My courses

  • CompMeth / Spring 2020 - Computational Methods for digital communications

    Computational methods in digital communications provides a selection of hands-on experiments in programming and implementation techniques for high-performance computing applied to telecommunications. Students will learn architecture concepts and how to optimize software to implement different types of algorithms efficiently on software-based systems.

    Teaching methods: The course is primarily given in a lab setting leveraging guided personal work. The instructor gives some lecture material progressively during the course of the lab-sessions in an on-demand fashion. The mini-project teamwork includes regular 45 minutes review meetings with the instructor and teaching assistants to overview progress on the subject.

    Grading: 50% final mini-project work and presentation, 50% grading of lab sessions.

  • DigiCom / Fall 2020 - Digital communications

    Digital communications is the study of physical layer transmission and reception strategies in communications equipment such as mobile communication devices, high-speed ethernet, optical communications and subscriber-line communications. It comprises the areas of (i) statistical modelling of communication channels (ii) design of coding and modulation systems for error resiliency (iii) design of demodulation and decoding strategies and the associated methods for assessing their performance. In addition to providing an overview of communication channels and classical modulation strategies, this course takes a hands-on approach by focusing on the details of a few critical elements of digital communications pertaining to modern wireless transceivers, both coherent and non-coherent.

    Teaching and Learning Methods :: Lectures and hands-on lab sessions in MATLAB using signals acquired from local 4G networks.

    Course Policies : Attendance to lab sessions is mandatory.



  • In 2011 he received a Best Student Paper Award with his co-authors Rizwan Ghaffar, Umer Salim and Irfan Ghauri for the article "Mixed CSIT DL channel: gains with interference aware receivers" (European Wireless Conference 2011)
