About Me

Joshua KovitzWelcome! My name is Josh Kovitz, and I love tinkering with new tech and understanding how the world works. At the present time, I am conducting research and development at the Advanced Concepts Laboratory within the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). My primary role is to provide antenna expertise for related projects in addition to investigating new technologies that could improve wireless systems as we know it. My skills concentrate primarily in antenna engineering, microwave systems, and electromagnetics, but I also take interest in wireless communications and circuits to gain a holistic perspective on my work. I designed this website to serve as an outlet for exhibiting my work, interests, and current status. For those interested, please make sure to check out my research portfolio page.

Before coming to GaTech, I was a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), collaborating with Prof. Rahmat-Samii on a project developing sophisticated CubeSat antennas. I also graduated with my PhD and Masters in Electrical Engineering from UCLA in 2015 and 2012, respectively. Before graduate studies, I attended the University of Houston (UH) to receive a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (summa cum laude) in 2010 and an inspiration to continue my education. I list some of my most recent awards and external activities below, but a full disclosure is given in my curriculum vitae, which can be accessed by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.
