Kagan Topalli receives Young Scientist Award
Kagan Topalli, a post-doctoral researcher at the ElectroScience Laboratory, received the Young Scientist Award from the International Union of Radio Science to attend URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium in Istanbul, Turkey. The award is given every three years to a select group of scientists, less than 35 years of age, attending the URSI General Assembly. In addition, the USNC-URSI also awarded Kagan a supplemental grant to cover his travel expenses.
Topalli joined the ElectroScience Laboratory in February 2010. His research interests include RF MEMS technology for RF front ends and microwave/millimeter wave and THz sensors for imaging applications. He is collaborating with Dr. Kubilay Sertel on developing a real-time THz camera.
