Mary Ann Ingram received the B.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the Georgia

Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in 1983 and 1989, respectively.

From 1983 to 1986, she was a Research Engineer with the Georgia Tech

Research Institute in Atlanta, performing studies on radar electronic

countermeasure (ECM) systems. In 1986, she became a graduate research

assistant with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at

Georgia Tech, where in 1989, she became a Faculty Member and is

currently Professor.

Dr. Ingram’s early research areas were optical

communications and radar systems. In 1997, she established the

Smart Antenna Research Laboratory (SARL), which emphasizes

the application of multiple antennas to wireless communication systems;

this includes multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) architectures, smart

antennas, and adaptive arrays.

The SARL performs system analysis and design, channel measurement, and

prototyping relating to a wide range of wireless applications,

including wireless local area network (WLAN) and satellite communications,

with focus on the lower layers of communication networks.
