The University of Southampton

Mahmoud Wagih Mohamed GSIEEE, BEng
  • SEMS PhD student representative

Mahmoud received his EEE BEng (First Class Hons.) from the University of Southampton (2018), and is pursuing his PhD in the smart electronics materials and systems group, University of Southampton. His research interests include RF energy harvestingRF and power management IC design, ultra-low power sensor networks, in addition to RF wearable electronics.

He previously worked as a research assistant, in the University of Southampton supported by Intel, investigating novel high speed differential transmission lines. In addition, he interned at ARM working on hardware acceleration of IP verification flows. He is currently a part-time research assistant working on wearable microwave wireless power transfer as part of EPSRC Wearable and Autonomous Computing for Future Smart Cities
