Ruth G. Gebremedhin

I am a third year Ph.D. candidate in Electrical and Computer Engineering at New York University's Tandon School of Engineering. I am actively engaged in cutting-edge research as part of the NYU Wireless research center. My path began with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from NYU Abu Dhabi and now my focus is on developing next-generation technologies for the wireless physical layer. I am also interested in information theory and using machine learning to revolutionize wireless communication.
