Join RCA President Emeritus Tim Duffy for this inaugural webcast interview with Dr. Ted Rappaport!
August 13, 2020 9-10 p.m. EDT. Pre-registration is required – please register HERE.
Dr. Rappaport is the David Lee/Ernst Weber Chaired Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering and is a Professor of Computer Science at NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. He is also a Professor of Radiology at the NYU Langone School of Medicine.
He is the founding director of NYU WIRELESS, one of the world’s first academic research centers to combine wireless engineering, computer science and medicine. Before launching NYU WIRELESS in 2012, he founded two other large academic wireless research centers: the Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG) at the University of Texas at Austin in 2002, and the Mobile and Portable Radio Research Group (MPRG), now known as Wireless @Virginia Tech, in 1990.
He is one of the most highly-cited authors in the wireless field, having published over 200 technical papers and over 20 books, and is a highly sought-after expert. He has over 100 patents issued or pending.
Dr. Rappaport’s research spans the fields of radio wave propagation and antennas for cellular and personal communication, wireless communication system design, analysis, simulation, and broadband wireless communications circuits and systems. His research has influenced many international wireless standards bodies over three decades.
He and his students have received numerous honors and best paper awards and have invented widely-used measurement equipment, software, simulation methodologies and analytical approaches for the exploration and modeling of radio propagation channels and communication system design in a vast range of spectrum bands for emerging wireless system.
He also invented the technology of site-specific radio frequency (RF) channel modelling and design for wireless network deployment – a technology now used routinely throughout the wireless industry.
More recently, he conducted work that proved the viability of millimeter wave (mmWave) mobile communication for future broadband access, and his work influenced the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and 3GPP/ITU to develop 5G wireless network standards throughout the world.
