Office Hours: Wednesday 13:30-17:00


We cover several research themes related to modern electromagnetics. We are keen to understand and discover fundamental limits of electromagnetic structures such as electrically small radiators, ultra thin absorbers, dynamic control of antenna beams and tunable/smart materials. New physical concepts such as transformation optics and metamaterials are playing an ever-growing part in future electrical and electronic engineering, they are enhanced by effective modelling tools, fast computer programs and optimisation techniques sprung from artificial intelligence and machine learning. Nanotechnology and nanomaterials are also key enablers for future technological development, where novel mechanisms of wave radiation, absorption and propagation will be developed. We are very excited to be a part of interdisciplinary research and development driven by curiosity and applicability. We foresee that our research will generate long-lasting impacts in the academia, industry and society, just like what we have done in "body-centric wireless communications", "transformation optics and metamaterials" and "graphene and 2D materials".
