MIT Technology Review has named Dinesh Bharadia to its annual list of Innovators Under 35. For over a decade, the global media company has recognized a list of exceptionally talented technologists whose work has great potential to transform the world. Bharadia, a Stanford Ph.D who is currently a graduate researcher at MIT, has been recognized for his work in telecommunications. He also is a 2016 Marconi Society Paul Baran Young Scholar.
Bharadia’s work solved a problem that stumped scientists for 150 years; how to enable radios to both receive and transmit on the same frequency. By making full duplex radios a reality using innovative self-interference cancellation technology, he effectively doubled available radio spectrum in a bandwidth-constrained world.
Stanford, Prof. Sachin Katti, Bharadia’s primary advisor, says the work has other important implications, enabling “a whole host of new applications, from extremely low-power Internet of Things connectivity to motion tracking. It has the potential to be used for important future applications such as building novel wireless imaging that can enable driverless cars in severe weather scenarios, help blind people to navigate indoors, and much more.”
“Over the years, we’ve had success in choosing young innovators whose work has been profoundly influential on the direction of human affairs,” says editor-in-chief and publisher Jason Pontin. “Previous winners include Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the cofounders of Google; Mark Zuckerberg, the cofounder of Facebook; and Jonathan Ive, the chief designer of Apple. We’re proud of our selections and the variety of achievements they celebrate, and we’re proud to add Dinesh Bharadia to this prestigious list.”
This year’s honorees are featured online at www.technologyreview.com and in the September/October print magazine, which hit newsstands worldwide on August 29. They will appear in person at the upcoming EmTech MIT conference October 18–20 in Cambridge, Massachusetts (www.EmTechMIT.com).
