Michael D. Wright

Ph.D. Candidate, University of South Carolina


Michael D. Wright was raised in St. Petersburg, FL. He received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of South Carolina in 2013. Immediately after graduation, Michael began pursuing graduate studies in antenna design under Professor Mohammod Ali at the University of South Carolina.
As part of his graduate work, Michael was afforded the opportunity to spend a full year at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH (USA) learning practical and hands-on CLAS (conformal, load-bearing antenna structure) design concepts. Currently, Michael is PhD candidate at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. His research interest include frequency reconfigurable antenna systems, CLAS, and direct-write antenna fabrication techniques.
