Hi, my name is Cadem Jeremy Mickelson and I am six and a half years old. My favorite colors are green, blue, and yellow, I have a little sister, Ruby, and my favorite food is salmon. I love technology (I got that from my dad) and I also love to cook (I got that from my mom). I can make quesadillas and scrambled eggs all by myself! I have a great memory (also from mom) and because of that, I am very good at math. I can add and multiply!
As finals approached and anxieties rose, there was a desperate need for respite. Luckily, the ECEn department came to the rescue. Even with the threat of inclement weather, we had a great turnout at our annual Department IEEE Picnic last Thursday. Our dear secretaries looked on as the wind dispersed our flyers and swag across the pavilion. We were all grateful for the hot chocolate and sunny dispositions that kept us warm. The smoke was thick, but so were the patties that Dr. Jeffs and Dr. Beard served valiantly as grill masters.
Dr. Joshua Mangelson is coming to us from his one-year post-doc in the Field of Robotics Center at Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Mangelson is an alumnus of BYU and the University of Michigan. When he was here as an undergraduate student, he was the digital lab director and a teaching assistant for ECEN 220 (Fundamentals of Digital Systems) and ECEN 320 (Digital System Design). He also did research with Dr. Nelson in the Configurable Computing Lab and was a TA in the Math Lab.
