His paper was co-supervised by Walaa Hamouda, professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Amr Youssef, professor and associate director of the Concordia Institute for Information Systems Engineering (CIISE).
“We developed mathematical models and proposed elegant frameworks to answer critical questions related to network performance,” explains Kamel, who published his findings in IEEE Transactions on Communications.
“This will encourage operators to build robust wireless networks ready for 5G mobile communications.”
Kamel first became interested in this area of wireless communications in order to conduct research that is relevant to both academics and individuals working in industry. He credits Concordia for fostering an environment that does not set limits on his creativity.
“The research environment at Concordia provided me with tools to unlock my potential and improve my competencies,” Kamel says. “The constant support and guidance of my supervisors also helped to answer my research questions and release my findings in high quality publications.”
Radical film culture
Fibla Gutierrez focuses his research on non-commercial cinema during the Second Spanish Republic. The fourth-year PhD candidate in film and moving image studies investigates the relationship between 1920s and 1930s film culture, and the emergence of new social, political and cultural formations.
