Overview and Duties

We are looking for a highly motivated student to work on a reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) system for wireless networks. RIS is an emerging research area and represents a paradigm shift in wireless systems design where the ambient environment is controlled to overcome conventional communication bottlenecks [1]. In this position, you will perform antenna design, meta-material simulation, and system prototyping.
