I want to express my deepest condolences to everyone for the loss of our beloved friend and colleague Barry M. Gross, who was a professor of electrical engineering. His demise came as a shock to all of us. On December 27, 2022, Barry passed away at Mount Sinai West Hospital in the company of family and coworkers. Barry got his master’s degree in 1988 and his PhD in 1992 from the CCNY Department of Electrical Engineering. In 1993, he went back and joined the electrical engineering faculty.
He demonstrated unshakable devotion to the College, his students, and his research and scholarship during his time there. Over 15 PhD students, many master’s and undergraduate students, as well as a number of postdoctoral research associates were all supervised or co-mentored by him.
Through his research, Barry made significant scholarly contributions in the areas of photonics engineering, optical communications, and remote sensing. He was deeply dedicated to his teaching and was well-known for going out of his way to support his students in and out of the classroom. All those whose lives Barry impacted as well as the field of electrical engineering will miss him dearly.
