Mark Lust

Mark is a University Fellow Ph.D. student with the Electrical and Computer Engineering department as of Autumn 2018, and has been involved with the RF Microsystems group since January 2017. He graduated with his B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Ohio State University in May 2018. He also received an internship with NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, OH, taking place Summer 2018 and focusing on antenna arrays for space communication.


Jack Eichenberger

Jack is a Ph.D. student at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He attended Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana where he got his B.S. in Electrical Engineering. Within electromagnetics his primary area of interest is antenna design.


Jordan Ramsey

Jordan is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. She received her B.S. in Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, 2016.


Ken Henderson

Kendrick received his B.S. of Electrical Engineering (2015), B.S. of Computer Engineering (2015), and M.S. of Electrical Engineering (2017) from the University of South Alabama. His previous research includes novel carbon fiber composite fabrication using aligned carbon nanofibers, thermal energy storage material, Frequency Selective Surfaces, and antenna design for LTE systems. Since beginning his research as an undergraduate, he has published several conference and journal papers. Currently, he is a Ph.D. student under Dr. Ghalichechian researching novel reconfigurable reflectarray antennas for millimeter wave applications. He is also funded by the Department of Defense SMART program.
