Which Indian American has won the 2016 Marconi Society Paul Baran Young Scholar Award?
Dinesh Bharadia, an Indian-origin MIT scientist, has won the prestigious 2016 Marconi Society Paul Baran Young Scholar Award for his contribution to send and receive radio (wireless) signals, including mobile telephony and data on the same channel (wave). By his research on radio waves, he disproved a long-held assumption of 150 years that it is not possible for a radio to receive and transmit on the same frequency band because of the interference that results. The award is equivalent to the Nobel Prize in science and technology domain and carries a cash prize of $ 4,000. He will receive the award at a ceremony at Mountain View in California on November 2, 2016.
