Dr. Tyrone Roach received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2010. Later that year in 2010, he joined the Georgia Tech Research Institute as a Research Engineer where he contributed to a variety of sponsored programs based around his technical expertise and proficiency in electromagnetic modeling and simulation of complex structures that include multiple antenna and advanced phased array architectures. With ambitions for a career in academia, Dr. Roach began serving in 2015 as an Assistant Professor at the University of Oklahoma (OU). As a faculty member at OU, he engaged himself in a myriad of activities revolved around the core components beholden to the career path of an assistant professor: teaching, research, and service.

In January 2017, Dr. Roach resigned from OU and from that point on decided to take a voluntarily and purposeful break from the workforce. He is now actively seeking employment opportunities in an applied R&D environment wherein he can apply acquired engineering work experience in research industry and academia to help create and advanced technologies that offer significant benefits to societies and economies. His research and technical interests in the field of applied electromagnetics aims to advance functionality at the front-end of radar and communication systems that utilize multiple antennas (e.g., phased arrays) with adaptive and multi-functional characteristics. Overall, Dr. Roach aspires to achieve an opportunity in which it can be said that the organization he is affiliated with is a great place to work and where he has taken up residence is a great place to live.
