Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship

A team of Texas ECE students has been named a winner of the Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship 2020 (North America) competition. The team of Khurram Mazher and Andrew Graff won for their project "Radar-to-radar Interference: System Level Analysis and Solutions." Khurram and Andrew were one of 13 winning teams selected from 42 finalists.

The Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship began in 2009, and "has continued to grow with the addition of more universities, more candidates, and expansion to our research centers internationally."

"The QIF program is focused on recognizing, rewarding, and mentoring innovative PhD students across a broad range of technical research areas, based on Qualcomm’s core values of innovation, execution and teamwork. QIF enables graduate students to be mentored by our engineers and supports them in their quest towards achieving their research goals."

Khurram and Andrew were supervised by Prof. Robert Heath and former Senior Research Scientist Nuria Gonzalez Prelcic of the Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG).
