Congratulations to Shubhendu Bhardwaj, assistant professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, for being awarded the 2021 William R. Jones Outstanding Mentor Award by the Florida Education Fund.
After reviewing a nomination made by Dieff Vital, the committee for the award unanimously agreed on the award.
As an honoree, Bhardwaj received a plaque and a monetary award for his outstanding contribution to the McKnight Doctoral Fellowship Program at November’s awards and induction ceremony.
Bhardwaj’s research focuses on developing antenna components and modeling techniques for sub-mm-wave and terahertz electronics. He has developed antenna designs that have allowed cost-effective fabrication of sub-mm-wave antennas, enabling the advent of sub-mm-wave circularly polarized antennas. He has also developed antenna measurement methods enabling the transition of the antenna metrology into sub-mm-wave and terahertz range. As radio technology shifts into millimeter waves, his research will have applications in improving wi-fi and cell phone communications
Congratulations once again, Dr. Bhardwaj!
