Biography

My interests are in applied Antenna and RF/EM Engineering. In research, I address electronic sustainability challenges through the combination of "RF-enabled" technologies and materials. I am also passionate about RF engineering education and research communication, for attracting more students to bridge the skills gap in the RF industry

Mahmoud received his EEE BEng (First Class Hons.) in September 2018, and his award-winning PhD in Rectenna Design (submitted in 26 months) in April 2021, from the University of Southampton.

Dr. Wagih joined the University of Glasgow in June 2022, where he holds an Intelligence Community (IC) Research Fellowship from the Royal Academy of Engineering on the topic of RF-enabled energy harvesting, and is currently a UKIC Fellow and Proleptic Lecturer (Assitant Professor). He is a member of the Centre for Advanced Electronics (CAE) Management Team and a theme co-lead for Antennas & Wireless RF Systems. 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 around £2M, published over 90 journal and conference papers in leading IEEE and high-impact venues, and has delivered several invited talks at top research groups, consortia, and labs in both academia and industry. He is also keen on public engagement and outreach, with several award-winning presentations. 

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 Research England 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 on Secondment, 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.
