Prof Mohamed-Slim Alouini appointed as next WWRF Fellow
Professor Alouini is a Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), Affiliate Professor of Applied Mathematics and Computational Science (AMCS), Affiliate Professor of Statistics (STAT), and Principal Investigator of the Communication Theory Lab (CTL) of the King Abdullah University of Sciences and Technology (KAUST), Thuwal, Makkah Province, Saudi Arabia. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Pasadena, California, United States of America, in 1998. His general research interests include design and performance analysis of diversity combining techniques, MIMO techniques, multi-hop/cooperative communications systems, optical wireless communication systems, cognitive radio systems, green communication systems and networks, and integrated ground-airborne-space networks. He is currently actively working on addressing the uneven global distribution, access to, and use of information and communication technologies by studying and developing new generations of aerial and space networks as a solution to provide connectivity to far-flung, less-populated and hard-to-reach areas. He has been a long-time supporter of WWRF and we are very pleased that he will be joining us at our 48th meeting in Abu Dhabi on 9th November to give his Fellow’s address.
