Biography

Ismail Ben Mabrouk received the B.A.Sc. and M.A.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Lille, Lille, France in 2006 and 2007, respectively and the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Quebec, Canada, in 2012. From 2007 to 2009 he was with Huawei Technologies, Paris, France. He is a recipient of the Abu Dhabi Award for Research Excellence (AARE). He is currently an Assistant Professor at Durham University, Durham, UK. His research activities have been centred on antenna design at the millimiter-wave and THz frequencies, propagation studies for Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems, Deep Learning, and Wireless Body Area Network for medical applications.

Prospective Students

I’m always looking for self-motivated students who want to pursue a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering. If you have a solid background in Antenna Theory or Radio Propagation, please drop me an email with your CV.
