KAUST Ph.D. candidate Mohamed Abdelwaheb Bahloul recently won first place at the IEEE International Multi-Conference on Systems, Signals and Devices 2021 (SSD’21) PhD Students Contest. The contest provided a showcase for students’ original work related to electrical engineering and information technology.
Yasmine Marani is a control system engineering graduate from the National Polytechnic School of Algiers, Algeria. Yasmine aspires to engage in high-quality academic research and to participate in expanding her research field and its applications to real-world problems. She joined KAUST this spring as a Ph.D. candidate and member of the Estimation, Modeling, and Analysis Group under the supervision of Professor Taous-Meriem Laleg-Kirati.

Congratulations to Mr. Abderrazak Chahid, Ph.D. candidate, who is the Africa-Middle East Finalist at the 2020 EMBC Student Paper Competition. Abderrazak will present presented his work, in July in the 42​ Annual Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference.

It is commonly recognized that assessing the vascular impedance at the level of the ascending aorta provides valuable information about the physiological state of the cardiovascular system. In this study, Mohamed Bahloul and Prof. Meriem Laleg investigate the arterial Windkessel model within a fractional-order modeling framework.
