The team behind GhostWave consists of retired Ohio State electrical and computer engineering (ECE) professor Eric Walton and currrent ECE professor Wladimiro Villarroel, who teamed up with Ohio State business alumnus Zody as CEO. The business recently earned $100,000 from the Ohio Third Frontier program to help develop its technology for commercialization.
