Dr. Yasser Fouad: received the B.Sc. degree (Hons.) in electronics and communications engineering from the Arab Academy for Science and Technology and Maritime Transport, Cairo, Egypt, in 2009, and the M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, in 2011 and 2018, respectively. Between 2015 and 2019 he was a Wireless Research Scientist with Intel Labs where he contributed to the prototype development and standardization of Intel’s Narrow Band Internet-of-Things (NB-IoT) and Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) solutions. He is currently a Staff Engineer with Samsung Large Scale Integration (LSI). His main focus is on the development and 3GPP standardization of Samsung’s solutions for 5G verticals including 3GPP New Radio (NR) Sidelink. He also supports the modem design team on aspects relating to V2X and NR Sidelink. During his career, he co-authored 7 IEEE journal and conference papers and 37 US patents. In addition, he co-authored many 3GPP standard contributions on NB-IoT, NR V2X, and NR Sidelink. He also acted as a reviewer for many IEEE journals and conferences including IEEE Transactions on Communications (TCOM), IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC), and IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC). His research interests include designing efficient resource allocation schemes for relay-assisted cellular networks, applications of graph theory in the design of distributed medium access control schemes for multihop Device-to-Device (D2D) networks, and designing power allocation techniques in multiuser systems with multiple antennas.
