Husnain Ali Kayani was born in Jhelum, Pakistan, in 1989. He received his BE in electrical engineering from National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Islamabad, Pakistan, in 2011. He received his MS in electrical engineering from Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Belgium and Polytechnic University of Turin (PdT), Italy, in 2015. He had worked as “Core Network Engineer” in Mobilink Pakistan from 2011 to 2013. Currently he is pursuing his PhD at UCL in electrical engineering. He has been working on Electronically Steerable Parasitic Array Radiators (ESPARs) for the base station antennas of 5G communication systems. He is also working on the development of RF front-ends and antennas for automotive RADARs. 

He had won scholarship from NUST throughout his BE from 2007 to 2011. He was a recipient of Erasmus Mundus Scholarship from European Union for a double degree MS program from 2013 to 2015.

He likes to play tennis, football and badminton in his free time. He also likes travelling and adventure.

Research Interests

His research interests are antenna design, phased arrays, reconfigurable antennas, RF circuit design, RF front end design and RFIC design.
