A Boost for Wireless and Energy-Harvesting Technologies

"In electronics, you can take a system and improve it circuit by circuit, but we want to come up with a new vision for systems and architectures."

In part 4 of our 2019 researcher case studies we look at Dr Elena Blokhina of the UCD School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering.

Wireless architectures and infrastructures allow devices to establish connections and transfer information, whether it’s a conversation between humans, a data transfer for business or a remote sensor relaying information about its environment.
Dr Blokhina’s research seeks to improve the fundamental functioning of wireless communication between devices, both by improving the underlying architecture for generating signals and by enabling sensors to harvest energy from their surroundings.
