Mohammad Hasmi

Associate Professor in RF Circuits 

Mohammad Hashmi attended Prifysgol Caerdydd (Cardiff University) for a PhD degree in Electronics Engineering, Technische Universit�t Darmstadt for an MS degree in Information and Communication Engineering, and Aligarh Muslim University for a BTech degree in Electrical Engineering. He carried out his doctoral research at the Agilent Center for High Frequency Engineering. Since 2012, he has been a member of the faculty at IIIT Delhi. He will be joining Nazarbayev University in September 2017. Previously he had stints at Philips Technology Center in Nuremberg, Thales Design Center in Berlin, and iRadio Lab in Calgary. 

Dr. Hashmi works in the broad area of RF Electronics with particular emphasis on RF Measurements, RF and Mixed Signal Electronics, PA Design, Modeling and Linearization. His immediate research focus is on developing innovative design methodologies for multi-band RF/microwave circuits and systems for enabling optimal SDR applications and 'Green Communications'. In addition, he also investigates innovative solutions for implantable devices and their test & evaluation. He is also fully engaged with this beautiful startup. 

His awards and achievements include DAAD-Siemens Scholarship (2001), Nokia Fellowship (2005-2008), UK Govt's Dorothy Hodgkin Award (2005-2009), best paper award at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (2009), third prize in the IEEE-MTT originality and creativity competition (2008), ARFTG Microwave Measurement Fellowship (2008), Young Researcher Grant from INMMiC (2008), Alberta Innovates Fellowship (2009-2011), and Young Faculty Research Fellowship (2016 - 2021) from DeitY, Govt of India. He has co-authored the book titled "Load-Pull Techniques with Applications to Power Amplifier Design".
