Prof. Dr. Munnujahan Ara, Head
Professor

I finished my PhD in telecommunication from the university of Porto, Portugal under the MAP (University of Minho, Aveiro and Porto)-TELE programme from December 2008 to October 2013. I have finished my BSc and MSc degree from Mathematics Discipline, Khulna University, Khulna, Bangladesh. After finishing my MSc, I joined as a lecturer in the same discipline and now I am working as a professor of the discipline.

My PhD research builds upon the information-theoretic security foundations to analyze, design and optimization schemes, or in a broader sense, transmission schemes, for wireless communications systems, exploring also their applications in current standards for wireless systems such as WiFi and WiMax.

My PhD thesis title was: Reliable and Secure Wireless Communications Systems: A Physical-Layer Approach.
