Professor Anding Zhu received an Investigator Award (worth 900,000 Euros) from Science Foundation Ireland (SFI). This award is to fund research on high efficiency millimetre-wave power amplifiers to enable super high speed wireless data transmission in next generation wireless communications.
Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disease that affects parts of the brain that control the movement of muscles, and can result in the person having ‘shakes’ or tremors and experience difficulty walking and speaking. One treatment for these symptoms is Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), which implants an electrode into the brain to calm muscle tremors and other motor symptoms.
In the second of a series of Case Studies about Researchers in the UCD College of Engineering & Architecture we meet Professor R. Bogdan Staszewski from the UCD School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering.
