Dr Ali Ghrayeb

Dr Ali Ghrayeb, a professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Programme at Texas A&M University at Qatar (Tamuq), has been elevated to Fellow grade of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 
IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and recognised as a prestigious honour and distinctive career achievement. Ghrayeb has been recognised “for contributions to modulation design and implementation of multiple antenna wireless systems”, Tamuq has said in a statement.  
He has made significant contributions to the advancement of modulation design and implementation of multiple antenna wireless communications systems known as multiple-input multiple-output, or Mimo. 
Mimo is considered one of the most important breakthroughs in the history of wireless communications, revolutionising the telecom industry and penetrating almost all wireless standards.
Ghrayeb’s contributions in modulation design for Mimo systems are being considered for inclusion in future wireless standards, especially 5G, Li-Fi and the Internet of Things. For example, Orange France has built a testbed and demonstrated the efficacy of his schemes for 5G. Samsung and China Mobile Research Institute have also successfully conducted a 5G prototype trial employing Ghrayeb’s modulation schemes. 
His contributions on low-complexity Mimo systems have made their way to a number of wireless standards, including the IEEE 802.11 standard (transmit antenna selection). It is an option for the Cisco AirNet wireless LAN system and has been included in the LTE Standard (base-station antenna selection) for various deployment options. 
Lastly, his work on low-complexity decoding has been implemented by a number of leading companies in the storage industry.
Ghrayeb joined the Texas A&M at Qatar faculty in 2012 and was previously a professor at Concordia University (Canada).
