Research Interests

​Professor Shamim's research is focused on applications like personal area network, automotive radars, wearable and implantable wireless sensors, wireless powering and renewable energy. The following specific research projects are being pursued

  • CMOS RF SoC design (RFICs with on-chip antennas)

  • Antenna design, integration and miniaturization techniques

  • 3D IC packaging and embedded passives in LTCC, LCP and IPD environments for SoP applications

  • Ferrite LTCC based tunable and reconfigurable circuits carbon-based nano radio design (Carbon nano-tube and Graphene mediums)

  • Flexible RF electronics (inkjet printing on paper, plastics, etc)

  • Energy harvesting through ambient resources (infrared, EM)

  • Wearable and Disposable wireless sensors
