Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Michel A. Reece is currently an associate professor and research director of the Center of Microwave, Satellite, and RF Engineering (COMSARE) in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Morgan State University. In this center, she pursues research in the areas of high frequency device characterization and modeling, highly efficient solid-state power amplifier design, and adaptable components design for software defined radio applications. She is a faculty member within the Electron, Devices, Circuits and Systems track that support research in the area of embedded systems. She currently serves as a committee team member of the IEEE Microwave Technology and Techniques International Microwave Symposium ( MTT - IMS) Project Connect initiative that develops programs to expose and motivate diverse underrepresented groups in RF Microwave and Wireless Communications. She became the first female recipient at Morgan State to obtain her doctorate degree in Engineering in 2003. Previously, she served as a post- doctoral researcher of the Microwave Systems Section of the RF Engineering Group at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Space Department. She has worked at other companies such as Northrop Grumman and Boeing (formerly known as Hughes Aircraft Company). She has a passion for education where she has developed RF Microwave Engineering-based courses unique among HBCUs. She has also taught as an adjunct faculty member at Johns Hopkins University Engineering Professionals Program.

Specialty Areas

  • RF/Microwave Engineering
  • MMIC circuit design; Semiconductor Devices (GaN, GaAs)
  • RF/Microwave Device Characterization, Device Modeling, Test and Measurement
  • Adaptable/Reconfigurable Analog Communication Components

Research Interest

  • Apply current RF microwave knowledge to the development of complex, high performance, and mix-mode circuit designs for RF microwave and millimeter wave systems and software defined radio technologies.

Presently my lab, the Center of Microwave, Satellite, and RF Engineering (COMSARE), is interested in the device characterization of semiconductor components, especially transistors developed from InP, GaAs, or GaN materials. The center also specializes in the application of neural network techniques to device modeling. COMSARE is active in the development of RF, microwave and millimeter wave circuit and subsystem designs suitable for satellite, wireless, and radar communication applications.
