About:

Zaid Muhi-Eldeen Al-Daher graduated in 2003 with BSc (HONS) in Telecommunication Engineering from the university of Salford (Manchester). He then did a MSc in Communication Engineering at UMIST (University of Manchester) in 2004. Straight after, he joined the Radio Propagation group at Glamorgan as a Ph.D student in 2005. Upon completion in 2008 he joined in 2009 the George Green Institute for Electromagnetical Engineering at Nottingham University and in 2010 he rejoined the University of Glamorgan as a Lecturer.
