Garay, Nguyen Win Student Designer Awards

Edgar Garay and Huy Thong Nguyen have both been named recipients of the 2019 ISSCC Analog Devices Outstanding Student Designer Award. They are Ph.D. students in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).

This award recognizes graduate students who are in the early portion of their graduate studies and who have shown exceptional achievements and promise in the general field of integrated circuits and systems. Garay and Nguyen will be presented with these awards at the 2019 International Solid-State Circuits Conference, to be held February 17-21 in San Francisco, California. They are members of the Georgia Tech Electronics and Micro-System Lab (GEMS), where they are advised by Hua Wang.  

Garay’s Ph.D. research focuses on zero-power RF/mm-wave signal processing, multi-functional digital transmitter systems for next-generation radar and 5G wireless communications, and power generation for THz Internet of Things devices. He joined the GEMS Lab in 2015. He graduated with his B.S. degree in physics in 2009 and his B.S.E.E. degree in 2010 from Florida International University and his M.S.E.E. degree from the University of Florida in 2013. 

Nguyen’s Ph.D. research focuses on innovating circuits and systems architectures to resolve the unmet challenges of next generation mm-wave/THz technologies. He is working on addressing various emerging applications of this work to 5G, massive MIMO, radar, imaging, and spectroscopy. He joined the GEMS Lab in 2016. He graduated with his B.Eng. degree with First Class Honors from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2013.
