Rappaport also announced the new research thrusts for the center including a focus in the areas of Terahertz (THz), Mobile edge and low latency networking, Quantum devices and circuits, 5G and 6G applications, Communications and machine learning foundations, Testbeds and prototyping.
The new dean thanked the NYU WIRELESS students for the warm welcome and invited them to her Open House event on September 10. The event will feature an informal conversation with students to share opinions, insights, and ideas about improving the Tandon student community.
