His research interests include antenna design for 5G/6G, MIMO antennas, Array antenna for beam-forming and beam steering, wireless on-body communications, in-body communications (implantable antenna), RF and microwave communication systems, and antenna diversity. He is a Member of IET, an Executive Member of Antenna and Propagation, Malaysia Chapter, and a Member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, the IEEE Communication Society, the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society, an Associate Editor for Electronics Letters and IET Microwaves, Antennas and Propagation, and an Academic Editor for the International Journal of Antennas and Propagation. He is currently serving as a Director of International Office of UTHM since August 2022 In 2020, he received a recognition as one of Top Research Scientists Malaysia from Academy of Sciences Malaysia (TRSM) due to his achievement and contributions in this field. One of his significant contributions was the implementation of the Wireless Bridging System with Relay at Kampung Kuala Pajam, Selangor where he has collaborated with the Academy Sciences of Malaysia, Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), Ministry of Rural Development (KPLB) and TM One. This project has obtained much attention and an eye-catcher from many parties as it provides a frugal solution for the internet coverage extension to under-served and unserved areas.
