Ph.D. student, Felix Gutierrez, has been named a Marconi Young Scholar. He is one of only five international recipients. The Marconi Society, an organization devoted to recognizing and encouraging scientific contributions in the field of communications science and the internet, recognized Gutierrez for his outstanding work in the field of antenna design and analog circuit design.
Gutierrez, supervised by Professor Ted Rappaport, is a member of the Wireless Networking and Communications Group. His research merges the fields of electromagnetics, circuit design, and communications to create revolutionary high-speed wireless communication devices. These wireless devices should achieve data rates far surpassing today's current technology by orders of magnitude and rival wired devices in terms of cost, power, and speed.
