David J. Love, the Nick Trbovich Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been elected to the Executive Committee of the National Spectrum Consortium. The NSC is a research and development organization that incubates new technologies to revolutionize the way in which electromagnetic spectrum is used. It provides a forum for government, industry, and academia to collaborate and develop crucial spectrum-related technologies.
Love says it is a great honor to be elected to the Executive Committee.
“Due to the proliferation of wireless devices and technologies, the United States will face great challenges in the coming years in using the available electromagnetic spectrum as efficiently as possible,” he says. “The NSC will play an important role in addressing these challenges through facilitating government, industry, and academic collaboration.”
Love is a renowned researcher in the broad area of wireless communications, with specific emphasis on feedback-assisted adaptive wireless systems. He leads the College of Engineering Preeminent Team on Efficient Spectrum Usage. Love has been recognized as an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Fellow and a Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher in 2014 and 2015.
