Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Wael’s research focuses on investigating and developing different techniques for massive MIMO (5G and beyond), with an interest in increasing spectral efficiency. He is the system engineer for the University of Bristol 128 massive MIMO testebed.  He has been evaluating the practicality of using massive MIMO in real-world scenarios and identifying solutions to operational deployments uncovered. Wael has also been developing a wireless SDN framework. He designed and built a multi-RAT switching technique between massive MIMO and LTE.  He led the massive MIMO team at the ‘5G Layered Realities Weekend’ -Showcase in Bristol’, successfully establishing reliable video streams in the world’s first urban 5G showcase in 2018. He was also a member of the University of Bristol research team that set spectral efficiency world records in 2016 in collaboration with the research team from Lund University.

Wael has been collaborating with international, EU and UK organisations, such as National Instruments, Lund University and Britch Telecommunications. He worked on EU and UK projects, such as 5G Testbeds & Trials, TOUCAN and 5G-PICTURE. His PhD project was proposed by the BBC to evaluate the practicality of using massive MIMO in wireless cameras.
