David Reid, Ph.D.


Dr. David Reid is a Senior Research Engineer and is the head of the Electromagnetic Materials and Measurements Branch of the Georgia Tech Research Institute’s Advanced Concepts Laboratory. Dr. Reid’s research interests include the electromagnetic characterization of materials and the design of engineered materials. He has worked to understand the mechanisms for uncertainty in existing measurement fixtures and to develop techniques to reduce this uncertainty for various systems. Dr. Reid has developed new validation and verification standards for the focused beam measurement system to ensure the accuracy and repeatability of measurements of absorbing materials. Dr. Reid has also worked on the design of engineered materials and surfaces, using computational electromagnetics tools to tailor the material properties to meet desired specifications and to accurately predict performance.
