Room Number: Engineering, Eng 204
Office Hours: Tuesday 14:00-16:00


Communication Theory (Postgraduate)

Information theory, modulation schemes, source coding (including space-tome coding), and error correcting coding

Communication Theory (Undergraduate)

This module introduces the basic principles of modern communication systems. The primary objective is to provide fundamental tools and methodologies used in modelling, analyzing and simulating analog and digital communication systems. The following will be covered: Signal representation and spectral analysis, probability theory and random processes, detection and estimation of analog and digital systems in the presence of noise. Simulations are performed using Matlab.

Signals and Systems Theory (Undergraduate)

This module stresses the appreciation and use of certain transform techniques in the analysis of signals, and their related systems. Emphasis is placed on Fourier methods within the context of continuous time signals and signal processing, and the use of linear difference equations and Z transforms when signals are discrete.

Maged Elkashlan received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of British Columbia, Canada, 2006. From 2006 to 2007, he was with the Laboratory for Advanced Networking at University of British Columbia. From 2007 to 2011, he was with the Wireless and Networking Technologies Laboratory at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Australia.During this time, he held an adjunct appointment at University of Technology Sydney, Australia. In 2011, he joined the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, UK, as an Assistant Professor (Lecturer). He also holds visiting faculty appointments at the University of New South Wales, Australia, and Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, China. His research interests fall into the broad areas of communication theory, wireless communications, and statistical signal processing for distributed data processing, large scale MIMO, millimeter wave communications, cognitive radio, and network security.

Dr. Elkashlan currently serves as an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, and the IEEE Communications Letters. He also serves as the Lead Guest Editor for the special issue on Green Media: The Future of Wireless Multimedia Networks of the IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine, Lead Guest Editor for the special issue on Millimeter Wave Communications for 5G of the IEEE Communications Magazine, and Guest Editor for the special issue on Location Awareness for Radios and Networks of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications. He received the Best Paper Award at the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC-Spring) in 2013. He received the Exemplary Reviewer Certificate of the IEEE Communications Letters in 2012.
