Li Receives IEEE AP-S Doctoral Research Grant

Sensen Li has received a 2018 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) Doctoral Research Grant. He is a Ph.D. student in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).

This is a highly prestigious and competitive honor for Ph.D. students in IEEE AP-S, and the goal of this award is to encourage pursuit of careers in advanced electromagnetics. Li's proposed research focuses on innovative multi-feed antennas and their co-operations with electronics to achieve mm-Wave massive MIMO systems with unprecedented front-end performance. The award announcement will be featured in the Education Column of the upcoming IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine.

Li has worked for three years in the Georgia Tech Electronics and Micro-System (GEMS) Lab, where he is advised by Hua Wang. Li received his B.Eng. with highest honors and B.A. from Zhejiang University, Zhejiang, China and was awarded a First-Class Scholarship for outstanding undergraduate students. He also received Analog Devices, Inc. Outstanding Student Designer Award in 2018.

Li’s paper has been selected as a Best Student Paper Award Finalist at the 2018 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium (RFIC), to be held June 10-12 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His Ph.D. research focuses on mm-Wave and THz integrated antenna, circuit, and system designs for 5G MIMO wireless communication, radar, and hyperspectral imaging applications.
