Mahmoud Wagih Mohamed GSIEEE, BEng

https://www.linkedin.com/in/mahmoud-wagih/
  • 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 harvestingWearable Antennas, 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 PhD researcher as part of the European Commission EnABLES Project leading work in RF and mmWave energy harvesting, and a research assistant working on wearable microwave wireless power transfer as part of EPSRC Wearable and Autonomous Computing for Future Smart Cities. He is a research intern at Arm Research
