Izzat Darwazeh received a graduate degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Jordan, Amman, in 1984 followed by M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Manchester, U.K., in 1986 and 1991, respectively.

He currently holds the University of London Chair of Communications Engineering and leads the 70-strong Communications and Information Systems Group in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at University College London. He has authored or coauthored more than 250 book chapters and papers in the areas of optical and wireless communications and monolithic microwave integrated circuits and high-speed/frequency circuits. He coedited Analogue Optical Fibre Communications (IEE, 1995) and was a coeditor of the 2008 Elsevier-Newness book on electrical engineering. He has also co-authored two books entitled, 'On Linear Circuit Analysis and Modelling' (Elsevier, 2005) and, 'Microwave Active Circuit Analysis and Design' (Academic Press, 2015). He currently teaches mobile and wireless communications and circuit design, and his research activities include ultrahigh-speed microwave circuits and wireless and optical communication systems. In 2003, he proposed (with M. Rodrigues) the Spectrally Efficient Frequency-Division Multiplexing (SEFDM) concept and has been working in this area since then. 

Professor Darwazeh acts as a consultant/advisor to various academic and industrial organisations and to commercial, governmental and legal bodies in the UK and overseas.

Prof. Darwazeh is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the IET, and a Fellow of the Institute of Telecommunications Professionals (FITP).

His research interests include:

  • Wireless communication systems (5G and beyond)
  • Spectrally efficient systems and new signal formats for wireless and optical communications.
  • Visible Light Communication (VLC) circuits and systems.
  • Multi-Gbit/s MIC, MMIC and OEIC circuits for optical and mobile communications.
  • Distributed amplifier structures for 100 GHz.
  • Wireless systems Quality of Service (QoS) modelling and optimisation.
