About NYU WIRELESS

NYU WIRELESS is a vibrant academic research center that is pushing the boundaries of wireless communications, sensing, networking, and devices.

Centered at NYU Tandon School of Engineering and involving leaders from industry, faculty, and students throughout the entire NYU community, NYU WIRELESS offers its industrial affiliate sponsors, students, and faculty members a world-class research environment that is creating fundamental knowledge, theories, and techniques for future mass-deployable wireless devices in a wide range of applications and markets.

Every January, NYU WIRELESS hosts an annual recruiting day for all of its students and Industrial Affiliate sponsors, and hosts a major invitation-only wireless summit every April, in cooperation with Nokia Bell Laboratories, for the center’s Industrial Affiliates and thought leaders throughout the global telecommunications industry.

NYU WIRELESS Leadership

Associate Directors Sundeep Rangan, Thomas L Marzetta, John-Ross Rizzo, and Dennis Shasha are working with Director and Founder Ted Rappaport to manage NYU WIRELESS across Brooklyn and Manhattan campuses of NYU.

Prof. Rappaport has powered the 5G millimeter wave era, and is a leading educator in the wireless arena, having authored many books and started three major wireless research centers.

Prof. Rangan is an Electrical Engineering professor at NYU Tandon, and was a co-founder of Flarion Technologies, which developed Flash OFDM, one of the first cellular OFDM data systems.

Prof. Marzetta originated the concept of Massive MIMO, and continues to sustain contributions to the development and promotion of Massive MIMO.

Prof. J.R. Rizzo is an assistant professor in the Departments of Rehabilitation Medicine and Neurology at NYU Langone Health. His research is focused on wearable technology and blindness and visual impairment.

Prof. Shasha of Courant’s Computer Science Department is widely known for his expertise in data-intensive algorithms, streaming data, and is a highly acclaimed inventor of mathematical puzzles.
