Biography

Waqas H. Syed received the B.Sc. degree with distinction in telecommunication engineering from the CIIT, Islamabad, Pakistan, in 2007, his M.Sc. degree from RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany, in 2010, and his Ph.D. degree (cum laude) in electromagnetics from Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), Delft, The Netherlands, in 2015.

From 2015 to 2016, he was Post-Doctoral researcher in the Terahertz Sensing Group at TUDelft. He is currently working as an antenna engineer at NXP Semiconductors, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. His research interests include artificial dielectrics and the design of integrated antennas and arrays. Dr. Syed was recipient of the Special Mention for Excellent Presentation at the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP) in 2015. He was also the recipient of the 2016 Else Kooi Award for the Best Young Researcher in the field of applied semiconductor research and microelectronics conducted in the Netherlands.
