Dr Mona Jaber


Lecturer in Internet of Things

Room Number: Engineering, Eng 212


Dr Mona Jaber is a Lecturer on the Internet of Things at Queen Mary University of London. She is a leading expert in mobile communication with a specialisation in radio and backhaul design of cellular networks; a topic in which she published multiple articles including the top 75 most cited paper in IEEE Access. Since joining QMUL in 2019, she started a new research group that examines the intersection between IoT and machine learning in the context of sustainable living. Three fast evolving research directions have emerged where the first investigates multi-modal data in the modelling of urban mobility, the second examines data privacy-preserving machine learning for smart energy and health, and the third elaborates the digital twin paradigm as a simulation platform for IoT-enabled sustainable living.

Before joining QMUL, she led the IoT Research Group, at Fujitsu Laboratories of Europe, from 2017 to 2019, where she researched IoT-driven solutions for the automotive industry. She earned Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering in 2017 (5GIC, University of Surrey, UK), Master’s in Electrical and Communications Engineering in 2014 (American University of Beirut, Lebanon) and B.E. in Computer and Communication Engineering in 1996 (American University of Beirut, Lebanon).


Microprocessor Systems Design (BUPT joint programme)

The course examines the structure, programming and applications of microprocessor and microcontroller devices. There will be practical design and development using microcontroller as part of the module.

Signals and Systems (BUPT joint programme)

Signals and Systems is an introduction to Signal Theory, a discipline that forms an integral part of many engineering systems, including Internet of Things systems. The concepts of continuous-time and discrete-time signals and systems will be introduced, both in the time and in the frequency domains. Fourier approaches will be presented to connect the time and frequency domains and sampling theory will be presented to connect continuous-time to discrete-time signals and systems. Analytical and computational tools will be discussed throughout the module.


Research Interests:

I am broadly interested in machine learning applications for network data analytics with focus on network automation and IoT applications. In particular, my current research interests are shaped by the emerging intersection between smart city and transport applications leading to smart urban mobility. In this context, my research explores the role machine learning and IoT data to model the interaction between the urban planning, traffic control, and urban mobility.

Similarly, my continuing research on network data analytics investigates the application of machine learning techniques to manage the performance of wireless networks and enable an agile user-centric service-provisioning scheme, dubbed as network elasticity.
