Jake Smith and Emily Backer graduated with their MSEE this May. Both helped tremendously with the microwave power transfer work in the lab, with Jake working on energy-harvesting circuits to drive sample light display and Emily designing a thin, holographic reflector arrays for high-powered sources. Jake now joins Texas Instruments in Dallas, TX while Emily is staying local in Duluth, GA as she starts a position at ViaSat. Congratulations on the great contributions you both made to our program as well as the new jobs with top-notch companies!
We should also note that Zach Silva successfully completed his MSEE, as noted earlier, but will be returning to GT for the PhD program in the Fall.
