Pioneering the area of novel wave propagation based on time-variance


Nagulu’s research interests lie in the intersection of integrated circuits and systems, electromagnetic, communications, biomedical systems and quantum computing systems. He has been a pioneer in the area of novel wave propagation based on time-variance and has explored the use of time-variance to achieve non-magnetic non-reciprocity and wave propagation beyond the delay-bandwidth limit. His doctoral research dealt with the breaking of Lorentz reciprocity without the use of magnetic materials and the implementation of high-performance components in commercial CMOS processes for emerging applications including full-duplex wireless, full-duplex MRI and quantum computing.


Aravind Nagalu will join the McKelvey School of Engineering in January 2022 from Columbia University, where he is pursuing a doctorate in electrical engineering. He has been an author or co-author of papers in top journals and conferences, including Nature ElectronicsNature CommunicationsPhysical Review XIEEE JSSCIEEE TMTTIEEE ISSCCIEEE RFIC, and IEEE IMS. He was a recipient of the IEEE RFIC Symposium Best Student Paper Award (first place) in 2018, the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Predoctoral Achievement Award 2018-2019, the ISSCC Analog Devices Outstanding Student Designer Award in 2019, the IEEE MTT-S Graduate Fellowship in 2019, and an IEEE RFIC Symposium Best Student Paper Finalist nomination and the Columbia University Electrical Engineering Collaborative Research Award in 2020.
