She published pioneer works on the development of 3-D channel models and spatial correlation functions. More recently, she put different aspects of FD-MIMO together to provide a mathematical framework for the design of elevation beamforming schemes in single-cell and multi-cell scenarios. Her works have gained a lot of visibility in a short time.”
She said, “I am a Pakistani woman pursuing a Ph.D. in Saudi Arabia, which speaks about the country’s new focus on research and innovation,” KAIST has definitely taken the lead in promoting science and technology in [Saudi Arabia], and I think that this award will…encourage
