ECE Associate Professor Josep Jornet received the 2022 IEEE WTC Outstanding Young Researcher Award for his pioneering contributions to the field of terahertz communications. This annual award is given to an active member of the Wireless Communications Technical Committee (WTC) within the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), who has been involved significantly with research related to the areas of wireless communications and is within 10 years since completion of Ph.D. at the time of nomination. Dr. Jornet’s contributions range from terahertz array architectures and propagation channel models to physical and link layer solutions for ultra-broadband and ultra-directional networks operating at frequencies above 100 GHz. He has published over 200 peer-reviewed papers and multiple patents, and his works have accumulated over 13,500 citations in a very short time.
