Electromagnetic Innovations to Save Lives



12:00pm - 1:00pm ET


Join us for a presentation of recent outcomes in electromagnetic sensing (EMS) research.

For over two decades, the EMS research group has focused on geophysical and medical applications to help save people's lives. This talk will showcase two technologies developed at Dartmouth:

1) Remote detection and identification of subsurface unexploded ordnances, landmines, and improvised explosive devices

2) Magnetic nano-particle (MNP) hyperthermia cancer treatment.

Fridon Shubitidze

Professor Shubitidze joined Dartmouth Engineering's faculty in 2007. His research is focused on computational electromagnetics, genome sequencing, magnetic nanoparticles for cancer treatment, and unexploded ordnance detection and discrimination.

Shubitidze, a native of the Republic of Georgia, was awarded with the Medal of Honor by the country's President in 2019 for "his personal contribution in the development of science and in the creation of modern technologies." The award recognizes members of the Georgian diaspora for tehri work to advance human rights, democracy, sciences, or noble deeds.

Shubitidze is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and earned his MS in radiophysics and his PhD in physical and mathematical sciences from Tbilisi State University in Georgia.
