Its with great pleasure to announce that PhD student Hesham Omran earned his doctoral degree. Dr Omran worked on Energy-Efficient Capacitance-to-Digital Converters for Low-Energy Sensor Nodes. He managed to publish an impressive 12 published journal papers during his PhD, 5 published conference papers and 3 journals under review.

Congratulations Hesham.
