I joined KAUST because of the opportunity to collaborate with top researchers like Prof. Mohamed-Slim Alouini.
I have always liked Probability Theory and Calculus, and Communications Theory tries to address practical problems by borrowing tools from both these areas of mathematics extensively. That is why I chose Communications Theory as my broad area of research.

Muhammad Salman Bashir is working as a Postdoc Fellow under the supervision of Prof. Mohamed-Slim Alouini as part of the Communication Theory Lab (CTL) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).

Education and Early Career

 Muhammad Salman Bashir got his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering with Honors from the University of Engineering and Technology Lahore, an M.S. in Telecommunication Engineering from the National University of  Computer and Emerging Sciences Lahore, and an M.S. and a  Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Purdue University West Lafayette, Indiana, United States. He had taught at the National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences Lahore as an Assistant Professor before he joined KAUST as a visiting faculty member. 

Research Interest 

The broad focus of Salman’s research at Purdue University was in the applications of Statistical Signal Processing/Adaptive Filtering techniques to wireless communications.  He was involved in developing pointing, acquisition and tracking algorithms for free-space optical communications at the Lab of Active Sensing Systems (LASS) at Purdue.
At KAUST, Salman is interested in developing signal processing techniques for pointing, acquisition and tracking problems in free-space optics and TeraHertz communications.
Salman is proficient in Python and Julia programming languages. 

Honors and Awards

Salman received a gold medal for obtaining first position in the graduate program at the National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences Lahore in 2009. He was also the recipient of the Department of State’s prestigious International Fulbright Science and Technology Award in 2011 for pursuing Ph.D. at Purdue University.
