ZOOM meeting
(no need to register for this online meeting)


Dr. Theodore Rappaport will talk about cellular intercept - a technology that he helped pioneer, with methods such as IMSI Catcher and Cell-Site Stimulators, used to investigate all sorts of criminal activities from narcotic trafficking to human trafficking to terrorism. Not to mention, the apprehension of fugitives: Last year, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, accused of grooming underage girls to be sexually abused by money manager Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested in her secluded New Hampshire compound after the FBI tracked her using "cellular intercept." 
Dr. Rappaport holds faculty appointments in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the Courant Computer Science Department, and the NYU Langone School of Medicine. He is also the founding director of NYU WIRELESS, a multidisciplinary research center focused on the future of wireless communications and applications.

See you on February 25th!
