Johannesburg, South Africa. {Married}

I have about 5 years of experience in the design of low noise amplifier (Analog IC design in a MMIC capacity) and another 2 years in the design, deployment and operation of the IMS core network. In the latter, I was mployed as a Core network Engineer while at the former, I am a researcher at the millimeter wave frequency.I led my team in Telkom South Africa in cutover and the deployment of a new technology to existing and new subscribers. All this was done before I started my PhD at the University of Johannesburg. Sandwiched between this two work experience is my Double Master degree (M.sc and M.Tech) from Twshane University of Technology and ESIEE Amien

I am an efficient, responsible and resourceful team player in a dynamic environment giving a unique contribution towards achieving organizational goals in relation to professional engineering practice worldwide. I am encouraged when I gain fundamental experience and expertise in any area of engineering applicable to resolving problems. I desired to solve problem in a fast paced world of ours.

RESEARCH STATEMENT

I have published 5 conferences and 1 journal paper, in which I showed my research acumen and capabilities in discussing the application of raptor code on the application layer of an OSI. Similarly, I have published about the Low noise amplifier in the millimeter-wave (60 GHz). In this area, the design, simulation, layout drawing, and tape out of IC have been carried out. Optimization of the layout and check for Electromigration, IR drop analysis has also be considered in full details.

Currently, I am writing my thesis and working additional publications which would be sent out for review. I have been opportune to grant from NRF for 3 years (ongoing) and the Knowledge, Innovation, collaboration (KIC) grant in 2017. This was utilized in conference attendance in Quebec, Canada while attending URSI GASS., 2017.

In respect to future research, I would like to utilize my Knowledge in MMIC design and Core network in the next generation communication which is Visible light communication (VLC). VLC, an emerging technology for high-speed and short-range optical communications, has been stimulating worldwide research. Even though it is still at the inception stage, the bandwidth of the VLC would useful in data communication. An added advantage is the immunity against interference from other magnetic sources.
