Srinivas Prasad Mysore Nagaraja

Srinivas is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Radar concepts and formulation group. He is working on the development of a millimeter-wave, compact, multifrequency radar system compatible with small spacecraft platforms (CubeSats or SmallSat) for remote sensing of clouds and precipitation. His previous work as a graduate student focused on developing Ultra Low Frequency mechanical antennas for underwater and underground communications.
