[ Hey ], at 14th June, 2010, I finished my study in University of Bedfordshire, Luton, United Kingdom (starts at 11/Sept/06, program: Ph.D) and obtained a Ph.D degree in wireless propagation modelling. I passed RS1 (Registeration) report at 1/March/2007, and I submitted RS4 report at 19/Feb/2008, and passed the mid-term viva at 26/March/2008.
From 3/Feb/2009, I stay at University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland, Fribourg, for about one year (Photos). Since then, I have joined EIA-FR Grid Group, headed by Prof. Pierre Kuonen. This fellowship has enabled me to employ grid technology in my phd project.
On 26/Feb/2010, I have submitted the Ph.D thesis for review. The viva took place on 20/May/2010 and I passed it with minor correction. (RS9 Forms [1] [2] [3], Post Card, Email)
On 14/June/2010, the internal examiner is happy on my correction.
The RGS (Research Graduate School) confirms the award. (1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5)

September, 2010, I joined Ranplan Wireless Network Design Ltd… Luton Office, as a senior research fellow, where I was the main developer/manager of wireless propagation modelling. October, 2011, I was relocated to the Sheffield office.
October 1, 2013, I took up the PostDoc role in University of Sheffield. The Job title is Marie Curie Experienced Researcher. For more details on this role, you can visit the Project page at WiFEEB - Wireless Friendly and Energy Efficient Buildings. My roles include development of tools for the design of wireless and energy efficient buildings and in charge of high frequency ray tracing tools.
April 30, 2015, I resign from the University of Sheffield, and resume the employment with Ranplan (Resignation Letter [DOC], Continous Employment, End of Secondment). On 3/May/2015, I am relocated to the Cambourne office (Cambridgeshire, CB23, United Kingdom).
I am currenly holding a Indefinite Leave to Remain [settlement] Tier-1 visa (Highly migrant) in UK (Expiry: 18/April/2016).
