Antenna design for mobile devices

Education
PhD (Electronics Engineering) From Hanyang University, South Korea.

Dr. Zeeshan Zahid received his M.Phil Electronics from Quaid-i-Azam University, and PhD from Hanyang University, South Korea, in 2006 and 2018, respectively. He joined Military College of Signals, MCS NUST as a Lecturer in 2006, where he is currently serving as Assistant Professor. He has been teaching the subjects such as Electronic Circuits and Devices, Electromagnetic Field Theory, Microwave Engineering, Transmission Lines and Waveguides, Wave Propagation and Antennas. Based on his excellent performance, he received Best Teacher Award at MCS in 2012. He received NUST scholarship under faculty development program for his doctoral studies from South Korea, in 2015. His doctoral research was focused on high efficiency electrically small antenna design for mobile devices. After the completion of his doctoral studies, he re-joined MCS NUST in January 2018.
Dr. Zeeshan is an active researcher and has contributed a number of research papers, published in reputed journals. His research interests include antenna design for mobile devices, high efficiency and wideband antennas, circularly polarized antennas, and massive MIMO for 5G Smartphone. He is a member of IEEE and IEEE antennas and propagation society (AP-S). He serves as a technical reviewer of international journals such as IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters (AWPL), Microwave and Optical Technology Letters (MOTL), and Progress in Electromagnetic Research (PIERS). He is an approved PhD supervisor by Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan.
