Yu Jiao was recognized for graduate student excellence in GNSS by the Institute of Navigation’s (ION) Satellite Division on Sept. 28 at the ION GNSS+ Conference in Miami. She received the Bradford W. Parkinson Award for her thesis, “Low-Latitude Ionospheric Scintillation Signal Simulation, Characterization and Detection on GPS Signals.”

Jiao received her Ph.D. at Colorado State University, with Jade Morton as her advisor. She graduated this past year and is now employed as a GNSS engineer at Intel.

The Bradford W. Parkinson Award is granted annually to recognize an outstanding graduate student in GNSS, and is presented in honor of Bradford W. Parkinson for his leadership in establishing the U.S. Global Positioning System and for his work on behalf of the Satellite Division of the Institute of Navigation.

Any graduate student who is a member of the ION and is completing a degree program with an emphasis in GNSS technology, applications or policy is eligible for the award.
