The illustrious Bell Labs Prize was awarded to Kaushik Sengupta, Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering at Princeton University, for his invention of a radical new transceiver chip technology that could power a truly universal software-defined reconfigurable radio. 

Sengupta was joined on the podium by two other leading researcher teams. The second prize was a tie and was awarded to Tse Nga (Tina) Ng, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California at San Diego, and Jason Azoulay, Assistant Professor of Polymer Science and Engineering, University of Southern Mississippi for their invention of new photosensitive polymer materials that can be used for health and medical monitoring through-the-skin with wearable, thin, flexible devices. Also in second place is Colm O’Dwyer, Physical Chemistry Professor at University College Cork, Ireland for his invention of a new class of 3D-printed batteries that could be incorporated into virtually any form factor.

The nine finalists presented their ideas to a group of industry luminaries in the final judging event. Please join us in congratulating the 2017 winners!
