Dr Shuja Ansari

  • Lecturer: UESTC (Autonomous Systems & Connectivity)

Biography

Shuja Ansari (IEEE M'15-SM’20, IET M'15) received the M.Sc. degree (distinction) in Telecommunications Engineering in 2015, and the Ph.D. degree in Engineering in 2019 from Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU), UK. 

He is currently a Lecturer with the Glasgow College UESTC James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow (UofG) and Wave-1 Urban 5G use case implementation lead at Glasgow 5G Testbed (G5G) funded by the Scotland 5G Centre. 

Prior to this post, he was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate working with Professor Muhammad Ali Imran on the planning, installation and commissioning of a campus wide 5G network as part of the Wave-1 Innovation Districts funded by the Scottish Government with a worth of £1.6m.

Dr Ansari has previously worked in the telecom operator industry in the radio planning and optimisation department as well as network operations side. He has co-edited a book on beyond 5G airborne communication networks titled "Autonomous Airborne Mobile Networks" published by Wiley-IEEE press. He is an invited representative of the University of Glasgow at ITU-T focus group on Vehicular Multimedia which is a part of ITU-T Study group 16. 

Dr Ansari has been endorsed by the Royal Academy of Engineering as a promising leader in the field of telecommunications and artificial intelligence.
