Bristol student scoops prize in national PhD competition
30 October 2015
A PhD student from the University of Bristol has been named as one of the winners of a prestigious national competition for his work on a new technology that could fundamentally change future wireless communications.
Leo Laughlin, from the University’s EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Communications, won the Technology Everywhere category in the UK ICT Pioneers competition 2015 - honouring researchers who are pioneers in Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
Leo's work on bi-directional radio communications could result in a fundamental change to the way we design wireless devices and has the potential to increase data rates and network capacity, reduce power consumption, create cheaper mobile devices and enable global roaming.
