With industrial experience as an RF planning engineer (GSM, UMTS, CDMA, W-CDMA and LTE network) and with research experience in antenna design and wireless propagation modelling, actively seeking for a full-time position as an antenna design and RF engineer, where I will be able to engage my skills and experience for the betterment of the organization. Work Experience

Georgia Southern University, Statesboro, GA [Jan, 2016 – Dec, 2017 ] Graduate Research/Teaching Assistant

• Design antennas in microwave design software (CST, Feko, HFSS, XFDTD).

• Fabricate the antennas and measure the antenna parameters (S11, gain, axial ratio) for verification.

• Develop code for processing the antenna measurement results in MATLAB.

• Worked as an instructor for signal processing lab and electrical circuit analysis lab. Grameenphone Ltd., Dhaka, Bangladesh [Jan, 2014 – Dec, 2015] RF Planning Engineer

• Perform single site/cluster drive test for GSM/UMTS network, analyze the drive test logs and post process with TEMS tools for field level performance analysis

• Cell Planning & Monitoring Key Performance Identification (KPI) in Ericsson and Huawei system

• Perform physical and soft parameter planning and optimization

• Link budget estimation for best coverage solution

• Follow up TCH congestion in GSM network using Radio Dimensioning Tool (RDT) and provide solution accordingly

• Antenna optimization for coverage solution

• Analyzing and ensuring proper solution for improving radio network quality using Atoll, MapInfo, Google Earth and other similar software.

Tests performed:

Drive Test

Perform the drive test using TEMS to measure and assess the coverage, capacity and Quality of Service (QoS) of the mobile radio network. Post-process the log data and creating thematic map in MapInfo to find out the problematic routs and propose solution accordingly.
