Akhil Shah is a physics Ph.D. student at UC Los Angeles. After finishing his undergraduate studies in physics and electrical engineering at UC Irvine in 2000, he worked as an engineer in the Wireless Products division of Conexant Systems until 2001, when he began his Master's program in electrical engineering at UCLA. At the same time, Shah accepted a Master's fellowship from Northrop Grumman Space Technology (formerly TRW Space and Electronics) where he has designed high-frequency integrated circuits and modeled novel photonics devices. His research in the Opto-Electronics Circuits and Sytems laboratory at UCLA culminated in a Master's thesis and journal article entitled "Adaptive Equalization for Broadband Predistortion of Optical Transmitters," in December 2003.
Shah's academic interests include applied mathematics, computational physics, and science policy. On those occasions spent away from a computer or laboratory, he enjoys kayaking, running, and traveling.
