Dr. Wagih joined the University of Glasgow in June 2022, where he holds an Intelligence Community Research Fellowship from the Royal Academy of Engineering on the topic of RF-enabled energy harvesting, and is currently a UK IC Fellow and Proleptic Lecturer (tenured Assitant Professor). He is also a Visiting Fellow in the School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton. He has been PI/Co-I on research projects worth over £370k, published over 70 journal and conference papers in leading IEEE and high-impact venues, and has delivered several invited talks to over 300 researchers and engineers at top research groups, consortia, and labs in both academia and industry.

In 2017-2021, he was an undergraduate and postgraduate Research Assistant, at the University of Southampton (UK and Malaysia) on industrial collaborations and research projects (Intel; EPSRC Platform Grant), a Researcher Co-Investigator on Safeguard a £49.9k EPSRC-SPRINT project, and has worked on consultancy projects (ECS Partners Ltd.). He was an EU H2020-EnABLES funded PhD student from 2018 to 2020. He was a Hardware Verification Engineering Intern, in 2018, and a Research Intern, in 2020, at Arm Ltd., UK. He was appointed as a post-doctoral research fellow, in 2021, and promoted to senior research fellow later in the same year, at the University of Southampton.

Research interests

My interests are in RF-enabled sustainable electronics, broadly covering:

  • RF Energy Harvesting and wireless power transfer (WPT):
    • Rectenna development from sub-1 GHz to mmWave bands for low-power, long-range applications.
    • Near-field high-power resonant WPT including novel range-improvement mechanisms
    • Experimental Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer (SWIPT) and practical signal design for WPT.
    • Fully-integrated (CMOS) and discrete (COTS) circuit-antenna co-design
  • Body-centric antennas and propagation.
  • Energy Harvesting Systems: 
    • circuits & systems to interface with and extract uW-level power for sustainable and pervasive electronic devices.
    • Low-power communication, e.g. passive backscattering.
  • Additively manufactured electronics: interested in the co-design of electronic circuits and their packaging and manufacturing methods to realize high-performance devices while minimizing the overheads of the electronics manufacturing industry.
  • Green and sustainable electronics: identifying novel applications of green (biodegradable, biocompatible, and low-carbon footprint) materials in the electronics industry, focusing on the realization of near-zero-footprint wireless systems.
