Congratulations to Robert Corless, who successfully completed his Masters thesis and graduated this May from ECE. Robert has been working with the GTPG for the last two years, studying frequency-hopping in backscatter radio systems at microwave frequency. He will continue his career with the US Army. Our best to you and your family, Robert!

This is a classic undergraduate research study involving the use of spread spectrum signaling in backscatter links. Aside the novelty and quality of Rohatgi’s work, this was the work that Dan Deavours spotted a few year later. He then invited our group to give a talk on the subject at IEEE RFID 2008 in Las Vegas — a move that led to a fruitful, decade-long partnership that continues today.
