This month, we are pleased to present the maiden edition of the Arewa Rising Award to Abdulkadir Hamidu Alkali in the Outstanding Student category. Abdulkadir is a doctoral student in Medical Electronics at the Sheffield Hallam University in the United Kingdom. His research is at an advanced stage in developing a new non-contact equipment to monitor the respiration activity of patients for the Sheffield Children's Hospital. The cutting edge '4fa' respiration monitoring technique works through recording thermal imagery of the patients as they breathe. According to the Materials and Engineering Research Institute (MERI); at Sheffield Hallam University, the equipment has the potential to make a real impact in the medical world, with opportunities for it to be used in a range of different medical environments such as hospitals in the UK as well as hospitals in developing countries. Abdulkadir attended the Federal Government College Sokoto for his secondary education and the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University in Bauchi for his bachelor's degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
