Avish Kosari, a graduate student in the Electrical Engineering program, received a Rackham International Student Fellowship to continue her studies as a doctoral student in Prof. David Wentzloff‘s research group.
In her first directed study project with Prof. Wentzloff, Avish is currently conducting research on ultra-low power radio technology and designing a low-power RF power amplifier. Power amplifers are the most power-hungry components in a radio transceiver. The device has applications in miniature-scale biomedical monitoring systems that need to operate for extended times without being recharged.
Ms. Kosari received her bachelor’s degree from Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, in 2010.
The Rackham International Student Fellowship assists outstanding international students, particularly those who may be ineligible for other kinds of support because of citizenship. To be eligible, international graduate students must have successfully completed one year of graduate study as a master’s or precandidate student. Nominees must have a strong academic record, be making good progress toward the degree, and demonstrate outstanding academic and professional promise.
