Waseem Ozan completed his MSc degree in Wireless and Optical Communications from the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at UCL which he graduated with Distinction in 2015.

During the master degree, he joined the communications and information systems group for the master project, developing spectrally efficient frequency division multiplexing (SEFDM) signals for advanced wireless communication systems under Prof. Izzat Darwazeh's supervision.

In January 2016, he re-joined the group as a PhD student, on a UCL funded studentship, working on a new signal format developed jointly between UCL and Princeton University, the work has practical and fundamental elements addressing wireless communication systems. His PhD research is based on collaborative with Dr Kyle Jamieson at Princeton University.

His research is based on communications engineering, with a focus on wireless systems. Wireless communication systems, such as those used in mobile/cellular systems and wireless LANs (Wi-Fi), require efficient modulation techniques to save spectrum and ultimately cost by implementing the systems of high efficiency and low complexity.

The aim of his research project is to implement and develop transmitter and receiver architectures for a new UCL and Princeton University system, named Truncated Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (TOFDM), and to assess the performance of such system using mathematical modelling, simulation software, hardware implementation and verification in realistic environment and scenarios.

Waseem was awarded a best paper award at the CSNDSP 2016 IEEE conference and awarded finalist in Wireless Communication from NI Engineering Impact Awards in 2017.
