    The project SENSEIVER was funded by European Commission under Grant No: 289481. The project consortium consisted of seven partners from six different European countries employed a total of 20 researchers. Within this project I have successfully designed an IR-UWB based receiver for wireless sensor networks. (

    Short-Slot Hybrid Coupler using Gap Waveguides

    This project was supported by Arkivator AB and Chalmers University of Technology. For the first time, a hybrid coupler was designed in newly discovered metamaterial (Gap Wave Guide) with strict industrial requirements. The project was a success and Masters Degree was awarded

    Channel Estimation in MIMO Systems

    This project was supported by Ericsson AB and Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. The main goal of this project was to estimate the channel degradation in a MIMO system using different Antennas. Using GNU Radio and Hydra Software, an efficient channel sounder was prepared which estimated channel parameters using antennas such as China Hat, Dipole and Lossy Cable.

    Aside from aforementioned projects, I have designed several RF blocks such as Oscillators, Cassegrain Antenna and 16*16 Patch Antenna Array during graduate studies
