Personal Summary

ORCID ID – https://orcid.org/0000-0002-9147-4580

Mohammed Taj-Eldin received the Bachelor of Science in Informatics Engineering (Telecommunications) from the University of Aleppo, Syria, 2008, Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering (Communications Engineering) from the Florida Institute of Technology, USA, 2011, and the PhD in Electrical (RF) Engineering from the Kansas State University, USA, 2015. His PhD research was funded by NASA and aimed at developing wearable wireless biomedical sensors and wearable antennas for astronauts for future space missions. After his PhD, Dr. Mohammed has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Power Electronics Research Centre at the National University of Ireland Galway. His research was focused on developing novel electromagnetic coils for efficient wireless charging of active medical implantable devices which resulted in an invention disclosure.Mohammed enjoys working with peers, academic & business partners, and clinicians to develop novel solutions which solve real world problems.

Mohammed’s main research areas of interest are in small RF antennas, wireless charging & RF systems, and data communications in various applications including medical devices, wearable solutions, and precision agriculture in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT).
