Dr. Ahmed’s research interests include linear and non-linear optimization techniques, low complexity parameter estimation for communication and radar systems, passive radar, and waveforms design for MIMO radar. He is a senior member of IEEE and a recipient of contribution award from the University of Edinburgh for his exceptional research on waveform design for MIMO radar on a Defense Science and Technology Laboratory, Ministry of Defense UK Project.
Dr. Sajid Ahmed (M’08, SM’12) did his B.S in Electronics Engineering from Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology Karachi, Pakistan in 1998 and M. Sc in Communication Engineering from University of Manchester, Institute of Science and Technology, UK in 2002. He completed his PhD in Digital Signal Processing at the King’s College London and Cardiff University, UK in 2005. He was a researcher at the Queen’s University Belfast, UK and the University of Edinburgh, UK. From January 2012 to June 2017, he worked in the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Thuwal, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a Research Scientist.
