Ahmed El Oualkadi
Ahmed El Oualkadi received B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics and electronics from the Abdelmalek Essaadi University, Tetuan, Morocco, in 1998 and 2000, respectively. He received Ph.D. degree in electronics from the University of Poitiers, France, in 2004. From 1998 to 2000, he was a research assistant in the Electronics & Microwaves Laboratory, Tetuan, Morocco. During this period, he worked in numerical modeling methods (TLM & FDTD) in computational electromagnetic and computer-aided design of microwave circuits. From 2000 to 2003, he was a research assistant in the Laboratoire dâ€™Automatique et dâ€™Informatique Industrielle - Ecole SupÃ©rieure dâ€™IngÃ©nieurs de Poitiers, Electronics & Electrostatics Research Unit, University of Poitiers, France. In 2004, he was an assistant professor at University Institute of Technology, AngoulÃªme, France. During this period, he worked, in collaboration with EADS-TELECOM, on various European projects (CORMORAN & MULTIMODULES) which concern the nonlinear analysis & RF circuit design of switched- capacitor filters for radio-communication systems. In 2005, he joined the UniversitÃ© Catholique de Louvain, Microelectronics Laboratory, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, where he worked on the analog and mixed design of low power high temperature circuits and systems, in SOI technology, for wireless communication. During this period, he has managed and participated in several European and regional projects (EUREKA, A 109 Witness, MEDEA+, CROTALE...) in the areas of wireless communication and sensor networking. Currently, he is an assistant professor in the Abdelmalek Essaadi University, National school of applied sciences of Tangier, Morocco. His main research interest is the analog IC, mixed-signal and RFIC design for wireless communication, embedded system applications and information technology. He is author/co-author of more than 40 publications and communications in recognized journals and international conferences. He is a member of European Microwave Association and an active IEEE volunteer member associated to the Circuits & Systems Society where he is a reviewer of IEEE circuits and systems journals (TCAS I & TCAS II) and many conferences on circuits and systems (ISCAS, ICECSâ€¦). He is a member of the scientific and technical committee of WCECS (World Congress on Engineering and Computer Science) and WASET (World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology), and a member of the editorial board of Recent Patents on Electrical Engineering edited by Bentham Science Publishers.
