Mr. Nozhan Hosseinali, Ph.D. Student

Nozhan received his BS in Electronics from the University of Kashan, Iran, and his MS from the University of Bologna, and will be working on satellite-aircraft networking.

Mr. Hollis (Eddie) King, Ph.D. Student


Mr. Jinwen Liu, Ph.D. Student

Jinwen received his BSEE degree in 2013 from Beijing Institute of Technology, China, and his MSEE degree from Syracuse University in 2015. He worked as a product test engineer at China Mobile Research Institute. He joined the WSEL in January 2015, and has begun work on K-band satellite channel modeling.

Mr. Mohsen Mohanad, Ph.D. Student

Mohsen received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Basrah University, Iraq, in 2004, and his MS degree from Brunel University, UK, in 2010. He spent several years working in Iraq at Furatphone, on CDMA technology. He joined the WSEL in 2014. His research involves multi-antenna modeling and processing for 5th generation wireless systems.  Mohanad Mohsen successfully defended his Ph.D. dissertation, entitled  "30 GHz Path Loss Modeling and Performance Evaluation for Non-coherent M-ary Frequency Shift Keying in the 30 GHz Band" in December 2019. Mr. Mohsen will make final revisions to this dissertation and plan to graduate in Spring 2020.
