"In November, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awarded Dartmouth engineering professor Eric Fossum at the Annual Technology and Engineering Emmys for his pioneering work on a pixel image sensor that is now widely used in many cell phone cameras and webcams," reported The Dartmouth. "Fossum received his Bachelor of Science degree in physics and engineering from Trinity College and his PhD and Masters of Engineering and Applied Science at Yale University. He has also worked at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and founded two tech companies, Photobit and GigaJot. In addition to his teaching and research, Fossum is the director of Dartmouth's PhD Innovation Program and vice provost for the office of entrepreneurship and technology transfer. Fossum's research has led him to receive several other prizes, including the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering. The Dartmouth sat down with Fossum to discuss his career path and the significance of his research."
