M. R. Hamid received the M.Sc. degrees in communication engineering from the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Johor Bahru, Malaysia, in 2001 and the Ph.D Degree at the University of Birmingham, Birmingham, U.K. in 2011. He has been with Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FKE), UTM, since 1999. Currently his position is a Senior Lecturer. His major research interest is reconfigurable antenna design for multimode wireless applications. He was awarded a scholarship from the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia to further study in the U.K.

One of his work has been selected as a feature article in Electronics Letters volume 46, issue 21 which highlights the advances made in a paper called 'Multimode Vivaldi Antenna'. More information on the featured article called 'Vivaldi steps up a notch' can be found here.

His other work has also been picked up in the 'In brief' section of the Electronics Letters volume 46, issue 7 which points out the advances made in his paper called 'Switchable Filtering in Vivaldi Antenna' More information on the highlighted work called VIVALDI'S 7TH can be found here.
