Dr Muhammad Zeeshan

Research Fellow at the Waterford Institute of Technology

Muhammad Zeeshan is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Walton Institute of Information and Communication Systems Science, Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland, where he is currently working on wireless communications for smart agriculture in VistaMilk project. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering with specialization in wireless communications, from College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Pakistan in 2015. From 2010 to 2016, he was with the Centre for Advanced Research in Engineering (CARE), Pakistan, first as a Senior Design Engineer, and then as a Member Technical staff, starting 2014. From 2016 to 2021, he has been working at the Department of Electrical Engineering, College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, NUST, Pakistan, first as an Assistant Professor, and then as an Associate Professor, starting May 2021.

From September 2021 to January 2022, he was a Research Fellow at the Wearable Technologies Lab, University of Sussex, United Kingdom, where he worked in collaboration with Huawei Technologies for the development of electric-field based short-range communication system for wearable devices. His broader research interests include software defined radio waveform development, cooperative communication, UAV swarms, non-orthogonal multiple access and digital design of wireless communication systems. At Walton Institute, his Emerging Networks Laboratory (ENL) focuses its research efforts on the design and configuration of communication networks, beyond 5G communication, software defined radio, and is interested in seeking interdisciplinary research collaboration in the areas of AI for wireless communication, IoT in smart farming and precision agriculture. He is looking forward to meeting like-minded individuals at the EU crucible and developing research collaboration in the areas of UAV swarm communication, smart farming, and precision agriculture.
