Fawad Sheikh, PMP, received the M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees in Computer Science and Communication Engineering from University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, in 2017 and 2006, respectively. From 2006 – 2011, he worked for Fraunhofer IMS, KlickTel AG, Vodafone D2 GmbH and Deutsche Telekom AG, respectively, for cellular and IT service management projects. He has been a PMP since 2011.
He joined DSV in January 2012 as a Research Assistant by working in projects Tera50 and Tera50+, A 60 -1000 GHz Wireless Measurement System with 50 GHz Bandwidth, part of a DFG Special Priority Programmes. Since June 2017, he is working as a Research Fellow for the project MARIE, a Collaborative Research Centre/Transregio 196 and pursuing his Ph.D. degree. His current research interests include measurement and modeling of mobile radio channels, Massive MIMO Systems, and mobile material characterization and localization, within the frequency range of 250 GHz to 4 THz.
