Bio


Mamdouh H. Nasr received his bachelor and master’s degrees in Electronics and Communications Engineering from Cairo University in 2011 and 2014, respectively. In 2014, he joined the PhD program in the department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. Mamdouh is pursuing his Ph.D. research at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory under supervision of Professor Sami Tantawi. His research focuses on the design and testing of new accelerator technologies for high gradient and high efficiency operation. Mamdouh is a recipient of the Siemann Graduate Fellowship in Physics at Stanford University for outstanding graduate students doing accelerator research. Mamdouh's research interests include high power devices, microwave circuits and devices, metamaterials, numerical methods in electromagnetics, bio-medical applications of electromagnetics, RF power harvesting, antennas and matching circuits.
