Dr. Ubaid Ahmad

Senior Researcher

Ubaid Ahmad received his BSc degree in Mechatronics Engineering from National University of Sciences and Technology, Pakistan in 2006 and the MSc degree in Electronic Engineering from King’s College London, U.K. in 2008. From 2009-2014 he received a scholarship from the Flemish government "Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology" for his PhD. In 2014, he earned his PhD in Electrical Engineering from KU Leuven, Belgium, with the research work performed at IMEC. The main focus of his work during his PhD was on the design and implementation of MIMO detection algorithms for Software Defined Radios (SDR). From 2014 to 2017, he was working as an R&D Engineer at IMEC on 79GHz Automotive Radar Systems. His key research interests are MIMO systems, SDR and algorithm architecture co-design of DSP systems.

Dr. Ubaid is a Senior Researcher at EBTIC where his main research is focused on indoor localization over WLANs and location-enabled communication services. The aim of the research is to propose and develop TOA and TDOA based technology solutions using IEEE 802.11 WLAN infrastructure to estimate the location of a mobile device. The goal is to develop a prototype to demonstrate the proposed solution.
