Muhammad Haroon Tariq is a PhD candidate at Aalborg University in Denmark. He studied Electrical Engineering with majors in Telecommunication from COMSATS University Islamabad in 2011, where his final year project was on compact antenna design for LTE applications. He obtained his masters degree from the NUST-Military College of signals (2014), where his MS thesis was devoted to the topic of microwave beamforming using frequency selective surfaces. From Nov. 2015 to Dec. 2016 he was a postgraduate researcher at Frederick University in Nicosia, Cyprus, where he worked on dynamically reconfigurable RF devices and SWIPT systems. He is currently an early stage researcher (ESR) for the European ITN Project PAINLESS, for which he works on the topic of energy-autonomous portable access points. His research interests include microwave engineering, wireless communication systems, electromagnetic theory, radio wave propagation, antenna design and RF design and energy harvesting. He has published two journal articles and two conference papers on these topics and was the recipient of an Erasmus Mundus scholarship. He has earned 1st place in an All-Pakistan Electronics Olympiad and 2nd place in an All-Pakistan Entrepreneurship Forum, both in 2011.
