Dr. Ali Ahmed
Assistant Professor
PhD - Georgia Institute of Technology, USA

His research interests include inverse problems in signal processing and machine learning using tools from probability and optimization theory. In particular, his major research work includes efficient sampling schemes in array processing, and a fundamental contribution to the classical problem of blind deconvolution in signal processing and communication.


Ali Ahmed received his B.Sc. (2005) in electrical engineering from UET, Pakistan; MS (2008) in electrical from University of Michigan, USA; MS (2013) in Mathematics; and PhD (2013) in electrical engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, USA. He has been working at the Imaging and computing lab at MIT since 2014 till to-date as a post-doctoral research fellow.
