Milen Paskov

BiographyMilen_img1

Milen Paskov was born in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1988. He received a BSc in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Jacobs University Bremen, Germany, in 2010. During his studies he worked on developing a Genetic Algorithm for an Adaptive Antenna Array, with Dr Mathias Bode and Prof. Jon Wallace.

In 2010 he joined UCL to pursue an MSc in Spacecraft Technologies and Satellite Communications. For his thesis he worked with Dr Kenneth Tong on developing a Wideband Circular Polarization Antenna.

In October 2011 he began his PhD with the Optical Network Group at UCL under the supervision of Dr Seb Savory.
