Key details

Dr Karim M Nasr

Senior Lecturer in Electrical Engineering (Wireless Communications)

Dr Karim Nasr was awarded his doctoral degree from the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom with a thesis on "Smart Antenna Systems for Wireless Networks". 

Prior to joining the University of Greenwich as a Senior Lecturer in Electrical Engineering (Wireless Communications), Dr Nasr held several postdoctoral and academic positions at the University of Manchester, Brunel University, BBC Research, NPL, Kingston University and the University of Surrey (5GIC) investigating future wireless and broadcast communication systems through a number of successful UK and European research projects.

He was previously a visiting researcher at the antennas and propagation division of Aalborg University in Denmark and is currently a visiting researcher at the Institute for Communication Systems (ICS), 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) at the University of Surrey.

Dr Nasr has contributed to over 100 publications and industrial reports, he is a reviewer for several transactions and acted as a TPC member for several conferences. Dr Nasr is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), a Senior Member of the IEEE (SMIEEE), a Member of the IET (MIET), a Member of the Institute of Physics (MInstP) and a member of several European COST actions on wireless communication systems (COST actions 273, 2100 and IRACON).
