Ding Nie, Marconi Society Young Scholar

Recognized in 2018

“The topic of multiple antennas and coupling is not very well understood and is very difficult to characterize. The Marconi Society Young Scholar Award gives me inspiration and encouragement to keep up my research.”

Research Area

High-bandwidth multiport radio-frequency circuits and systems.

Current Position

RF Systems Integration Engineer, Apple


  • PhD in Electrical Engineering, University of Notre Dame
  • Bachelor of Engineering (BE) in Electronic Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University

Young Scholar Research

Establishing the fundamental limit on the bandwidth of coupled multi-antenna systems, thus generalizing the classical Bode-Fano bounds to arbitrary antenna systems.

Fun Fact

Basketball is my favorite game to play. So much so that I almost do not do any other sports. American football is my favorite game to watch. But I have never played it myself.
