Helaoui, Mohamed

Mohamed Helaoui, Professor

Professor Helaoui received the MSc and PhD degrees in communications and information technology from École Supérieure des Communications de Tunis, Tunisia, in 2003 and 2006, respectively, and the PhD degree in electrical engineering from the University of Calgary in 2009. His research activities are funded by over $3 million over the last 10 years. These funds were provided by federal and provincial funding agencies (NSERC and AITF) and industrial collaborators such as the Canadian Space Agency, Ericsson Canada, Norsat International, Nanowave Technologies, the National Research Counsil of Canada,and CMC microsystems. He supervised over 50 graduate and undergraduate students and over 10 postdoctoral fellows.

Administration

hammam

Hammam Orabi

Hi, this is Hammam! 

I'm a lab manager here, and a PhD student. my interests are in Statistical Signal Processing and its applications in MIMO systems. I also speak FPGAs, DSPs and Microcontrollers! 

I received my Master's degree from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, 2014, and my Bachelor's degree from Damascus University, 2011, both in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering. 

When I'm not in the lab, you may find me backpacking in Alberta's amazing wilderness!

Dawood

Dawood Shekari Beyragh

Dawood Shekari Beyragh (Member, IEEE) received his B.S. degree from the University of Tabriz, Tabriz, Iran, in 2003, and his M.S. degree from Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran, in 2006, both in electrical engineering.

From 2006 to 2016, he was a design engineer with the Information and Communication Technology Institute, Isfahan, Iran, where he was involved in the design and implementation of various types of passive and active microwave circuits and systems.

He is currently a Ph.D. candidate at iRadio Lab, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Calgary, Calgary, Canada. He collaborated with Canadian Space Agency, where he was part of the design team for developing a fully integrated front-end module for a C-band synthetic aperture radar from 2018 to 2020.

ahmadreza

Ahmadreza Motaqi

Ahmadreza (reza) Motaqi is currently pursuing Ph.D degree at the University of Calgary. He has been working on hardware implementation of digital systems on FPGA for almost a decade. Having such background in hardware design combined with radio frequency knowledge led him to focus on one of the most challenging topics in developing state of the art 5G and 5G+ wireless systems; Digital Predistortion (DPD) algorithms. He is working toward the linearization and distortion compensation in MIMO wireless platforms. To pave the road, he has developed a state-of-the-art MIMO platform driving a 4x4 phased array antenna with fully controlled digital paths. Having an advanced wireless platform plus his obsession with Artificial Intelligence (AI) led him toward the applications of AI in MIMO DPD design.  In addition to his academic activities, he is very outgoing and fascinated by the beauty of the nature.
