Dr. Emad's is a Postdoc Fellow at the Integrated Photonics Laboratory under the supervision of Prof. Yating Wan at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Before joining KAUST, Dr Emad acquired his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering (Photonics major) at the King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM), Saudi Arabia, while simultaneously working as a full-time lecturer in The Electrical Engineering Department at Jubail Industrial College (JIC). 

Dr. Emad's Ph.D. thesis is titled: “InAs/InP Quantum Dash Laser in L-Band Wavelength Division Multiplexed Passive Optical Networks: Device and System Investigation,” where broadband quantum dash lasers were investigated on a device-level, then implemented in system-level applications. He displayed a great deal of enthusiasm and commitment as a researcher which has been reflected in his research publications of 14 journal papers, 2 book chapters, and 25+ international conference papers, most of which he presented. In addition, Dr. Emad has managed all that, while working as a full-time lecturer at Jubail Industrial College, in a timely manner of 3.5 years. 

Research Interests

Dr. Emad's research interests are in semiconductor lasers, photonic generation of millimeter-waves (THz) for 5G and radio-over-fiber applications and systems, Machine Learning and A.I.
