Thomas Marzetta was born in Washington, D.C. He received the PhD and SB in Electrical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1978 and 1972, and the MS in Systems Engineering from University of Pennsylvania in 1973. After careers in petroleum exploration at Schlumberger-Doll Research and defense research at Nichols Research Corporation, he joined Bell Labs (then AT&T; now Nokia) in 1995 where he is currently a Bell Labs Fellow. Previously he directed the Communications and Statistical Sciences Department within the former Mathematical Sciences Research Center.
Dr. Marzetta is on the Advisory Board of MAMMOET (Massive MIMO for Efficient Transmission), an EU-sponsored FP7 project, and he was Coordinator of the GreenTouch Consortium’s Large Scale Antenna Systems Project. He has received awards including the 2015 IEEE Stephen O. Rice Prize, the 2015 IEEE W. R. G. Baker Award, and the 2013 IEEE Guglielmo Marconi Prize Paper Award. He was elected a Fellow of the IEEE in 2003, and he received an Honorary Doctorate from Linköping University in 2015.
Fighting Covid 19 with Deep Graphs
Prof. George Karypis with PhD students Vasileios Ioannidis (ECE) and Saurav Manchanda (CSci) from the DTC at the University of Minnesota, a team of scientists from the Ohio State University, Hunan University, and Amazon’s AWS AI labs in Shanghai and Palo Alto have created the Drug Repurposing Knowledge Graph (DRKG) and a set of machine learning tools that can be used to prioritize drugs for repurposing studies.
