Vikram Sekar is currently working as a Senior
modeling engineer at Peregrine
San Diego, CA. He obtained his PhD degree in Electrical
Engineering in 2011 from Texas
A&M University. He graduated with a
Masters in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2008
and a Bachelors in Telecommunications from R V College of
Engineering, Bangalore, India in 2006. In the summers of 2007 and
2008, he was an RF design intern at Texas Instruments, Dallas, where he worked on PCB
modeling and signal integrity.
He has authored and co-authored about 15 peer-reviewed articles in
leading journals and conferences. From 2008 to 2011, he was also a
teaching and research assistant in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering at
Texas A&M University. He was awarded 3rd place in the student
paper competition held as part of the 2011 IEEE MTT-S International
Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Baltimore, MD, for his work on dual-band
half-mode substrate-integrated-waveguide filters.
- Electromagnetic modeling techniques, tunable
microwave filters, nonlinearity and noise in tunable circuits, RF MEMS,
multi-band and ultra-wideband filters, filter miniaturization, and
material measurement methods.
I also like to think of myself as a part-time musician. I am a trained classical pianist and a self-taught guitarist.
