About me

Djuradj Budimir received his Dipl. Ing. and MSc degrees in electronic engineering from the University of Belgrade, Serbia, and his PhD degree in electronic and electrical engineering from the University of Leeds, UK.

In March 1994, he joined the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Kings College London, University of London. Since January 1997, he has been with the Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Westminster, where he is now a Reader of wireless communications and leads the Wireless Communications Research Group.

His research interests include the advanced design of circuits from RF through Microwave to Millimetre-wave frequencies for 3G, 4G, and 5G mobile broadband wireless communications, Ultra-Wideband (UWB) and WLAN applications; compact tunable and reconfigurable filters for multiband and multi-standard wireless transceivers, advanced linearisation concepts for mobile broadband wireless transmitters, graphene-based electronic devices and systems, wireless power transmission, wireless and electromagnetics in medicine, biomedical wireless technologies, and numerical electromagnetics.

Dr Budimir has authored or co-authored over 280 peer-reviewed papers in the most reputable journals such as IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, and other prestigious journals and conferences. He is the author of the book Generalized Filter Design by Computer Optimization (Artech House, 1998) and Software and Users Manual EPFIL-Waveguide E-plane Filter Design (Artech House, 2000) and a chapter in the book Encyclopedia of RF and Microwave Engineering (Wiley, 2005).

He is also a regular referee for IET Electronic Letters, IET Microwaves, Antennas, and Propagation, IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II and Proceedings of the IEEE, and International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer Aided Engineering.

Dr Budimir is a member of several International conference Technical Program Committees. He has given over 20 invited presentations at workshops, conferences and seminars. He has supervised 13 PhD research students as the main supervisor/director of studies to successful completion and is currently supervising 8 PhD students as the main supervisor/DoS. He has also supervised over 100 MSc projects (15+ with Distinction) and over 100 MEng/BEng projects. So far over 10 of his BEng/MSc projects have led to publication in IEEE/IET conferences. He has won awards for his journal papers.

Dr Budimir is a Member of the EPSRC Peer Review College and a Charter Engineer.
