Celebrating our students: Russell Silva

By Macaulay Library Team

Undergraduate Russell Silva is an engineering major who is developing a tiny electronic device to be attached to small birds, like hummingbirds, to track their movements. This is challenging, because it needs to be accurate, tiny, and lightweight, and communicate with receivers in forests. His tracker is using incredibly small difference in time delay of receivers to triangulate the location of the tracker.

He is mentored by Dr. Julian Kapoor.
