Published: 10 June 2021

Dr Mahmoud Wagih, a SEMS group PhD graduate and current Research Fellow, has won two Doctoral College awards for his PhD research. The Research Awards, held during the University of Southampton's "Festival of Doctoral Research", recognise the exceptional contribution of doctoral researchers to research group, School, Faculty or University research strategy, resulting in a publication of excellent quality (equivalent to REF 3*/4*).

The awards received are:

  • School Research Award, for the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS).
  • Best of Faculty Research Award. The awardees were selected from all the School Award winners and finalists across the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences (FEPS).

The awards were received for "Establishing a track record in a new field of research through an exceptional number of high-quality publications from a PhD", based on 8 IEEE Transaction and Journal publications on wearable RF energy harvesting and antenna design, and several award-winning conference papers.

Mahmoud’s PhD was supervised by Prof Steve Beeby and Dr Alex Weddell, and contributed to joint research activities under the EU EnABLES project.

Steve said "Mahmoud is an exceptionally talented researcher whose ground-breaking work on millimetre-wave energy harvesting and wearable antennas has established a new field of research within ECS. These awards recognise his important contributions. Congratulations Mahmoud!"
