 Highly experienced in the use of MATLAB and Optimised Network Engineering Tool (OPNET) for wireless network modelling. And experienced in the use of the Agilent Design System (ADS) software for transmission line and matching

CAD modelling as well as antenna modelling.

 Basic knowledge in HDVC technology

 Excellent use of LabVIEW for measurements and control of spectrum analysers and signal generators.

 Excellent computing skills – competent user of Microsoft packages including Word, Excel, Power Point, Publisher and Microsoft Project.

Education:

2010 – 2015
Staffordshire University, PhD Communication Engineering

Research: ‘Quality of Service for multimedia and control application in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks ( MANET)’

My PhD work was on Quality of Service for multimedia and control system applications in MANET. It includes modelling of realistic real-time wireless network control system and developing a novel packet scheduling algorithm to optimise the network performance.

2008 – 2009
University of Manchester: MSc Communication Engineering

Dissertation: ‘Ultra Wide Band Positioning System’

The main aim was to determine the position of temperature and humidity sensors in large grain silos. I used a combination of concepts such as ultra wideband (UWB) wireless transmission, antenna design and digital signal processing (DSP) to determine the position of the sensors. A spectrum analyser was used to capture the sensor signals received by the reference UWB antenna. The data was then passed to MATLAB, where DSP techniques such as pass band and range gate filtering, correlation, time difference of arrival (TDoA) estimation and multilateration were used to estimate the positions of the sensors in the silos.

2005 – 200
Eastern Mediterranean University, North Cyprus: BSc Electrical/Electronic Engineering

Dissertation: ‘Development of Advance Travellers Information System’ using the C programming language to implement a system capable of providing a very detailed traffic route of a bus using a GPS. The system was optimised to provide the estimated time of arrival, speed and the distance covered by the bus to and from the bus station or control centre.

Career Summary

September 2010 – Present
Part-time lecturer – Staffordshire University

Modules taught:

 Personal Broadband Networks: CE74024-3 (BSc Telecomunication Engineering)

This module was designed for final year undergraduate students. I taught the fundamental principles of wireless mobile communications such as multipath fading, propagation loss, transmission delay and error correction. I also covered the evolution of mobile radio access technologies from GSM (2G) to Enhanced Data Rate for Global Evolution (EDGE), Wideband CDMA (3G) and finally to LTE, discussing the similarities and differences between their protocol stacks.

 Voice and Data over Broadband Networks: CE01086-M (MSc Telecommunication Engineering)

This module was designed for postgraduate students in telecommunications engineering. I taught  the fundamentals of how a mixture of voice (VoIP) and data traffic can be multiplexed and transmitted over an all IP based network, whilst guaranteeing a suitable quality of service (QoS) for the different types of traffic.

February 2007 – July 2007
Internship program – TUCKCELL Telecom. Limited North Cyprus

 Worked with Ericsson Operating system carrying out daily system maintenance of the Service Delivery platform (SDP), Service Control Point (SCP) and Base Station Controller (BSC) as well as frequency reallocation to alleviate network congestion.

 Daily regression testing and SDP alarm monitoring

 Worked with a group of experienced engineers in designing and implementing a new tariff system.

 Also participated in non-technical roles such as customer assistance and complaints handling, market surveys, organising and attending technical seminars which all helped to develop my soft interpersonal skills.

October 2005 – January 2008
System Administrator – Eastern Mediterranean University (Part Time)

 General system maintenance, software installation, support and maintenance of the servers and computer systems.

 Planning for and responding to service outages and other problems.

 Assisting students that were new to the university’s computing system, helping them to set up user accounts and showing them how to use some of the more obscure software in the university’s computing library.

Relevant Past Project – University of Staffordshire:

 Remote video monitoring system

Communication Skills

 My past experience in teaching technical courses at university level shows that I am an effective communicator and I am able to present highly technical concepts in a clear and concise way.

 I have published research papers in journals and international conferences which attest to my effective writing skills.

 Giving talks and defending my work at international conferences show that I am confident in expressing my ideas to technical and non-technical people.

Awards

 Staffordshire University: Partial Scholarship Award (to undertake a PhD in Communcation Engineering)

Extra Curricular Activities

 Travelling, making friends, reading, sport, music, movies and volunteering work
