Brief Bio

Stewart received his PhD from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Duke University in 2013. His dissertation is titled "Modulated Backscatter for Low-Power High-Bandwidth Communication" and was written under the guidance of Dr. Matthew S. Reynolds.

Research Interests

The combination of low-power communication and low-power sensors enables exciting new possibilities for technology. This includes new low-power sensor networks, wearable computers, and pervasive sensing paradigms. Stewart's work has focused on improving communication efficiency for low-power devices, improving power-harvesting techniques, and secondary radar communication. The next generation of RFID technology will move beyond just remote identification and broaden the way we interact with our environment through increased connectivity.
