    Education

    Sep 08 – Oct 11:         PhD in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

                                        (High Frequency Electronics)

    (Submitted thesis in September 2011 and VIVA is scheduled on 4thNovember)

    Queens University Belfast, Belfast, UK.       

     

    Thesis Title: Investigate the Effect of Phase Conjugation and Time Reversal Techniques in Free Space and a Reverberant Environment at 2.4 GHz.

     

    The objective of the thesis is to demonstrate numerically (CST-MWS) and experimentally the temporal compression, spatial resolution and beam steering features of both time reversal and phase conjugation techniques in three different environments: free space, a partially reflecting space and a fully reflecting space at microwave frequency (2.4 GHz).

    Work Experience

    Jun 07 – Sep 07:          High Frequency Electronics Research group

    ECIT, Queen’s University Belfast, Belfast, UK       

    A microstrip spiral antenna was designed in ADS by changing the number of turns and the thickness of the substrate and was tested on a Vector Network Analyser in the frequency range of 5 -15 GHz. The radiation pattern was measured in an anechoic chamber and its performance was reanalysed in CST-MWS.
