SDSU Outstanding Faculty Monty Awards 2017 – Dr. Satish Kumar Sharma

(Music) ​Dr.​ ​Satish​ ​Kumar​ ​Sharma​ ​is​ ​a​ ​professor​ San​ ​Diego​ ​State​ ​University’s College​ ​of​ ​Engineering.​ ​He​ ​specializes​ ​in antenna​ ​theory​ ​and​ ​design.​ ​His​ ​research advances​ ​wireless​ ​communication technologies​ ​such​ ​as cell​ ​phones,​ tablets,​ ​and​ ​satellites. I’m the director of the Antenna and Microwave Lab. When I moved here, there was no such program at San Diego State. The ultimate goal of Dr. Sharma’s research is to advance wireless technology and radar applications. Dr. Sharma is at the cutting-edge of this field. ​As​ ​the​ ​director​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Antenna​ ​and Microwave​ ​Lab,​ ​Dr.​ ​Sharma​ ​provides industry-level​ ​expertise​ ​and​ ​mentorship​ ​to​ ​his students. Mentoring is a great experience. They are like my extended family. Dr. Sharma has been really important to my success. I’ve been working with NASA as a student engineer. And what I’ve learned here I’ve been able to apply at NASA. Dr. Sharma always focuses on new trends. The trends which the industries are looking for. He always asks us to not be afraid of challenges. Apart from being the best researcher that I have met, he makes sure that not only we are doing well in academics but also we are doing fine in our personal life as well. My teaching style is very interactive. Not only educated through the books only – rather by building, constructing, designing. (Music) Even if I fail I don’t lose the heart. (Music) Because I always see half full, not half empty. If I can accomplish half means I can accomplish the remaining half also. (Music)
