Tayler Brumble, a 2010 Jenks High School graduate, was recently awarded a National Defense Science & Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship. The NDSEG Fellowship is a highly competitive, portable fellowship that was awarded to 180 U.S. citizens and nationals who intend to pursue a doctoral degree in one of 15 supported disciplines. On average, 10 percent of reviewed applicants are selected to receive awards each year.
NDSEG confers high honors upon recipients of the three-year fellowship. The NDSEG Fellowship is sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Army Research Office, the High Performance Computing Modernization Program, and the Office of Naval Research, under the direction of the Director of Defense Research and Engineering. Brumble will complete the NDSEG fellowship at the University of Oklahoma.
In May, Brumble received her master’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from OU and in 2014, earned a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Magna Cum Laude, from OU.
As a Graduate Research Assistant at the Advanced Radar Research Center at OU, Brumble was developing radar simulations for Passive Bistatic SAR Imaging using ground-based illuminators of opportunity and exploring ATSC and 4G LTE waveforms as potential candidates.
