Muhammad Waqar Azhar

Researcher at Computer Engineering (Chalmers)

I am a computer system architect with a passion for designing innovative products. Having experience in electrical and computer engineering allows me to have a holistic view of product implementation ideas and develop optimal solutions for electronic system design problems. I have competence in both hardware and software and also in co-design. Most importantly, I have an appetite always for learning new things. I have extensive experience designing embedded systems employing a variety of platforms, e.x., MCU, FPGA, and SBC. In addition, I have worked with application domains such as industrial communication, security, IoT, real-time control, and power electronics control.
