    Profile

     

    Peteris a qualified Electronic Engineer. He spent over 5 years at the University of Birmingham where he obtained a Bachelors degree in Electronic Engineering and a Master of Philosophy in Antenna Design. Since early 2010 he returned to industry where he has continued to pursue his interest in electronics. Peter is a member of IET and wishes to progress in his career to chartered engineering status.

     

    Education and Qualifications

     

    July 2009, M.Phil  – Antenna Design.

    The University of Birmingham, UK.

    Supervisor: Prof. Peter S. Hall.

     

    The research degree involved investigation into increasing the Return loss (<-10dB) and Gain bandwidth (>6dB) overlap of a microstrip dipole antenna over an Electromagnetic Bandgap (EBG) ground plane. Methods investigated include the use of parasitic elements, changes to an EBG ground plane and alternative non-contact feeding techniques.

     

    The Ansoft HFSS electromagnetic simulation package was used extensively throughout the study, and a selection of designs were fabricated. The project was a success, with an increase in usable bandwidth as well as the use of a simpler feeding method to allow for future miniaturization of the antenna structure.

     

    It was a privilege to work under the supervision of Prof. Peter Hall, who is heavily involved in all fields of antenna research in education and industry and has extensive knowledge of the subject matter.

     

    July 2006, B.Eng - Electronic Engineering [Hons]. (2:2)

    The University of Birmingham, UK.
