  • Researcher is making a splash

    Boston Herald - 03/23/2015

    Northeastern University could help develop the first underwater smartphone or wireless router after luring a highly cited researcher who is pioneering subaquatic Wi-Fi.

    Tommaso Melodia, 38, came to Northeastern in August from SUNY Buffalo and brought with him his research and his lab — which sent the first underwater tweet a few years ago.

    Less than a year into his stint at Northeastern, Melodia has already won a $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to expand his research, this time focusing on the possibility of real-time underwater video streaming.
