Noha Hasan

PhD Candidate

A Specialist Engineer and Project Manager in SCADA systems conducted management, and supervised installation of the new upgrading projects of the SCADA systems (hardware and software). Also I Supported operations in various capacities, including troubleshooting, maintaining Instruments & Controlling management teams. I am conducting my PhD research in heterogeneous massive MIMO systems, finding new techniques to reduce pilot contamination, which is a hot topic in this field. I introduced two methods to solve this problem. Also, I worked on the optimum deployment of base stations in different tiers to minimize interference between all of them. Also, I introduced a new method to associate users to base stations in different tiers based on signal to interference ratio when the system is open access.
