Emmanouil "Manos" Tentzeris has been named the first Georgia Tech recipient of the E.T.S. Walton Visitor Award, given by the Science Foundation Ireland.

This awards program enables qualified academic and industrial researchers who reside outside of Ireland to carry out research projects of their own choice during their stay in Ireland.

Dr. Tentzeris is conducting research at Georgia Tech Ireland this summer, where he will develop environmentally-friendly paper-based technology platforms for “green” RFIDs. He will also work on developing sensors with “enhanced wireless intelligence” and renewable energy scavenging capabilities.

An associate professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech, Dr. Tentzeris is the head of the ATHENA Research Group and is the associate director of the Georgia Electronic Design Center.

Georgia Tech Ireland (GTI) is an applied research facility of the Georgia Tech Research Institute that partners and collaborates with Irish corporations, universities and research centers, the Georgia Tech research community, and U.S. companies.
