Collaborative Research Fund: Harnessing the "Fog" of Ambient RF Waves


Our research team, led by Prof. Ross MURCH from the HKUST, has won the Collaborative Research Fund -- a multi-million dollor (HKD) grant funded by the Hong Kong Research Grant Council to support large-scale collaborative research. Through this fund, the team will perform holistic research towards harnessing ambient RF waves. As a Co-Investigator, Alex will co-ordinate research efforts on RF ambient wave-shaping and contribute to the wave-sensing and demonstration iniatives.
