Golden Key is happy to introduce Christian O. Díaz-Cáez, one of Golden Key’s 2020 Graduate Scholar Award winners. Christian graduated as a Cum Laude Honor Engineer from Universidad del Turabo in 2016 with a Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering and earned a Master’s of Electrical Engineering from Howard University in 2019. He is currently pursuing his Doctorate in Electrical Engineering from Howard University.

“I am very grateful for all the confidence the Golden Key family has given me by selecting me as the Graduate Scholarship Award recipient,” Christian says. “This award will support me during my graduate research and dissertation towards a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering.”

Chrisitan is currently a member of the Computational Electromagnetics Research Group at Howard University.

“My current research includes the modeling and simulations of electromagnetic scattering and radiation,” Christian shares. “Also, we work with the development and implementation of fast algorithms to solve electromagnetics problems in real-world scenarios. Our research findings in the graduate program have an essential impact on designing, implementing, testing, and improving new technology performance such as radar systems, antennas, communications systems, among others.”

However, Christian’s research doesn’t stop there; he has also completed research with other universities and institutions.

“I have also participated in several types of research at different universities and research institutions, such as the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Tsinghua University, The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, and the NOAA Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation; and different departments at Howard University, the Ana G. Mendez University, and Inter-American University,” Chrisitan mentions.

Along with Chrisitan’s membership with Golden Key, he recently became a member of one of the world’s largest research honor societies.

“Recently, I have been elected as an associate member of Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society,” Chrisitan reveals. “Sigma Xi is the world’s largest general research honor society.”

Chrisitan is a part of many other additional student and professional organizations.

“One of these is the world’s largest technical professional organization for advancement and technology, The Institute of the Electrical and Electronics Engineers,” Christian explains. “I am a graduate member of the IEEE Washington Section and a member of three IEEE technical Societies, which are the Electromagnetic Combability Society, Circuits and System Society, and the Antennas and Propagation Society; and member of the IEEE Young Professionals Community.”
Christian’s dedication to his academics doesn’t stop at just these organizations; he is also a member of ten additional societies.

“I am a member of the Golden Key International Honor Society and a graduate member of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers in the Washington D.C. Professional Chapter,” Christian remarks. “Also, I am a member of the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/ Hispanics and Native Americans in Science and the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, Association for Computing Machinery, The Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society, Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Indian Science and Engineering Society and the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association International.”

Thank you for being a part of the Golden Key family, Chrisitan; we wish you the best of luck with your Doctorate!
