Meet Francesco Positano, doctoral student at the LEAT laboratory! And find out more about his 3-month stay at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, within the famous Georgia Institute of Technology (USA), which was fully funded by the DocWalker Mobility Program.


How did your international mobility project start?

It started as a challenge. I wanted to spend a period abroad, and the DocWalker program was the perfect opportunity. After discussing it with my advisor, he suggested the destination due to his connection with prof. Manos M. Tentzeris, established a few years ago through the IEEE EurAAP (European School of Antennas and Propagation). Before applying for the mobility program, we had some exchanges with professor to agree on my responsibilities there and on the possible dates for the mobility period.
