I am a faculty member in the School of Electronic Engineering & Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, as well as a lecturer in Microwave & Millimetrewave Antennas, and a member of the Antennas & Electromagnetics Research Group (AEG). Within the School I am head of the Senior Tutor team and the undergraduate Senior Tutor.
My BSc (2003) and PhD (2008), both in Electrical Engineering, and my MA (2008) in Mathematics, were all obtained at the Pennsylvania State University. My research there was carried out in Prof. Mike Lanagan's Microwave Lab, in the Materials Research Laboratory. I was co-supervised by Prof. Raj Mittra. I was involved in a number of projects, including materials characterisation, LTCC-based device design, computational electromagnetics, as well as investigation into the new (at the time) field of metamaterials.
From 2008 to 2012 I was a postdoc at QMUL on the TSB-funded project AMULET (Advanced Materials for Ubiquitous Leading-edge Electromagnetic Technologies). On the completion of the project, I took up a lecturing post, which I continue to hold. My more recent projects include metamaterials, transformation electromagnetics, active and reconfigurable structures, and terahertz sensing of surface plasmon polaritons. Projects funders have included Selex ES, Cobham plc, Servomex, and Innovate UK. For more details of my current research activities, go to The Rajab Group page.
