Dawson wins NSF Career Award

April 29, 2008

Joel Dawson, the Carl Richard Soderberg Career Development Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and core member of the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL) has won a Faculty Early Career Development Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The program will provide $400,000 over five years to support his group's work in cutting-edge wireless transceiver architectures.

Dawson's proposal, titled "Digitally-assisted Architectures for Next Generation RF Transceivers," will focus on the best use of deep-submicron CMOS for high performance wireless communications using architectural design creativity, as well as leveraging mathematical optimization techniques.

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of the early career-development of teacher-scholars who combine the best and most promising integration of both research and education.

Congratulations to Joel Dawson!
