The Dean University of Glasgow UESTC at University of Glasgow.DIC, MSc, PhD, SMIEEE, Fellow of Higher Education Academy, University of Glasgow Publications

I obtained my BSc in Electrical Engineering (Electronics and Communications) from the University of Engineering & Technology Lahore in 1999. I worked in industry as a senior design engineer in a Systems Design company for two years. Later, I obtained my MSc degree from Imperial College London in Communications and Signal Processing in 2002. I was awarded the Diploma of Imperial College and the PhD degree from Imperial College and the University of London in 2007. My research thesis was entitled “Resource Optimisation for Cooperative Broadcasting in WCDMA Networks”.

As a postdoc researcher, I worked on the formulation of Information-Theoretic fundamental capacity limits of wireless cellular networks. This work was funded by Mobile Virtual Center of Excellence UK (a consortium of selected UK Universities and Industry). I have also worked on a European Commission EC funded project ROCKET where I worked on efficient techniques to design and operate a wireless cellular communication system.

In 2009, I joined the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences (FEPS) at the University of Surrey as a Lecturer in Communications. I coordinated the University of Surrey team involved in FP7 EC funded project EARTH – looking at Energy Efficient Next Generation of Cellular Networks. The project has won the 2012 Best project for the Future of Internet award. I also lead the Theme 9 of India UK Advanced Technology Centre research – Self Organising Multihop Networks. I also supervised a Huawei funded project on a novel air interface technique: LDS-OFDM.

Currently, I am leading an EPSRC funded project – REDUCE that aims to reshape the energy demand of end-users using ICT and economic incentives. REDUCE project has deployed a wireless sensor network in CCSR building to monitor and control energy demand of users using persuasive techniques and communication technology. I am a work package leader for IU-ATC phase II funded by EPSRC. I am co-supervising the Huawei funded Green Communications project and Sony funded Machine to Machine communication projects.
