Center of Excellence for Telecom Applications (CETA)

I earned my Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) in 2016. I finished my degree a year early with first honor, a unique achievement in the college of Engineering at KFUPM. I took part in the exchange program where I studied at MIT for one semester taking average credit hours and got a perfect score. In 2015, I took a summer research internship at King Abdullah University for Science and Technology (KAUST). I worked on High Resolution Range Estimation of Targets. The goal was to design range estimation radar using fast-Fourier transform based algorithms, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar and a wide-band chirp signal. I was responsible for the simulation, implementation and testing of the system. In my senior project, I lead my team in designing an optical targeting system. I worked on designing the algorithm, implementing the system and testing of the project. After graduation, I worked in the Process and Control Department in Aramco for 5 months where I worked on designing, reviewing and testing control systems for measurement purposes. Currently I work as researcher at CETA on a Massive MIMO Systems project. Our aim is to investigate the estimation of the angle of arrival for the cases of uniform linear array and 2-D array as well. We are also investigating the semi-blind channel estimation for Massive MIMO. My research interests span a wide range of fields from communication systems to machine learning.
