Faculty Profile

Dr. Muhammad Tahir

Assistant Professor

Department of Electrical Engineering

Dr. Muhammad Tahir received the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in 2007 from University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore and the Master of Science in Electronic Engineering in 2009 from Politecnico di Torino, Italy. In April 2013, he obtained his Ph.D. degree also from Politecnico di Torino, Italy in the field of Electronics and Telecommunication. His research activity is focused on the development of novel algorithms for satellite navigation receiver technology. His research interests include receiver baseband signal processing algorithm design and development, Bayesian signal processing, detection and estimation theory, channel coding in communication networks, machine learning and sequential Monte Carlo methods.
