Kush Agarwal received his Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering from the College of Engineering Roorkee, Roorkee, India, in 2010, and the Master’s degree in Communications Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2013. He recently finished his Ph.D. degree under the joint supervision of Prof. Yong-Xin Guo (NUS), Prof. Maysam Ghovanloo (GeorgiaTech), and Prof. Nitish V. Thakor (NUS/Johns Hopkins) on a Graduate Research Scholarship from the National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore in 2018. Kush was a Software Developer with the CGI Group Inc., Montreal, QC, Canada, from 2010 to 2011. He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, NUS, in 2012, under the supervision of Prof. Yong-Xin Guo for research on wearable and implantable antennas and sensors. During his masters, Kush was researching on metamaterial-based circularly polarized antennas at the RF, Antenna, and Optical Department, Institute for Infocomm Research, A*STAR, Singapore. His doctoral research focused on developing novel wireless powering and telemetry technologies towards flexible bioelectronic implantables. Kush has authored close to a dozen refereed journal publications, four filed patents in Singapore, and has co-founded two companies. His current research interests include electromagnetics for biomedical implantable & wearable applications, electrical and biological safety, RF energy harvesting & wireless power for biomedical applications and IoTs, RFID, near-field sensing, and microstrip antennas for various wireless applications.

Dr. Agarwal is a Senior Member of the IEEE, and an Executive Committee Member of IEEE Singapore Section, where he co-chairs and leads the professional activities of IEEE in this region.  He is affiliated with the IEEE Antennas and Propagation, Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, and Engineering in Medicine and Biology Societies. Kush was a recipient of the Young Scientist Award from the International Union of Radio Science, in 2012, and the European Microwave Association Student Grants in 2012 and 2013 for attending European Microwave Conferences at Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Nuremberg, Germany, for his master’s research work. He was selected to represent NUS at the Global Young Scientists Summit (GYSS), Singapore in 2017 during his doctoral studies.
