An IIT Kanpur graduate who is now MIT scientist has stunned the world by solving a problem that has been bothering scientists for more than 150 years and he is only in his twenties. The guy’s name is Dinesh Bharadia and he has made history by his research on radio waves. He somehow managed to enable a host of new applications from Internet of Things connectivity to motion tracking. The young scientist has been awarded the 2016 Marconi Society Paul Baran Young Scholar Award which carries a cash prize of $4,000. Dinesh has done his Doctorate from Stanford University and will receive the award in the month of November 2016 in California.

Bharadia’s research dismisses the theory that “it is normally not possible for a radio to receive and transmit on the same frequency band because of the interference that results.” His work culminated in making full-duplex radios a reality through the development of effective self-interference cancellation technology.
Dinesh’s theory has the potential to make following things possible.
- It will help in building cars which can work without drivers in severe weather conditions with novel wireless imaging
- It will also help blind people navigate way indoors
