Salman Durrani received the B.Sc. (1st class honours) degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore, Pakistan in 2000. He received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia in Dec. 2004. He has been with the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia, since 2005, where he is currently Senior Lecturer in the Research School of Engineering, College of Engineering & Computer Science.
Dr Durrani has supervised 2 postdocs, 9 PhD students (4 graduated), 5 ME Hons students, 13 BE RnD students and 23 BE Hons students to date. He has co-authored more than 100 publications in refereed international journals and conferences. He has examined more than 10 external PhD/Masters theses to date. His research interests are in wireless communications and signal processing, including synchronization in communication systems, wireless energy harvesting systems, outage and connectivity of finite area networks and signal processing on the unit sphere. He was awarded an ANU Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence in 2012. He currently serves as an Editor of the IEEE Transactions On Communications and as the Chair of the ACT Chapter of the IEEE Signal Processing and Communications Societies. He is Member of Engineers Australia, Senior Fellow of The Higher Education Academy, UK and Senior Member of IEEE, USA.
My current research interests include:
- Wireless power transfer and energy harvesting
- Wireless ad-hoc, sensor and device to device networks
- Synchronization and channel estimation
- Heterogeneous networks
- Stochastic geometry
