Electrical Engineer


Jordan Budhu received his Ph.D.E.E from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2018 under the advisement of Professor Yahya Rahmat-Samii in the Antenna Research, Analysis, and Measurement (ARAM) Laboratory, after earning his M.S.E.E. degree with Distinction in 2010 from California State University Northridge under the advisement of Professor Sembiam Rengarajan.


Throughout his academic career, Budhu has won many awards and has taught in the field of electromagnetics. In 2006, he won the first place award for his undergraduate senior project and in 2010, was awarded the Eugene Cota-Robles Fellowship. Two years later, Budhu won the Best Poster award at the IEEE Coastal Los Angeles Class-Tech Annual Meeting. During this time, he worked at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 2011 and 2012. 


He was named a UCLA Teaching Fellow in 2018 after teaching more than seven quarters. That year, he was recognized by the department and awarded the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science Excellence in Teaching Award. In 2019, he was selected as a finalist for the USNC-URSI Ernst K. Smith Student Paper Competition at the 2019 Boulder National Radio Science Meeting, of which he subsequently won the first place award for best paper.


Budhu is now a postdoctoral research fellow with the University of Michigan in Professor Tony Grbic’s Lab, becoming a lecturer in the U-M Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science during the Winter 2020 semester. He is a member of both IEEE APS and the Bioelectromagnetics Societies.
