Bodet Receives 2024 Outstanding PhD Student Award in Research

Duschia Bodet, E’21, MS’21, PhD’25, electrical engineering, is the recipient of the 2024 Outstanding PhD Student Award in Research, which recognizes PhD students who have shown an impressive ability to conduct high-level research and make contributions to the scholarly literature in their field.

Bodet is exploring how to enable high data-rate wireless communications at Terahertz frequencies. Captivated by the topic during undergraduate electives, she began working in the Ultrabroadband Nanonetworking Lab for work study. In her fifth year as a BS/MS student at Northeastern, she participated in two part-time co-ops: one with the Griffiss Institute at the Air Force Research Lab and one at a public elementary school in Brookline, Massachusetts. During this time, Bodet realized she enjoyed the combination of research and teaching, which led her to pursue her PhD at Northeastern. In her spare time, Bodet enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, coaching Northeastern’s women and gender inclusive ultimate frisbee team, and tutoring through the Petey Greene Program.
