Electrical Engineering Professor Joins National Academy of Inventors

John Suarez, associate professor of electrical engineering, was named a senior member of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). This national distinction is given to active faculty, scientists and administrators who have demonstrated remarkable innovation producing technologies that have made an impact, or have the potential to make an impact, on the welfare of society. Prof. Suarez was chosen for his work aimed at improving radio communications through the use of a patented opto-cancellation system that uses radio-frequency signals to reduce interference in radio transmissions. The novel system allows low-power radio signals to be received in the presence of powerful interference 100 times stronger than a signal of interest. It has been applied to broadcast, cellular, satellite and marine communications.

In addition to his faculty position at Widener, Prof. Suarez is also an affiliated faculty in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Delaware, a member institution of the NAI.
