Research Description

I am working on the development of a multi-static harmonics radar system setup for tracking of pollinators. The system setup includes, 9.41GHz and 2.0kW transmitter, an UAV loaded with highly sensitive mobile RADAR receiver for target tracking and efficient micro transponder tags that has to be loaded on pollinators for the study of their movements. I am mainly working of the development of the RADAR setup and fabrication of micro tags which is an interest of Microwave Engineering subject. This project is a collaboration between the departments of Plant Sciences and Engineering Sciences at the University of Oxford.
