Tabinda Ashraf

PhD Student, Munster Technological University

My research interests include design and development of emerging technologies in wireless communication networks for 5G and beyond, PHY/MAC layer design and synchronization, link adaptation for reliable communication, software defined radio, cooperative communication, and MIMO systems. For past five years I have worked as a lab engineer at the Department of Electrical Engineering, College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST). During this period, I have been actively involved in conducting undergraduate labs, designing laboratory manuals, assigning and evaluating projects for various undergraduate level courses. I am a soft-skilled person with friendly and pleasant personality making me easily approachable, easy to communicate, an excellent team player.
