Pakistani Student, Qurat-ul-Ain, Wins Award for 5G Wireless Communication Networks

Pakistani PhD student, Qurat-ul-Ain Nadeem, at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAIST) has won the prestigious Marconi Society Paul Baran Young Scholar Award for her work in transmission technology.

Qurat-ul-Ain Nadeem received her bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS.) She received a master’s degree from KAUST in 2015 and has been working on her Ph.D. in the research group of Professor Mohamed-Slim Alouini in the University’s Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering division since 2016.

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



more women in the region to enter the field of science and accomplish even greater things. I’m really…honored to be considered worthy of being among Marconi Society Young Scholars and to have my work recognized by luminaries in the fields of wireless communications and networking.”

Qurat and three other young scholars will receive their award along with a prize money of $5000 in Bologna, Italy on October 2, 2018.
