Naveed Ahmed Abbasi did his bachelors with honors in electrical engineering from Air University, Pakistan. After graduation, he worked in a private sector company and developed consumer electronics. He did his Masters from Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi'an, P.R. China, with specialization in Signal and Information Processing and did research work on distributive compression techniques for hyperspectral images. He then taught as a Lecturer at the Avionics Department of Institute of Avionics and Aeronautics, Air University. He also worked with private sector companies during this period as a consultant. He is currently a research assistant at the Next-generation and Wireless Communications Laboratory (NWCL) and pursuing a Ph.D. degree under the supervision of Prof. Ozgur B. Akan at the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department, Koc University, Istanbul, Turkey. His current research interests focus on molecular and nanoscale communications, Internet of Things (IoT) and the application of low THz technology in 5G systems.
