Electrical engineering student team wins second place in international design contest


UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Three 2021 graduates and two graduate students from the Penn State School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science won second place in the student design contest at the 2021 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and U.S. National Committee for the International Union of Radio Science Meeting in December. Team members included Rebecca E. DeSipio, Ethan D. Tabler, Michael J. Shero, Bailey Campbell, Nam Nicholas Mai and faculty mentor Gregory Huff, associate professor of electrical engineering. The team’s project — Lowering the Barrier for Radio-Telemetry Tracking of Invasive Species — focused on the development of a low-cost radio telemetry system to support tagging and tracking efforts for invasive species research and mitigation. The project is being continued in Huff's research group by a multidisciplinary team of undergraduate students from across the College of Engineering who are investigating the system as a tool to help manage the spread of the spotted lanternfly across the state.
