Dr. Darmindra Arumugam's Research Group
The research: We perform cutting edge research in applied electromagnetics.
Where: The group is located at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology (Caltech)
When: Dr. Arumugam's group started in 2012 when Dr. Arumugam joined JPL's Radar Science and Enginnering section from Carnegie Mellon University.
Focus: We focus in the broad field of applied electromagnetics. Our expertise span both theoretical and computational electromagnetics, and heavily relies on experimental physics and systems engineering.
Team: Dr. Arumugam supervises a team of 3 senior engineers at JPL, and has active collaborations with numerous researchers at JPL and Caltech.
Dr. Darmindra Arumugam is a researcher at JPL/Caltech, specializing in applied electromagnetics. He is the PI and Project Scientist for POINTER, which is an upcoming JPL-DHS mission for first-responder tracking in visually/optically obstructed urban environments. His current research at JPL also focusses on radar systems and imaging, microwave propagation and scattering theory, and ultra-low-frequency and quasistatic communications and localization. He has pioneered application of localization using quasistatic fields in non-line-of-sight environments, and holds a major patent on this topic. He also actively contributes new algorithms to the MARSIS and SHARAD community, and is an active member of the IEEE, where he routinely publishes in, and reviews for high-impact journals in electromagnetics. Dr. Arumugam is an author is over 40 peer reviewed journals and technical articles. He holds two patents and is routinely invited to review technical articles and proposals in electromagnetics.
