The Wireless InnovationS in Engineering (WISE) research group undertakes cutting-edge wireless research at the physical-layer, device-level, and protocol-level. Current research activities are focused on next-generation (B5G/6G) wireless systems, microwave and millimetre-wave radio frequency structures, radio frequency based sensing and energy harvesting, and others.

The research group is made up of academic staff members and postgraduate students from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE). The staff members are:
