Dr. Sadiq Alhuwaidi was born in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia on January 27, 1987. He received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Colorado, U.S.A., in 2011, 2014, and 2017, respectively.
Between 2013 and 2017, he was a research/teaching assistant at the University, where he became a lecturer for two years in 2016-2017 teaching Microwave Measurements Laboratory and mentoring the UCCS Applied Electromagnetics and Anechoic Chamber Laboratory. Between 2011 and 2012, he joined the design team in DAR Engineering as an electrical/protection design engineer designing high voltage services. He was also an associate field professional in the Wireline and Perforating Services of Halliburton.
Dr. Sadiq had the opportunity to perform theoretical/experimental research and independent studies. The significance of his research contributions has been demonstrated in three accepted and published papers besides participating in a high-impact, referred, top-notch conference (2015 IEEE Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference (BioCAS)). He received the “Outstanding Ph.D. student award” from the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs on May 3rd, 2018.
His M.S. research dealt with disease diagnostics of biological tissues using free-space technique in terahertz frequency range and his Ph.D. research was on 3D modeling, analysis, and design of a traveling-wave tube using a modified ring-bar structure with rectangular transmission lines geometry.
His recent emphasis is in applied electromagnetic fields, RF/microwave systems, traveling wave tubes (TWT), antenna designs, solid state and semiconductor devices, bio-engineering technology using microwave applications, and terahertz electronics.
