running, and attending Duke basketball games.
