Hamid Pourshaghaghi is Assistant Professor in the Electronic Systems group of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research primarily focuses on low-frequency space-based radio astronomy, such as the design of DSP digital receivers. Pourshaghaghi’s research domain has the detection and tomography of the 21-cm hydrogen line emission from the Dark Ages period of the universe as its principal science objective. Low-frequency radio astronomy, i.e. below ~30 MHz, can only be done well from space due to the cut-off in the Earth’s ionosphere, the man-made RFI and the AKR and QTN noise that make sensitive measurement from ground-based facilities impossible. <br/><br/>Pourshaghaghi was recently the project manager and team leader for the design and construction of the digital receiver system for the NCLE (Netherlands-China Low Frequency Explorer) radio telescope, which successfully launched to the other side of the Moon in May 2018. <br/><br/>His research at the time of his PhD concerned the synthesis and implementation of adaptive energy-aware circuits and systems.
Space’s preeminent subsystem is digital, and translating digitized signal sensors to data requires scientific design expertise. I develop the technology, design and support digital data processing for space-based radio astronomy science.
Hamid Reza Pourshaghaghi received his PhD from the Electronic Systems group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 2013. He then took a postdoc position at the Astrophysics department of Radboud University. In 2015, Pourshaghaghi and a few colleagues at Radboud University Nijmegen started Radboud Radio Lab (RLL), where he became the Lead Electrical Engineer in 2015 and the program manager in 2018. He has worked as a part-time Assistant Professor at the Electronic Systems group at TU/e since 2016.
