Saleem Shahid is a Ph.D. Candidate of Information Technology under Erasmus Mundus - INTACT program, in the Department of Electronics, Information and Bio-engineering (DEIB) at Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi), Italy. He has received Bachelor’s degree in Electrical (Telecommunication) Engineering from COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, Islamabad in 2011 and Master’s degree in Electrical (RF and Microwave) Engineering from NUST School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Islamabad in 2013. His Master’s thesis was related to antenna and propagation for body centric wiresless commmunication. His research interest includes Terahertz Antennas, Terahertz Imaging Systems, Body Area Networks.
The PhD research work is focused on terahertz imaging using arrays implementation and processing of the data/information for transmission and reception. The possible applications of this research work are biomedical imaging for detection and diagnoses of cancer, non-destructive testing and detection of structural defection in objects, security scanning and communication systems with ultra-high data rates.
