EECS welcomes 3 new professors: Dr. Hina Tabassum

Dr. Hina Tabassum joins us as Assistant Professor in July, 2018. Since 2013, she was a research fellow in the area of wireless communications at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Manitoba. She obtained her PhD degree from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia, in 2013. She has published over 50 technical articles in well-reputed IEEE journals, magazines, and conferences. She has been serving as a lead guest editor and technical program committee member in various IEEE venues. She has been recognized as an Exemplary reviewer by IEEE Transactions on Communications in 2015, 2016 and 2017. She received various awards and honors throughout her career. She is a senior member of IEEE and a registered Professional engineer in Canada.

Her primary research interests are in the area stochastic geometry-based cellular network modeling, performance analysis, and optimization of beyond 5G wireless networks enabled with higher frequencies (e.g. mm-wave visible light communication (VLC), free space optics (FSO)).  She is also interested in the application of statistical modeling, game theory, optimization, and machine learning tools in the analysis and design of ultra-reliable and low latency communication (uRLLC) systems, smart grid and renewable energy powered systems, air-borne and underwater drone networks, massive internet-of-things (IoT) and internet-of-vehicles (IoV) communications and virtualized and software defined network (SDN) resource management.

She will teach in areas such as wireless communications, probability and random stochastic processes, optimization and game theory, computer architecture and organisation,  and logic synthesis and switching theory (LDST).
