I did my schooling in St Josephs in Kashmir, India - followed by VTU/Christ University, India for my Bachelors/Master's :)
Bachelor and Master of engineering in Electronics and Communication
I worked as Research assistant in Tyndall National Institute, RF engineer in India
PhD student at Tyndall National Institute, UCC, Cork
About Me: Hi. I am Nadeem and I am a Ph.D. student working at Tyndall National Institute, UCC - I design new antenna and wireless communication systems :) and I love science!
I have been living in cork for 1 year now. I play guitar, do photography, sketching, and watch a lot of Netflix ;). I am a big fan of sherlock holmes and use the same methods of deductions for my science problems sometimes (well almost).
I love cats and at one time I had 4 white cats and a big black cat who never would let me do my work. I miss them here in cork.
My Work: Have you ever wondered how the voice you speak on your mobile phone can reach all across the world? Well, it is because of these things called Antennas. I am a researcher finding new ways of designing these antennas :)
As of now, my work involves designing a wireless communication system – which includes a transmitter and a receiver.
My specification is on chipless and battery-less antennas – ( For Ex. which means that you can have a sticker of on your hand which can work as an antenna in future to tell your mobile device what your temperature is 🙂 )
I am using a similar technique to study the health of cows because animals need health care too, don’t they?
My Typical Day: My work involves a lot of reading and software work. After I create a design on the computer, I can send it to manufacturing and test it in our laboratory at Tyndall.
