Student Jason Soric Receives IEEE APS Honorable Mention

Thursday, September 17, 2015

WNCG student Jason Soric received Honorable Mention in the Student Paper Competition at the IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and North American Radio Science Meeting. The symposium, which was held in Vancouver, Canada this summer, provides an international forum for the exchange of information on state-of-the-art research in antennas, propagation, electromagnetic engineering and radio science.

Soric received this recognition for his paper, entitled “Radio-Frequency Transparent Dipole Antennas,” which he co-authored with his WNCG advisor, Prof. Andrea Alù. Each paper submission was judged on the quality of the written paper, the depth and breadth of the research work, the innovation and impact of the work in question and the verification and validation of the results reported in the paper.

The symposium and meeting are co-sponsored by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, the United States and the Canadian National Committees of the International Union of Radio Science.

Soric successfully defended his PhD this summer, and will continue working in Prof. Alù’s lab as a Postdoctoral Research Associate this fall.
