I received my B.Sc. in electrical engineering from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) in Saudi Arabia. I worked as a graduate assistant at KFUPM for six months and won the best laboratory instructor in the Department of Electrical Engineering. I was also awarded a KFUPM full-funded scholarship to pursue masters and doctoral degrees at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, where I earned my masters degree. I am currently working toward my Ph.D., both in electrical engineering with the main focus on electromagnetics. In the Propagation Group at Georgia Tech, I am working under Professor Gregory Durgin supervision and conducting research pertaining to retrodirective and beamforming techniques that desensitize dependence on the orientation of tags in radio-frequency identification (RFID) systems.
