Areas of research expertise and interest


Q Z Ahmed is a Lecturer in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Huddersfield, UK. He received his Electrical Engineering degree from the National University of Science and Technology, Pakistan, in 2001, the MSc. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California, USC, Los Angeles, USA in 2005, and his Ph.D. degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering from University of Southampton, UK, in 2009. During his PhD he worked on Ultra-wide bandwidth systems. From 2009 to 2011, he was working as an Assistant Professor at the National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences (NUCES), Islamabad, Pakistan. In 2011 he started working as a Post-doctoral Fellow at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) on Cooperative Communications. In 2015, he started working as a Lecturer at the University of Kent where he was involved with research on millimetre wave and device to device communications.
