Vikram Sekar is currently working as a Senior EM modeling engineer at Peregrine Semiconductor, 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.

Research Interests 

  • 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.
