    Dr. Nasreddine, Jad

    Associate Professor

    Biography: Dr. Jad Nasreddine is an expert in radio communication with over 10 years of experience in telecommunication industry and academy. He is presently an Associate Professor at Rafik Hariri University. Previously, he was the RAN/Core product manager at Mobinets. Between 2005 and 2012 he was working as researcher and senior researcher at Telecom-Bretagne, BarcelonaTech, and RWTH Aachen. During his stay in RWTH Aachen, he was acting as project manager for European and industrial projects on designing and prototyping cognitive radio solutions for wireless networks and LTE systems with first-class European universities and international companies such as France telecom, imec, Microsoft, Toshiba, and Huawei.

    Dr. Nasreddine has been actively participating in several European projects, international standardization bodies, and international conferences and workshops to develop new techniques for wireless systems such as cognitive radio, self-organizing networks, UMTS, LTE/LTE-Advanced, propagation models and femtocells. He has been also developing and instructing variety of courses and laboratories on telecommunication systems. Dr. Nasreddine served as track chair, associated editor, TPC and reviewer for several conferences and journals. He is author of over 50 technical papers and owner of three industrial innovation reports.
